Last year, Nausheen Husain, assistant professor of magazine, news and digital journalism in the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, was named the 2023-25 faculty fellow. Her project examines media coverage of Muslim people and communities and the impact of that reporting. The 2022-24 faculty fellow, Mona Bhan, associate professor of anthropology and Ford-Maxwell Professor of South Asian Studies in the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, has been investigating how artificial intelligence weapons systems transform war and surveillance and how they affect social and political vulnerabilities to violence. Seyeon Lee, the 2021-23 fellow, led a project examining whether a building planned as a women’s wellness center in the City of Syracuse’s North Side neighborhood fulfilled its intended purpose. Two other fellowships have been awarded since the Lender Center Faculty Fellowship program began.
