Five new postdoctoral scholars have joined the Society of Fellows in the Liberal Arts this year.

The society, created in 2000 by a gift from Charter Trustee Lloyd Cotsen, is an interdisciplinary community that seeks to bring innovative approaches to scholarship and teaching at Princeton. It offers outstanding young scholars who have recently received their Ph.D. the opportunity to enhance their teaching and research over a period of three years.

The Cotsen Fellows for 2004-07 were selected from a pool of about 800 applicants in 20 disciplines. They are: Bianca Calabresi, comparative literature and humanistic studies; Dominic Johnson, Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs; Benjamin Kafka, history; Andrea Schatz, religion; and Martin Scherzinger, music.
