2012-13 Faculty and Faculty Fellows

“I felt privileged to have the opportunity to learn from, and engage with, this remarkable and diverse group of people. My brain was stretched and twisted into thrilling and uncomfortable positions, and for that I am grateful. The spirit of serious interdisciplinary discourse with open-minded and passionate people advanced my work in medical humanities.”

Jay Baruch, MD, Emergency Medicine
Faculty Fellow, Spring 2011

Brown boasts outstanding faculty members whose work both challenges and redefines the boundaries of the humanities. Cogut Center Faculty Fellows pursue research and writing projects during semester-long fellowships at the Center and gather for Fellows' Seminars on a regular basis to discuss their work in progress. Faculty Fellows have the option of spending a sabbatical semester at the Cogut Center or teaching an upper-level seminar course based on their research project.
