Meet Columbia’s new Institute for Ideas and Imagination 2024-25 fellows

May 08, 2024
What do you get when you bring together an Oscar-nominated Portuguese director and classical pianist, a Mexican author writing a novel about anger, and a British conceptual artist working on a project about humanity’s relationship with bees? We’re about to find out.

The sixth cohort of fellows at Columbia University’s Institute for Ideas and Imagination, who will begin the one-of-a-kind yearlong residency this fall, has been announced. Meet the fellows.

A significant grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) last year helped the Institute for Ideas and Imagination continue and expand its work, as the Institute itself describes it, “to foster fresh ways of thinking about art, scholarship, and knowledge.” This built on SNF’s support for the Institute for Ideas and Imagination from its earliest days, and for Columbia’s SNF Public Humanities Initiative, which seeks to bring humanities insights to life for the public.
