Public Voices Fellowship
The Clayman Institute for Gender Research piloted a short version of our Public Voices fellowship program in October 2011. Successes spread across platforms: op-eds, grants, books, and radio. Amalia Kessler’s New York Times op-ed on arbitration led to radio interviews; Jenna Davis’ CNN op-ed on global sanitation led to an invitation to speak at the World Health Organization and testify at a U.S. Senate Appropriations Subcommittee. Three scholars wrote op-eds on the Occupy movement in The Boston Review that they subsequently expanded and published as part of an anthology by MIT Press. One scholar cited our Public Voices Fellowship convenings as directly aiding her in securing a $1.4 million grant for her research.
