Davis Center Fellows for 2021-22: Revolutionary Change

It gives me great pleasure to announce the slate of Davis Center fellows for 2021-22, for the second year of our theme “Revolutionary Change.” We have received tentative permission from the Dean’s Office to have them on campus in person, and I am very much looking forward to welcoming them to Princeton. I am grateful to Jennifer Goldman, as well as to the members of the Davis Center Executive Committee, and to Divya Cherian, the Associate Director, for everything they have contributed to the selection process, which has resulted in a wonderful group of fellows.
