Foster Awarded Cullman Fellowship

May 2, 2014

The New York Public Library’s Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers has announced that Professor Hal Foster will be a member of its sixteenth class of Cullman Center Fellows. The 2014 class of Fellows will be in residence at the Cullman Center from September 2014 through May 2015. Each Fellow receives a stipend, a private office in the Cullman Center’s quarters at the New York Public Library’s Stephen A. Schwarzman Building at Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street, and full access to the research collections and online resources there, as well as the assistance of the library’s curatorial and reference staff. Foster’s project at the Center will focus on modernism in 20th-century art.

Other members of the 2014 class include historians Deborah Coen and Steven Pincus; nonfiction writers Jon Lee Anderson and Megan Marshall; and novelists Ayana Mathis, Jordi Puntí, and Justin Torres. The Cullman Center fosters an atmosphere of creative and scholarly collaboration, both within the Library and in the larger cultural environment of New York, through informal lunchtime talks and public “Conversations from the Cullman Center,” a series of evening programs featuring Cullman Center alumni.
