The Humanities Institute has named its faculty fellows for 2015-16

Since its founding in 2005, the University at Buffalo’s Humanities Institute has been committed to the idea that scholarship in the humanities helps us to question, comprehend, and transform an increasingly complex world. The Humanities Institute provides a forum for conversations among humanists of all disciplines.

The Humanities Institute has named its faculty fellows for 2015-16. “The fellows are chosen from a highly competitive pool of applicants,” says Erik Seeman, director of the Humanities Institute. “Their projects represent the most innovative, cutting-edge research in the humanities, not just at UB but in their fields internationally.” The Humanities Institute showcases the intellectual excitement generated by the fellows in its monthly Scholars@Hallwalls lectures. Lectures are free and open to the public.

The 2015-16 fellows are:

  • Judith Goldman, assistant professor, Department of English
  • Philip Kiernan, assistant professor, Department of Classics
  • Carine Mardorossian, professor, Department of English
  • Ndubueze Mbah, assistant professor, Department of History
  • Mark Nathan, assistant professor, Department of History
  • Paige Sarlin, assistant professor, Department of Media Study
  • Marla Segol, associate professor, Department of Transnational Studies
