Faculty Fellowship

Several JHU faculty smile and laugh at an AGHI lecture, lit by late-afternoon sunlight.

Since its founding in 2016, the Alexander Grass Humanities Institute has aimed to serve the Hopkins community as a focal point for humanities and social sciences departments, programs, and centers across the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences. We are delighted to announce AGHI’s newest initiative, aimed at fostering interdisciplinary dialogue, inspiring creative collaborations, and forging communal bonds: the AGHI Faculty Fellowship.

The core of the Fellowship is our biweekly Friday lunches: convivial gatherings centered around work-in-progress presentations and discussions. Complementing the vibrant intellectual activities that go on within departments, these gatherings offer faculty along with Society of Fellows postdocs and AGHI graduate fellows the opportunity to convey the essence and relevance of their work to and receive feedback from colleagues outside their own disciplines and beyond the traditional parameters of classrooms, departments, and institutional hierarchies.   

For academic year 2023–2024, these Faculty Fellows have been selected from the full range of humanistic departments, disciplines, and ranks. All Faculty Fellows are expected to attend the Friday lunches, present their work to the group, and find ways to involve students in their project. They each receive $10,000 in additional research funds, half of which are unrestricted, and half of which are intended to facilitate meaningful graduate and/or undergraduate student engagement. We also welcome a small number of emeriti faculty fellows, who receive a research budget of $2500.
