Faculty affiliates win Oregon Humanities Center fellowships

Nine CSWS faculty affiliates are recipients of Oregon Humanities Center (OHC) 2022-23 faculty research and teaching fellowships.

The program supports University of Oregon faculty members in producing research and developing courses in the humanities. Recipients of a faculty research fellowship get a term free of teaching to pursue full-time research, which they are expected to share with the community in talks and public presentations. Teaching fellowship recipients are expected to create or redesign undergraduate humanities courses. See the fellowships page of the Oregon Humanities Center website for more details.
