Sep 8, 2023

Welcome New Faculty Fall 2023

An LGBTI+ rights scholar and activist from Turkey; a historian of the horn of Africa; a renowned Indigenous Studies scholar and theorist; a political scientist, writer, and poet from Senegal. These are just some of the exciting new faculty who will be joining Gallatin and the broader NYU community this year. 

We are pleased to welcome Dilara Çalışkan, David Spielman, and Delio Vásquez as continuing full-time faculty, while Karolina Dos Santos joins Gallatin as Postdoctoral Fellow. In addition, Ibrahima Niang will be joining us as Gallatin Global Faculty in Residence. Then next spring, Gallatin will welcome Minju Bae, a sociologist of Asian-American labor, and Indigenous Studies scholar Eve Tuck, who in addition to her teaching and advising, will also direct an important new university-wide initiative on Native American and Indigenous Studies while jointly appointed in the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development.  .

Each will enrich Gallatin’s intellectual life through their innovative course offerings, cutting-edge research, and contributions to fields as wide ranging as early modern Christian Ethiopia, modern political theory, Black Studies, decolonial thought, urban sociology, social movements, and more.
