The Andrew W. Mellon Fellows Presentations

Friday, November 22, 2019

11 a.m. – 12 p.m.

The Humanities Institute engages a lively international community of students and scholars through academic programming and research fellowships. Each year, the Institute’s Andrew W. Mellon Fellows give a Research Report showing how they use the historical collections of the Mertz Library and William and Lynda Steere Herbarium as well as NYBG’s Living Collections to further their interdisciplinary studies. Their research presentations stimulate critical thinking at the intersection of science and the humanities and invite meaningful public discourse about society’s relationship with the natural environment, past, present, and future.
