An innovative and exciting group of Brown faculty members and community leaders in the arts and humanities serve as Public Humanities Fellows at the John Nicholas Brown Center for Public Humanities and Cultural Heritage. Each fellow works on a public humanities project and becomes a resource for Public Humanities students.
Faculty members using innovative methods for presenting their research to the public, including the digital humanities; those conducting research in collaboration with community organizations; and/or faculty seeking to incorporate
public engagement in their courses find support through the fellowship program. Culture workers from the non-profit community use their fellowship to pursue a program of reading, writing, and thinking or to engage in a specific project with the support of Center staff, faculty, and students.
