Stamps Professor Jim Cogswell has been named a 2016 – 2017 Faculty Fellow in the UM Institute for the Humanities.

The Institute’s Faculty Fellowship program provides faculty members with a release from teaching and service duties to pursue their research interests. Fellows are in residence at the Institute for the full academic year, becoming members of a vibrant interdisciplinary community of creators, scholars, and researchers. During his Fellowship, Jim will focus on his project entitled Cosmogonic Tattoos, a collaboration with the UM Kelsey Museum of Archaeology and the University of Michigan Museum of Art and in celebration of the University’s Bicentennial. Jim will create a set of public window installations that respond to the objects in the museums’ collections and highlight the role of these museums in our campus community.
