Carey, an assistant professor in the Department of Art and the History of Art, is one of five architectural scholars to receive the 2022 research fellowship from the Society of Architectural Historians. These fellowships “aim to support research that challenges existing paradigms” and “are intended to create mentored cohorts to support the work of emerging scholars” from marginalized groups.

The IDEAS Research Fellowship includes one year of SAH membership and $1,000 in research support. In addition, each member of the year’s winning cohort is assigned a senior scholar as a mentor. Carey will be mentored by Louis P. Nelson, vice provost for academic outreach and professor of architectural history at the University of Virginia School of Architecture. “Throughout the year, the cohort will meet with each other regularly to foster relationship building and encourage peer support,” says an SAH press release.

Carey’s research “seeks to change how scholars and the public understand the link between slavery, environmental knowledge, and colonial architectural history in Mauritius and around the world.” He is at work on a book titled The Island of Bound Masters: Slavery and Construction Labor in Mauritius
