Hyde Hall is home to the Institute for the Arts and Humanities.

The Institute for the Arts and Humanities has announced the 2024-2025 Faculty Fellows. The Faculty Fellowship Program offers College of Arts and Sciences faculty the opportunity to pursue ambitious artistic and scholarly projects that lead to publication, exhibition, composition or performance.

During a semester-long, on-campus Fellowship, Fellows meet weekly to exchange ideas with an interdisciplinary cohort of peers. Faculty Fellows often demonstrate a track record of engaging in scholarship that breaks new ground in their respective fields, having an interest in communicating the results of their research to a broader audience, and working to bring that knowledge back into the classroom.

The Fellows and their projects are listed below.
