Visiting Humanities Fellow Position
The DePaul University Humanities Center (DHC) is inviting applications for Visiting Fellows for 2020-2021.
All applicants must have a Ph.D. or equivalent, and research projects must be in the humanities. International applications will be considered. Fellowships may run for nine months (from September 2020 to June 2021) or six months (from January 2021 to June 2021). During their tenure, Visiting Fellows are required to make an intellectual contribution to the DePaul community and participate in the programming and activities of the DHC and the university.
We are especially interested in applications that involve a project around the theme of “Age,” broadly construed. All applications regardless of topic will be considered, but preference will be given to applicants who draw connections between their proposed project and the 2020-21 DHC theme, “Age.” NB: The DHC will be hosting events that touch on such topics as the analog age and the era of cassette tapes; child liberation; birth & infancy; the juvenile justice system; the gendering of age; childhood, games, and gaming; and sexuality and privacy in the golden years. Ultimately, we are interested in interdisciplinary, creative, innovative projects that take up the theme of “Age.”
The DHC Visiting Fellow program is generally a sabbatical/leave-based position, as there is no large stipend associated with this position. However, apart from the mutual benefits of being engaged with our vibrant local intellectual community in the heart of Lincoln Park in Chicago, Visiting Fellows will be given an office in the Center with computer, staff support, library privileges, and an honorarium of up to $3,000 ($1,000 per quarter) to support the public presentation of Fellows’ work (with at least one public lecture supported and expected of all Visiting Fellows) and for participation in other DHC programming.
Applications are due by Friday, January 24, 2020. An application contains (1) a cover letter including contact and biographical information about the applicant and the length of Fellowship requested; (2) a current CV; (3) a brief description (not more than 1,500 words) of the research project stating the objectives, significance, and originality of the project in a manner clear to a nonspecialist; and (4) one confidential letter of reference (which may be sent under separate cover).
