The Stanford Humanities Center welcomes a new cohort of undergraduates, including international relations major Isabelle Carpenter, who have been awarded Hume Humanities Honors Fellowships for the 2019-20 academic year.
Each of the students was selected through nominations by faculty advisors and is writing an honors thesis in one of Stanford’s humanities departments. Their research topics include the 1857 revolt in India against British imperialism, photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, medieval religious and gender history, and the relationship between British novelists Virginia Woolf and Thomas Hardy.
The Hume Fellows receive a stipend for research project materials, have a shared workplace in a Humanities Center undergraduate office and participate in group activities.
The fellowship program was established seven years ago for eight seniors majoring in a humanities discipline, and this year it has been expanded to include 10 fellows.
The fellows are:
Art History and American Studies
International Relations and Comparative Literature; minor in Middle Eastern Literatures, Languages and Cultures
Ravi Veriah Jacques
History and East Asian Studies
Philosophy and Religious Studies, Mathematics
History and French; minor in Italian
Political Science and Art History
African and African American Studies
Classics and Computer Science
