Hear from Robert Weiner, SAR’s 2022-2023 Paloheimo fellow, as he reflects on his time at SAR.

To be a human being is to ask questions about ourselves, about others, and about the larger world. That’s what happens here at SAR. Scholars are given the freedom to think boldly, to think big, to zero in on the beautiful and challenging details of research projects, and then to craft narratives to tell stories that give us a sense of who we are as human beings.”
– Robert Weiner, 2022-2023 Paloheimo fellow
