Call for Applications: Society for the Humanities Fellowships, Cornell University

October 1, 2019


Applicants must have received the Ph.D. degree before January 1, 2019. Applicants must also have one or more years of teaching experience, which may include teaching as a graduate student. 


Each Society Fellow will receive $52,000 for an appointment of one academic year. 


The Society for the Humanities at Cornell University invites applications for residential fellowships from scholars whose research projects reflect on the 2020-21 theme of fabrication. Fellows spend their time in research and writing during the residential fellowship, and are required to participate in a weekly Fellows Seminar workshopping each other’s projects and participating in lively discussions on readings based on the yearly theme.

The nature of this fellowship year is social and communal—Fellows forge connections outside the classroom and the lecture hall by sharing meals following the weekly seminar and attending post-lecture receptions and other casual events throughout the year. Fellows live and work in Ithaca, NY, and are expected to be in their offices on campus frequently. Fellows teach one small seminar during their fellowship year appropriate for graduate students and advanced undergraduates.
