BOLLI Digital Fellows

BOLLI engages talented graduate students and faculty as Digital Fellows to lead lecture series and study groups online. This teaching has enriched the BOLLI program inestimably, and from all reports, the intellectual life of the Fellows as well. Our Digital Fellows have brought us courses on classical and popular music, Jewish studies, and art history and the list grows.

BOLLI is grateful to count these talented individuals as part of its Brandeis community.
