The Franke Visiting Fellows Program, made possible by the generosity of Richard and Barbara Franke, allows the WHC to host one fellow each year. Since 2005, the program has supported an eclectic range of visiting fellows; the residency offers time to nurture creative processes and provides opportunities for informal collaboration across the University. Fellows set their own agendas while also participating in cross-disciplinary conversations with a collective of humanities scholars at the weekly WHC Fellows Forum. During their residency, Franke Visiting Fellows deliver a lecture or presentation about their works-in-progress; these events are free and open to the public.
Please note there is no application process—Franke Visiting Fellows are selected and invited by the director of the WHC.
