The Stanford Humanities Center invites applications for the external faculty fellowship program. Up to 10 fellowships will be awarded to non-Stanford scholars for academic year 2022-23, among a group of nearly 50 fellows and international visitors.

Now in its 41st year, the Center invests in experiences—fellowships, workshops, lectures, and other events—that enrich research in and across the disciplines. Through a partnership with the Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis (CESTA), the Humanities Center supports not only traditional kinds of analysis and interpretation but emerging digital methods. Together, the Stanford Humanities Center and CESTA serve as the hub of an international network of fellows, visiting scholars, students, and alumni.

The residential fellowship program provides a collegial environment for scholars who are undertaking innovative projects in the humanities and humanistic social sciences. Fellows participate in the intellectual life of the Humanities Center and the broader Stanford community, sharing ideas and work in progress with a diverse cohort of scholars and benefitting from a variety of campus resources.

External fellowships are intended primarily for individuals currently teaching in or affiliated with an academic institution, but independent scholars may apply. Faculty fellowships are awarded across the spectrum of academic ranks with the aim of assembling a diverse community of scholars. Applicants who are members of traditionally under-represented groups are encouraged to apply.

The fellowship term is for the academic year (September 2022-June 2023). Applicants must have a PhD and be at least three years beyond receipt of the degree by the start of the fellowship year.

The deadline to apply is 11:59 PM PT on October 1, 2021.
