Welcome from the Dean

I am delighted to welcome this year’s inaugural cohort of young scholars to our Society of Fellows in the Humanities. Each fellow brings an exciting project and set of intellectual concerns to the Society. Each project is pushing forward the boundaries of our understanding of contemporary and historical cultural practices. We hope that each Fellow will benefit from the intellectual journey they will take here as members of the Society and our academic community.

Likewise we hope they will benefit from deepening their first-hand knowledge and experience of the region. I wish them all the greatest success.
