In May 2012, the cohort of Bilinski Fellows, recipients of dissertation fellowships offered through a $500,000

grant from the Russell J. and Dorothy S. Bilinski Fel- lowship Fund, were able to share the work they had ac- complished in a research showcase for the UC Davis community. The fellows are completing dissertations in top-ranked programs in the Division of Humanities, Arts and Cultural Studies (HArCS) and the Division of Social Sciences (DSS). Bilinski Fellows are supported in their advanced stages of doctoral study with not only a traditional dissertation-year fellowship, but also an ad- ditional summer and academic quarter of funding. The Humanities Institute coordinates programming sup- port for the fellows and organized the research show- case, which gave fellows an opportunity to present their work and also to put it in conversation with the work of their colleagues, some of whom work in vastly different disciplinary territories.

In the first panel of the day, three of the fellows from

Social Sciences presented together in a panel called “Market Failures in Economics/Health, Voting and Morals.” In the second session of the showcase, fellows from HArCS made up a panel presentation of works that share a central concern with politics, power, and performance, though the scholars approached these concerns from different points of entry. A third panel was arranged around the topics of gender, performance, and embodied categorization. The significant progress on their dissertations made evident in the fellows’ pre- sentations would not have been possible without the Bilinski Fellowship Program that allows the fellows to focus on their dissertation projects for a total of five quarters.
