This information is accurate as of the fellowship year indicated for each fellow.

For almost two decades, Evelyn Fox Keller’s research has focused on issues of language and science. Much of this work has concentrated on the history and philosophy of twentieth-century genetics and developmental biology.

At the Radcliffe Institute, Keller plans to extend her analysis to the study of developmental psychology. She will also help organize a major international conference on metaphor in science.
