Seventh AUK Fellow Concludes his Visit to Dartmouth College

AUK Associate Professor of Philosophy, Andrei Zavaliy, has concluded his summer fellowship program at Dartmouth, which came as part of the Dartmouth-AUK faculty fellowship program that started back in 2009. This year, Zavaliy's research grant has been sponsored by the Department of Philosophy at Dartmouth.

In an interview with the Dartmouth news team, Zavaliy said that "The endless rows of bookshelves at Baker-Berry Library are one of the main reasons why scholars from various fields seek to secure a fellowship at Dartmouth. I had immediate access to all the books and periodicals that I could conceivably need for my project." Over the course of 8 weeks, Zavaliy worked on his research on "the nature of an other-directed moral evaluation and its function in the overall structure of moral agency," among other projects.

The Dartmouth-AUK faculty fellowship program is one of many collaboration programs that link Dartmouth and AUK. Historically, Dartmouth has hosted six AUK fellows on this program in the previous years. The fellows were sponsored by the Leslie Center for the Humanities; the Thayer School of Engineering; the medical school's Institute for Quantitative Biomedical Sciences (iQBS); and the Department of English, respectively. The fellowship competition is open to AUK faculty members conducting research that can be facilitated by access to Dartmouth's libraries and museum collections, or to senior administrators pursuing professional development projects that can be guided by Dartmouth mentors.

The selection criteria include the proposal's promise of research outcomes or professional development, alignment with the Strategic Planning Goals of AUK, a project timeline, and appropriate use of Dartmouth resources.
