Board of Advisors

The BASIRA Project is privileged to benefit from the generosity of advisors from a variety of disciplines and career trajectories. Board meetings are held twice each year; individual Board members also advise us on specific topics as these arise.

During the autumn of 2022, three members rotated off the BASIRA Board; we extend gratitude and appreciation for the contributions of Raymond Clemens, Hannah Jacobs, and Pamela Patton over the past two years.

At the same time, we’re deeply pleased to welcome two new Board members: Sonja Drimmer, based at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and Peter Stallybrass, emeritus professor of English at the University of Pennsylvania.
