Follow the Fellows at Material Matters
Visit the Program on Facebook @winterthurprogram
Winterthur Fellows are talented, articulate, and busy. They come from diverse backgrounds, have many interests, and share a passion for the study of people and their things. They are people who see objects as a window into stories that speak to and reveal limitless aspects of the human experience. They are graduates of a wide variety of institutions from small liberal arts colleges to large research universities. Because the program recognizes that the study of material culture and the decorative arts is enhanced immeasurably by different perspectives, Fellows often enter the program from a variety of different disciplines. Whether it is art history, fine arts, math, computer science, archaeology, disability studies, anthropology, English, history, or political science, Fellows find the program richly rewarding. Some Fellows already have graduate degrees. Nearly all have worked at museums or other cultural institutions as volunteers or interns; some of them have had professional careers prior to entering the Program. For an introduction to local cultural resources available to students, please see Student Life, Beyond the Classroom.
