Eligibility & Requirements
Applications are invited from scholars of the humanities and humanistic social sciences such as anthropology, religion, sociology, philosophy, political science, history, English, art history, and comparative literature who engage and transect our seminar topic. With generous support from the Graduate Center and the Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor, successful candidates will be granted up two course releases from college teaching requirements, to be distributed across the Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 semesters at their department’s discretion, in return for a commitment to fully participate in the work of the Committee and in the weekly seminar. The basis for selection of participants will rest primarily on the relevance to the overall project of the work proposal submitted by applicants. In accord with the interdisciplinary aim of the program, selections will also be made with an eye to maintaining disciplinary diversity. Applicants must be tenured, and preference will be given to faculty in the early stages of career development (i.e. within ten years of receiving tenure).
Fellows will be expected to participate in the weekly Committee seminar as well as ongoing lectures and symposia. Committee seminars meet on Tuesday mornings, 10:30 am to 12:30 pm and it is a condition of the fellowship that fellows leave this time free in their teaching schedules.
Each application must include the following:
- Complete cover sheet (download). This must include the signature of the program Executive Officer for faculty with GSUC appointments, or of Department Chairs for non-GSUC appointments
- Abstract (150 words)
- Project description (maximum 2000 words), and 1-page bibliography. The text should be formatted using a 12-point font with numbered pages and 1-inch margins.
