The Newhouse Center for the Humanities hosts ten to twelve resident fellows each year. Resident fellows devote themselves primarily to their own research but also participate actively in the intellectual life of the institution: developing programming, meeting at weekly luncheons and salons, sharing their work in progress with one another and with the larger Wellesley community.
The Newhouse hosts the Mary L. Cornille Distinguished Visiting Professor in the Humanities as well as the Newhouse Visiting Professor in Creative Writing.
The Newhouse welcomes applications from faculty in the humanities at all levels for year-long residencies.
