Denise Walsh Selected as an Inaugeral Mellon Humanities Fellow

Tuesday, December 8, 2015

The Mellon Humanities Fellows Program is part of a broad multi-year Global South research initiative funded through a partnership between the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the College and Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.

The Institute of the Humanities and Global Cultures (IHGC) has selected five Arts & Sciences faculty members for the first class of the new Mellon Humanities Fellows Program. The new fellows include Hanadi Al-Samman (Middle Eastern and South Asian Languages and Cultures), Lawrie Balfour (Politics), Nomi Dave (Music), Nichole Flores (Religious Studies) and Denise Walsh (Politics and Women, Gender & Sexuality). 
Associate Professor Denise Walsh (Politics and Women, Gender & Sexuality) will do a research project that include creating an interdisciplinary course on Power, Violence and Inequality in the Global South, focusing on the politico-cultural spaces shaped by the histories of globalization. The seminar will become a core course in Walsh’s teaching repertoire and will serve as a resource for her next research project, tentatively titled The Transnational Politics of Sexual Violence.
