Description

For artists and humanists, these are extraordinary times: our sense of “the human” is undergoing remarkable transformations, with implications for the future of all life on the planet. But has “humanism” been part of the problem all along? How should we think differently–about the biosphere and the social world–if we are going to avoid realizing our deepest dystopian fears?

The  Penn State’s Institute for the Arts and Humanities welcomes applications for a one-year fellowship commencing July 1, 2013. Fellows will be asked to teach one class and lead a faculty/graduate student research group and/or organize a symposium. Fellows will be given office space at the Institute. It is expected that fellows will take part in the intellectual life of campus by working with faculty and students, attending symposia and events, and contributing to meetings and discussions presented by IAH.

Eligibility

Scholars and artists who have received their terminal degrees (PhDs in the humanities, MFAs in the fine and performing arts, Masters or beyond in design fields such as architecture) within the past three years are invited to apply.

Fellowship

Fellowship stipends are $42,000 plus benefits and a $2,000 research fund.
