During their time at the Baker-Nord Center, Fellows will pursue individual or collaborative research and writing for the full academic year. An essential feature of the program is that Fellows make intellectual contributions to the CWRU community, through their participation in workshops, lectures and courses. Fellows will be affiliated with one or more of the humanities departments represented on the BNC Steering Committee: Art History and Art, Classics, English, History, Modern Languages and Literatures, Music, Philosophy, Religious Studies, and Theater.
