International Faculty Fellows

Fellows Rachel Bezner Kerr and Tom Pepinsky

International Faculty Fellows contribute to the Einaudi Center's intellectual life by hosting workshops in their fields of study, interacting with our area studies and thematic programs, and fostering cross-college connections. 

The fellows are nominated by the deans of their colleges or schools and selected by a faculty committee chaired by the Einaudi Center's director.

The fellowship program is funded through Global Cornell, an initiative of the Office of the Vice Provost for International Affairs.
