Susan Koshy will work with the OVCRI and IHSI to develop innovative research initiatives involving humanists, social scientists, and artists.

Susan Koshy (Asian American Studies/English), has been named Faculty Fellow (Humanities, Arts, and Related Fields) in the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Innovation (OVCRI) and the Interdisciplinary Health Sciences Institute (IHSI). The Fellows Program supports faculty members interested in developing innovative research initiatives of humanists, artists, and interpretive social scientists, particularly as they relate to interdisciplinary, public-facing, and/or collaborative research on this campus and beyond. As her first project, she will work with OVCRI and IHSI on research initiatives that advance humanistic approaches to science and technology, with a particular attention to issues of race, gender, sexual and economic inequality. Her eight years as Director of the Unit for Criticism building research collaborations bringing together humanists, social scientists, artists, scientists, and activists will inform this initiative.
