Wonderly Receives UC Graduate Fellowship in the Humanities

For the 2013-14 academic year, graduate student Monique Wonderly will receive three quarters of support from the Center for Ideas and Society as a UC Society for the Humanities Fellow. She also was offered, but declined, an American Association of University Women fellowship for the 2013-14 academic year, and was awarded an honorable mention in the Ford Foundation Fellowship competition. The CIS grant will allow Monique to focus on further developing her dissertation project, Toward a Theory of Emotional Attachment. In this work, she identifies “security-based attachment” as a philosophically neglected, yet rich and ubiquitous phenomenon and offers an account of its nature, functions, and ethics.
