Fellows become immersed in the life of the Museum through behind-the-scenes tours, weekly gatherings with members of the Museum staff, and tours of the collections and exhibitions. Each spring, we offer a series of fellows’ colloquia, providing an opportunity for the scholars to present short papers on their work in progress to university colleagues, Museum staff, and the academic community.
