In 2008, the Humanities Center began a collaboration with the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies (FSI). The two institutions started a pilot program to bring high profile international scholars to Stanford for short-term residencies.
Nineteen leading scholars in the humanities and social sciences from around the world have participated in this program since its inception. Staying for one or two months at a time – a period that is feasible for a variety of academic calendars worldwide – the visitors are fully integrated into campus life: they lead sections in Stanford undergraduate and graduate classes, give lectures and presentations on their areas of expertise, carry out joint projects with Stanford colleagues, and spend time in the research libraries and archives.
