Today, the New York Public Library’s Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers announced its new class of fellows, selected from a pool of 356 applicants from 37 countries. The class of 2022 includes:
· Academics Daphne A. Brooks, Margaret Kelleher, Neil Maher, Sarah Maza, Maurice Samuels, and Erin L. Thompson;
· Nonfiction writers Rozina Ali, Raghu Karnad, Patrick Phillips, and Francesca Wade;
· Fiction writers Claire Luchette, Daniel Saldaña París, Brandon Taylor, and C Pam Zhang; and
· Poet Colin Channer.
In addition to access to the research collections and resources of the New York Public Library, the fellows receive a stipend and the use of a private office in the Cullman Center’s quarters at The New York Public Library’s landmark Stephen A. Schwarzman Building at Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street.
Martha Hodes, interim director of the Cullman Center writes: “Even under extraordinary global circumstances, we continue to thrive. From a pool of phenomenal applicants, our judges have chosen a brightly lit class of fellows, each pursuing astoundingly original work by exploring the Library’s manifold research collections in distinct ways. To all of them we offer the Cullman Center as both sanctuary and community.”
Congratulations to all the fellows.
