Mellon Post-Doctoral Fellowship

The John B. Hurford ’60 Center for the Arts and Humanities of Haverford College invites applications for a two-year Mellon Post-Doctoral Fellowship to begin Fall 2012 (see _ program/index.php for details). We seek scholars whose work focuses on affective experience within a cultural and political framework, in a theoretically textured fashion. Area of specialization is open, but might include literature, performance studies, cultural studies, history, music, film studies, media studies, history of art, sociology, philosophy, political science, psychology, anthropology, and religion. Scholars with historical and interdisciplinary concerns are encouraged to apply.

In the first year the Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow will play a central role in a seminar entitled “The Affective Turn” ( ) led by Gustavus Stadler, English Department. During each of the four semesters of his or her time at Haverford College, Fellow will teach one course at the intermediate or advanced level. Applicants should submit two brief course proposals related to their area of interest, one for a broad-based introductory course, the other for a more specialized or advanced course. In the second year, the Fellow will organize and present a spring symposium funded by the Arts and Humanities Center.

Candidates who have received the Ph.D. in 2007 at the earliest, or who have completed the requirements for the Ph.D. by the application deadline of January 31, 2012 are eligible. Please submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, two course proposals and a writing sample of no more than 25 pages, and arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent to:
