The Fellows Program at the Institute for Humanities Research provides faculty funding for research related to the annual theme.
Fellows may apply as individuals or as a team to engage in a year of research, to share their research with the academic community and to produce a strong application for an external grant.
Successful proposals for the Fellows Program will outline a rich scholarly project rooted in the humanities that has clear and feasible outcomes for the fellowship year and that has the potential to be funded by outside agencies.
Fellowships provide funds toward one course buyout (in the spring semester) for each faculty member as well as research funds of $2500 per faculty member.
2020-21 Fellowship Theme: Recovering the Human(e) in an Age of Dehumanization
What does it mean to be human and humane in an age that undermines our humanity? Disruptions are manifest in technological, medical, political, economic, social, racialized, gendered and ecological areas of public discourse.
Where are the methods, models and ways for being human and humane in the world together? How do the humanities recover the human(e)?
