We recently announced the opening of the competition for the 2022-23 Fellowships. They give an opportunity for Columbia faculty and researchers to spend a semester or a year in Paris, pursuing their own work alongside journalists, filmmakers, composers, and artists from around the world.
The Institute’s program of events is underway, many of them in partnership with Columbia Global Centers | Paris, with whom we share a home at Reid Hall in Montparnasse. The graduate work-in-progress mentoring workshops, which we began last year to create an intellectual community for Columbia ABDs abroad, will continue in the coming months, bringing together students, faculty, and our Fellows.
The Institute provides a beautiful setting for Columbia faculty and graduate students to meet and organize workshops, conferences, and other events. More information on our activities is available on our website.
Mark Mazower is the director of the Institute for Ideas and Imagination and the Ira D. Wallach Professor of History at Columbia University.
(New York Events are only open to members of the Columbia community)
The Institute hosts between 14 and 16 residential fellows annually. Asserting the ongoing power of the imagination in the formation and communication of ideas, it aims to foster new synergies between scholars and creative artists to their mutual benefit. The Institute also welcomes visiting scholars and faculty who wish to come for shorter stays in order to carry out their research, organize workshops and conferences, or curate performances and exhibitions.
