Alumni

The USC Society of Fellows in the Humanities launched in 2016, inviting the first cohort of postdoctoral and faculty fellows to join our intellectual community. Since the launch, the Society of Fellows has hosted 36 emerging postdoctoral scholars with the support of 34 dedicated faculty fellows. 

Previous to the establishment of the Society of Fellows in 2016, the USC Office of the Provost supported two-year postdoctoral fellowships in the humanities. The recipients of those fellowships are listed here.
