An Introduction to the 2018–2019 Radcliffe Institute Fellows

September 13–October 27, 2018

Johnson-Kulukundis Family Gallery
Hours: Noon–5 PM, Monday–Saturday
Byerly Hall, 8 Garden Street, Cambridge, MA 02138

Opening reception: September 12, 5:30 PM

More than 40 intriguing artifacts, images, and videos, submitted by the incoming class of Radcliffe fellows, introduce the projects they will pursue in the Institute’s vibrant multidisciplinary community of scholars, scientists, and artists in 2018–2019. For example, Stefan Helmreich presents a montage of towering waves from films, enticing viewers to share his fascination with physical oceanography. A small toy cargo ship is provided by Myrto Kalouptsidi; she explores the structure of the maritime-transportation sector and its impact on world trade. And Hernan del Valle contributes a life jacket to underscore the harsh reality—and humanitarian necessity—of search and rescue operations for migrants in the Mediterranean Sea.
