Cogut Collaborative Humanities Fellowship Award Recipients Include Comp Lit PhD Students

The Cogut Collaborative Humanities Fellowship supports graduate students at any stage of their pursuit of the Doctoral Certificate in Collaborative Humanities and relieves students in the second, third, or fourth year of their doctoral program from all teaching duties in their home department.

Ahmad & AndresComparative Literature graduate students, Ahmad Abu Ahmad and Andrés Emil González, now in their third year, have both received the Cogut Collaborative Humanities Fellowship award for the 2023-24 AY. The fellowship would take the place of all their teaching duties next year, and provide them with funding to support their research. Ahmad and Andrés are currently completing the Doctoral Certificate in Collaborative Humanities, which fosters collaborative and interdisciplinary scholarship and training in the humanities.

Presently, Ahmad is focusing on the politics of language – in speech and translation – in Palestinian literature and film vis-à-vis Arabic and Hebrew, and Andrés is centering his work on the political and knowledge practices of contemporary (21st) horror literature and film, primarily in Latin America. Congratulations!
