Anschutz Distinguished Fellow, 2018-2019

The Anschutz Distinguished Fellowship, created through an endowment by the Anschutz family, will be awarded in the academic year 2018-19 to a writer, critic, journalist, musician, artist, or other contributor to the arts, letters, public service, or commerce. The fellowship holder need not be an academic scholar. However, the selection committee will place great weight on indicia of the candidate’s teaching ability as well as the rigor, innovation, and interdisciplinary emphasis of the proposed seminar course. The Anschutz Fellow is expected to teach one interdisciplinary undergraduate seminar course for the American Studies Program either in the fall or the spring semester. The seminar will be composed of no more than 15 students, and it will meet for three hours weekly over a 12 week teaching semester. The Fellow will also deliver one public lecture to the University. The Fellow will enjoy full access to Firestone Library and to a wide range of activities throughout the University. A computer-equipped office on campus will be provided for the semester.

A Fellow who elects to reside on campus will receive a salary of $90,000, plus benefits. A Fellow who elects to commute from elsewhere will receive $60,000, plus benefits.

To apply: An applicant should submit a curriculum vita, a preliminary syllabus, and a short statement describing her or his proposed seminar and public lecture by midnight, e.s.t. on December 1, 2017. A short list of finalists will be asked to submit further materials.  The application will require the submission of names and contact information for three references; however we will request letters only for the finalists.
