Postdoctoral Fellow in Society for the Humanities

Cornell University

United States

Postdoctoral Fellows

The Society for the Humanities at Cornell University invites applications for residential fellowships from scholars whose research projects reflect on the 2021-22 theme of AFTERLIVES. Up to six Fellows will be appointed. The fellowships are held for one academic year. Each Society Fellow will receive $55,000.

Fellows include scholars and practitioners from other universities and members of the Cornell faculty released from regular duties. Fellows at the Society for the Humanities are considered “residential,” and will collaborate with one another and the Taylor Family Director of the Society for the Humanities, Paul Fleming, Professor of Comparative Literature and German Studies. Fellows spend their time in research and writing during the residential fellowship, and are required to participate in a weekly Fellows Seminar workshopping each other’s projects and participating in lively discussions on readings based on the yearly theme.

The nature of this fellowship year is social and communal—Fellows forge connections outside the classroom and the lecture hall by sharing meals following weekly seminars and attending post-lecture receptions and other casual events throughout the year. Fellows live and work in Ithaca, NY and are expected to be in their offices on campus frequently to meet with students or each other. All applicants for Society Fellowships should share in this commitment to creating a supportive and intellectually stimulating community. 

Fellows teach one course during their fellowship year appropriate for graduate students and advanced undergraduates, and should feel free to experiment with both the content and the method of their courses. Though courses are designed to fit the focal theme, there are no additional restrictions on what or how the course should be taught. Fellows are encouraged to explore topics they would not normally teach that might provide new directions for their own research projects.
