Congratulations to Kornel Chang, 2013-14 Academy of Arts and Sciences Fellow

Kornel Chang has been selected as an Academy of Arts and Sciences fellow for the 2013-14 academic year. Founded in 1780 by John  Adams, James Bowdoin, and other scholar-patriots, the Academy  is one of the nation's oldest  learned  societies. It promotes scholarship across a wide range of fields and, in the words  of its founders, "cultivates every art and science which may tend  to advance  the interest, honour, dignity, and happiness of a free, independent, and virtuous people."

The Visiting  Scholars  Program was established  in 2000 as part  of an Academy-wide effort to promote the work of early-career  scholars.  It provides  residential  fellowships for post­  doctoral scholars and untenured junior  faculty who are working  on projects  relating to American 
history, culture, and public policy from  the founding period  to the present. The Program oilers scholars an academic  year for research  and writing  free from  teaching and administrative duties, a collaborative work environment, and  the opportunity to interact with Academy  members.
