February 16, 2023 by CMS Communications

The Jackman Humanities Institute has awarded Shami Ghosh the Chancellor Jackman 6-month Faculty Research Fellowship in the Humanities for 2023-2024!

Awarded to tenured faculty at the University of Toronto, each Faculty Research Fellow receives a half-year leave from the normal teaching and administrative duties to undertake research (including travel) on the project proposed in their application. They are chosen for demonstrated excellence in their scholarship record and the research proposal's merit. These six-month fellows are invited to participate in the intellectual life of the JHI in the year following their fellowship, often by contributing a short talk.

A previous Chancellor Jackman Graduate Fellow in 2009, Shami Ghosh, Associate Professor with the Centre for Medieval Studies, returns to the JHI as a Faculty Research Fellow for his research project titled: The Art of Dying Well and the Origins of Capitalist Modernity.

Please join us in wishing Professor Ghosh our most unbounded congratulations!
