The Orthodox Christian Studies Center of Fordham University invites applications for its Orthodox Christian Studies NEH Dissertation Completion Fellowship, its Orthodox Christian Studies NEH Faculty Fellowship, and its new Research Fellowship in Coptic Orthodox Studies (open to faculty and advanced PhD students) for the 2020-2021 academic year (September 1, 2020-August 31, 2021). The Center actively desires the most compelling, exciting, and rigorous academic projects to join its efforts in fostering Orthodox Christian Studies as a field of scholarly inquiry in its own right.
NEH Dissertation Completion Fellowship
The Orthodox Christian Studies NEH Dissertation Completion Fellowship, supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, is intended to enable an advanced PhD student to devote full-time work to the final year of dissertation research and writing. The Fellow must be prepared to complete her or his dissertation within the period of the Fellowship.
Applications are welcomed for projects in any methodological discipline of the humanities (e.g., art history, history, philosophy, or theology), or for projects emphasizing an interdisciplinary approach including but not limited to those of gender studies, postcolonial studies, or postmodern studies as well as other contemporary theoretical methods of inquiry. Proposals are encouraged for projects of any chronological period or geographical region so long as the primary subject of investigation relates to a critical examination of some aspect of the history, thought, or culture of Orthodox Christianity.
The recipient of the Fellowship will receive a stipend of $30,000 (which includes the costs incurred for the residency requirement) and will be expected to be absolved of any service or teaching responsibilities at his or her home institution. The Fellow will not be required to reside full-time in New York City, but she or he will be required to spend two weeks in residence in New York City over the course of the Fellowship year, with one week in the fall and one week in the spring. When in residency, the Fellow will be expected to participate in occasional Center activities and will be offered the opportunity to deliver a public lecture related to his or her research. The recipient of the Fellowship, by policy of Fordham University, must provide proof of health insurance. If health insurance is needed, the Fellow may buy in to the Fordham University health plan at a discounted rate.
