Two Philosophy Students Among New Newcombe Fellows

The Institute for Citizens & Scholars has announced the recipients of its 2023-24 Charlotte W. Newcombe Doctoral Dissertation Fellowships. Two philosophy PhD students are among the winners.

They and their projects are:

  • Pedro Monque (Graduate Center, City University of New York)
    Extractivism and the Defense of Life and Territory: An Account of Latin American Environmental Thought
  • Ariana Peruzzi Sancio (University of Michigan)
    Theorizing Displacement: On Involuntary Migration, Refugeehood, and the Right to Remain

Both projects take up questions in political philosophy from a Latin American perspective.

The Newcombe Fellowships are funded by the Charlotte W. Newcombe Foundation. They support Ph.D. candidates in the humanities and social sciences whose work addresses “questions of ethical and religious values in interesting, original, or significant ways.” Fellows receive an award of $30,000 to support their final year of dissertation writing.

Mr. Monque’s particular designation is as a “Robert M. Adams-Charlotte W. Newcombe Fellow in Philosophy.” This is in honor of philosopher Robert Merrihew Adams, a co-founder of the Newcombe Fellowship and longtime chair of the Newcombe Board.

Twenty-one students received the fellowships this year. You can see the full list of them here.
