Faculty Fellowships

Application Deadline is February 28, 2020, 12:00pm
In 2020-2021, the Center will offer research awards to Arts, Humanities, or Social Science tenure track and tenured faculty, including professors of the practice, in the School of Arts and Sciences at Tufts who are engaged in humanistic scholarship or artistic creation or criticism. The Tufts Faculty Fellows will receive one or two course releases and office space throughout the academic year. Fellows will present their work in a seminar, participate in the research seminar on themes in Comparative Global Humanities, and participate in other activities of the Center. We particularly invite applications from faculty whose creative or scholarly work is interdisciplinary, interdepartmental, and/or fosters cross-campus dialogue.

Applications, consisting of a CV, a 1500-word research proposal, and a letter of support from the applicant’s department or program chair, should be submitted by February 28, 2020 to Courtney McDermott at humanities@tufts.edu.
