Announcing the 2023-24 Society of Fellows Graduate Team Cohort

Abstract composition

The Global Arts + Humanities Discovery Theme is pleased to announce the eight recipients of the 2023-24 Graduate Team Fellowship competition. The incoming fellows, currently pursuing either PhD or MFA degrees, join us from six different departments.

The Graduate Team Fellowship program at Ohio State is the first team-based, arts and humanities graduate fellowship program in the United States. The Global Arts + Humanities Graduate Team Fellowships are financial awards made on the basis of academic merit through a division-wide competition. These fellowships are given to recognize the cross-disciplinary aspirations and accomplishments of graduate students in the division of arts and humanities. The fellowship competition is open to students whose projects engage cross-disciplinary critical and/or creative practices as well as students who seek to foster the development of participatory networks with local Columbus communities. Fellows may be at any phase of their dissertation research or terminal degree project.
