Welcome to the New Fellows!


We're delighted to welcome three remarkable scholars to the Society:

Murad Idris received his PhD in Political Science from the University of Pennsylvania in 2012. His current research focuses on issues of war and peace in ancient, modern, and contemporary thought, in both Euro-American and Islamic traditions.

Maggie Cao is a scholar of American art and visual culture. She received her doctorate in History of Art and Architecture from Harvard University in 2014. Her current work focuses on the artistic negotiation of scientific and economic paradigm shifts during the long nineteenth century.

Dan-el Padilla Peralta studies the history of the Roman Republic and Empire, with a particular focus on trends in religious practice. He received his PhD in Classics from Stanford University in 2014 and holds previous degrees from Princeton and Oxford.

We look forward to the research our three new Fellows will do, to the talks they will present, and to the conferences they will help organize.
