The Princeton Society of Fellows in the Liberal Arts, a group of postdoctoral and faculty fellows, is dedicated to promoting innovative interdisciplinary approaches to scholarship and teaching. Each year the Society chooses a new cohort of Cotsen Fellows, recent recipients of the Ph.D. in the humanities and selected social and natural sciences, who are appointed for three-year terms to pursue research and to teach half-time in a home department or program at the University. The Cotsen fellowships were established in 1999 through the generosity of Charter Trustee Lloyd E. Cotsen, an alumnus who has long been a devoted supporter of Princeton.
The Cotsen Fellows are joined by Princeton faculty members who participate fully in the Society as Faculty Fellows. Meeting regularly for informal and formal discussion, seminars, lectures, and reading groups, the fellows pursue new knowledge within and across disciplines and foster intellectual exchange among the University's undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty. With other programs of the Andlinger Center for the Humanities at Princeton, the Society is based in the Joseph Henry House, a historic building at the center of campus named after its designer, the eminent scientist and Princeton professor, Joseph Henry (1797-1878). Susan Stewart, Avalon Foundation University Professor in the Humanities, serves as the Society's Director; Mary J. Harper is Executive Director.
