Thirty-Eight Women Appointed Fellows at Bunting Institute

Thirty-eight women scholars, writers, artists, scientists, and activists have been appointed Fellows at the Bunting Institute at Radcliffe College for the 1999-2000 academic year, announced Rita Nakashima Brock, director of the Bunting Institute.

"We have, again, an extraordinary group of talented women arriving this fall," said Brock. "This year, we will be blessed with a greater number of writers of exceptional caliber. But our researchers, scholars, artists, and activists are also remarkable in the high quality of their work, their vision, and their commitment to excellence. We can't wait for them to arrive."

The new fellows with expertise in diverse subject areas, ranging from art history to astronomy will begin their yearlong appointments at the Bunting Institute in September 1999. During their fellowship year, fellows will work on independent projects and present their works-in-progress at the Bunting's colloquia series and in gallery exhibits.

The Bunting Institute is the world's first and only international and multidisciplinary think tank designed for women. By offering the opportunity to pursue independent projects for a year, the Bunting Institute fosters interdisciplinary discourse and creative and intellectual leadership.
