The Institute of Research in Humanities is proud to announce four new fellows for 2015:
- Ciprian Jeler, Groups, populations and statistics: Taking the ambiguity out of multi-level natural selection
- Christian Ferencz-Flatz, Benjamin’s Challenge to Husserl. A Critical Approach to the Phenomenology of Sensory Perception
- Kirsten Walsh, Newton’s Epistemic Triad
- Fabrizio Baldassarri, Unexpected relationships. Descartes Botanical and Chemical Sources
The four new fellows were selected following a harsh competition, from 19 excellent applications. All applications have been evaluated in a two steps process: (1) external evaluation of the applicant file and the research proposal (each application has been evaluated by two international scholars); (2) the first nine applicants that were placed on the short-list after the first stage have been selected to be discussed in a panel-committee.
All fellowships are for 6 months, with the possibility to extend them with another 2 months. They will start on 1 May 2015.
