IASH offers up to 10 faculty fellowships a year (5 a semester). An IASH Faculty Fellowship releases its recipient from one course during the fellowship semester. All IASH fellowships are residential and involve a commitment to attend a Fellows Seminar that is open to the public and to present one's work in the seminar. The seminar meets on Wednesdays, noon to 1:30pm.
The application deadline is Friday, November 01, 2019.

IASH Public Humanities: Call for Proposals

The Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities (IASH) is looking for faculty proposals for workshops, symposia, seed research, or other projects in the Public Humanities broadly understood to include all areas of humanistic study. Our preference is for multi-year (up to 3 years) proposals, and we encourage the projects that involve graduate or undergraduate students. We can fund several such proposals at $3000 to $5000 per year. Proposals should include (a) a project title, (b) names, affiliations, and contact information for the proposing faculty, (c) a brief (350-500 words) description of the project and expected activities, and (d) a timeline.

The proposals should be emailed to by Friday, October 18, 2019. Announcements will be made by the first week in November.
