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.
