The University of Connecticut Humanities Institute invites applications for residential fellowships. Fellowships offers a stipend, office, and all the benefits of a Research I university. Just as important, we offer community, space, and time for scholars to write, argue, engage, and create.
Year-long fellowships are open to humanities professors, independent scholars, writers, museum and library professionals. Take advantage of the research facilities, archives and special collections, and museums with ideal proximity to Hartford, Boston, and New York City.
Application materials must be received by February 1, 2019.
The Center for the Humanities at the University of New Hampshire has announced a series of Mellon-funded summer institutes in public humanities.
The program will pay a modest stipend, travel, meals, and lodging costs for all participants. Faculty participants will make three commitments beyond their attendance. They will agree to: a) plan and initiate an engaged project in the following academic year (for which they will be eligible to apply to the institute for a $5,000 start-up award); b) commit to using the summer’s institute as a basis for initiating curricular or institutional change; and c) submit a written report before the following year’s institute.
More information about applications will be available in mid-January.
The University of New Hampshire, a founding member of NEHC, is the recipient of a $724,000 grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The Center for Humanities at UNH will utilize these funds to host summer institutes dedicated to training humanists for work in the public realm and community engagement.
In the coming months, Amherst College, the University of Connecticut, and Wellesley College will be hosting speakers as part of the event series Time's Up: What Now?
The first speaker will be Kate Manne, Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Cornell University and author of Down Girl: The Logic of Misogyny. Professor Manne will be visiting the three campuses for a variety of events from October 29-November 2.
More information about events and future speakers will be added at a later date.
