Mark Lipovetsky and Jessica Merrill: 2022 - 2023 Heymen Center Fellows

Funded by the Office of the Executive Vice-President of the Arts & Sciences, the Heyman Center Fellowships provide four junior and four senior Columbia faculty with course relief during the academic year. These fellowships allow faculty to reduce their teaching loads to a minimum of one course per semester during the award year in order to conduct research and to participate in a regular weekly seminar, chaired by the Heyman Fellows Seminar Director (a member of the Governing Board of the Society of Fellows and Heyman Center for the Humanities).
