Inclusions and Exclusions Fellows 2016-2017

Creative productions, social organization, the making of canons and the making of nations, editing, and sculpting all require inclusions and exclusions.  As boundaries blur or move, new inclusions and exclusions follow—a dynamic with ideological, political, aesthetic, and/or social implications. This year’s Northeastern Humanities Center fellows present projects that are concerned with framing devices, borders and boundaries, marginalization, fences, and gatekeeping; or:  strategies for delimiting units of meaning, models and metaphors, histories of exclusions and remediation, or issues such as literacy, citizenship, disability rights, evolutions of curricula, or particular cases for new inclusions in classical canons.  What is in and who is out evolves: from schools to country clubs, from texts to communities to nation states, from disciplines to syllabi to fashion.  Who decides, how does change happen, and with what consequences?
