*I think it’ll be great if someone researching in areas relating to SE Asia gets this prestigious fellowship!
The Whitney Humanities Center at Yale University announces “Thinking the Humanities in the 21st Century,” an Andrew W. Mellon Program of Mid-Career Research Fellowships.
The Fellowship is directed toward faculty at four-year liberal arts colleges who have received tenure within the last five years. It will welcome three outstanding scholars in each of the academic years 2015–2018 to the Whitney Humanities Center, where they will pursue research programs in any area of the humanities and related fields and enter into intellectual exchanges with faculty, fellows, and other visitors to the Center.
Fellows will remain in residence during the fall and spring semesters of a full academic year, taking part in the Whitney Fellows’ weekly gatherings. Mellon Fellows will also offer two public presentations on topics of their choosing and participate in classroom discussions relating to their interests, though there are no formal teaching duties attached to the fellowship award.
Fellows will receive half of their salaries as well as travel/ relocation allowances of up to $2500; it is anticipated that they will bring the other half of their salaries from their home institutions in the form of sabbatical support.
Proposals will be judged according to their creativity, breadth of implication, feasibility, and engagement in today’s thinking and rethinking of humanistic research and teaching.
How to apply
Applications will be considered in two stages. For the initial application, please submit one hard copy of the cover sheet (.DOC or .PDF), a brief curriculum vitae (two-page maximum), and a statement of the proposed research project (500 words maximum) by October 31, 2014.
