The Newhouse Center for the Humanities hosts ten to twelve resident fellows each year. Resident fellows devote themselves primarily to their own research but also participate actively in the intellectual life of the institution: developing programming, meeting at weekly luncheons and salons, sharing their work in progress with one another and with the larger Wellesley community.
Newhouse Faculty Fellows may work with the Director to design a program in which they present their research to the larger community while in residence. This could be a short lecture series, interdisciplinary panel, mini-conference, or other event.

The Newhouse Center hosts the Mary L. Cornille Distinguished Visiting Professor in the Humanities as well as the Andrew W. Mellon Visiting Artist in Residence.
Mellon Visiting Artists
The goal of the Artist in Residence Program is to integrate the arts throughout the liberal arts curriculum, to help foster and develop strong alliances and partnerships between those individual and institutions devoted to the practice of art (e.g., Davis Museum, Music and Art departments, CAMS and Theatre Studies programs) and the rest of the college.
The Newhouse Center welcomes applications from faculty in the humanities at all levels for year-long residencies.
Internal Fellows/Affiliated Faculty
Wellesley faculty members in the humanities may be part of the Newhouse Center during their sabbatical leave.
Mellon Postdoctoral Fellows
Mellon Postdoctoral Fellows are members of the Newhouse Center each year. They are selected through academic departments in consultation with the Newhouse Center.
