Creativity and Promise: Selected MacArthur Fellows

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Join us in getting to know some very interesting people - MacArthur Fellowship award winners. Each winner is chosen by the MacArthur Foundation as a result of demonstrating exceptional creativity in their work and manifesting promise for important future advances. Each week our study group will explore the life and work of two recipients of these $625,000 unrestricted awards. Our choices are drawn from a variety of professions and fields. The awards have generated great public interest so there is a wealth of information about the individuals and their work: biographies, interviews, recorded lectures, and follow-up discussions. The Foundation’s website,, continues to update information on past fellows. Members will present and lead the discussions with the help and support of the coordinators. No text is required. The reading materials and discussion topics will be distributed weekly and posted on
