April 2022: Meet our newest fellows
News from GoTo, Joro, Ripio, Skillshare, Unravel Carbon, and Xendit; John's interview with e27
This Month's Spotlight
This month, we concluded the Spring 2022 cohort of our Amasia Fellows program, our flagship research and writing program for undergraduates. Formalized in 2019, the program now has 23 alumni from nine universities. This semester’s fellows were Emily Wang and Nora Shiho Burke from Columbia and Caroline Culmo from Penn.
The fellows co-wrote shortform and longform pieces, helped prep Ramanan’s book, In Our Hands, for launch this spring, and did background research for our interview series. The first of the longform pieces, on war and the environment, can be read on the Amasia blog.
