Kellogg Institute Director Paolo Carozza announced the results of the Institute's annual Visiting Fellowship competition on Thursday. Twelve scholars representing six disciplines across the social sciences, law, and public policy were selected as 2014–15 visiting fellows out of a pool of more than 100 applicants.
"I am delighted to announce that we have a particularly rich and diverse cohort of new fellows joining the Kellogg community next year," said Carozza.
"I am also pleased that we will be hosting a Hewlett Visiting Fellow in Public Policy this year—the distinguished jurist Diego Garcia-Sayán of the Inter-American Court for Human Rights—as well as one of the most prominent and accomplished historians in his field, Jorge Cañizares-Esguerra of the University of Texas at Austin."
More than half of the new visiting fellows hail originally from Asia, Latin America, or Europe. They are currently based at institutions in Costa Rica, Italy, Mexico, Singapore, and the United States. Two of the scholars were drawn to the Institute to collaborate with Kellogg faculty fellows on specific research projects. Three fellows join the Institute in visits arranged in collaboration with the Notre Dame Law School and the Department of History.
The group includes senior scholars as well as post docs and mid-career fellows, a strong contingent studying Latin America from a range of disciplinary perspectives, and researchers investigating issues of democracy and human development in the Middle East and South Africa as well as cross-nationally.
