Society of Fellows

Fellow Emilie Anne-Yvonne Luse discusses her dissertation
on the modern art movement's French art critics in Interwar France.

Now in its fifth year, the Society of Fellows provides research scholarships to graduate and professional students, visiting scholars and postdocs.  A collaborative program between the Council for European Studies, Duke University Center for Jewish Studies, and the Religions and Public Life Initiative at the Kenan Institute for Ethics, the Society of Fellows meets once a month for the duration of the academic year. At these monthly meetings, our Fellows are able to workshop their writing with their peers from a range of disciplines.  Fellows have access to a private blog, which provides a lively space for academic discussion. Additionally, Fellows are provided the opportunity to record a brief video highlighting their academic work.

To see some of our previous Fellows, please visit our Youtube playlist, that features interviews with our scholars, as well as videos of past events.

For the 2016 – 2017 academic year, the Society of Fellows has divided into two working groups, ‘Religions and Public Life in Global Europe’ and ‘Jews and Muslims: Histories, Diasporas, and the Meaning of the European.’

Applications for the Society of Fellows are currently closed.
