Grant of the Week: University of Rochester Humanities Center Fellowships

Karen Lou | Nov 18, 2019

Every week, Perspectives Daily showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship that has been posted to our free community calendar. This week we are featuring the University of Rochester Humanities Center Fellowships. 


The University of Rochester Humanities Center invites applications from tenure-track faculty (open rank) for its 2020-21 fellowships. Faculty at the rank of Assistant, Associate or Professor may apply.

Applicants' proposals must address the theme of "Translation and Transformation." Projects might address: the meanings and uses arising from the communication of a written text in a language or format other than the one it which it originated; the theory and politics of translation in its cultural and social dimensions, including issues of gender, race, ethnicity, and religion; art, film, dance, and music in relation to literary works and historical events; the popularization of science and humanistic thought; the role of the translator; the publication and marketing of translated texts; the transformative nature of digital media; the adaptation or persistence of beliefs and practices as a consequence of cultural encounters; and similar matters. 

Applicants may be in any field of humanistic study, including anthropology, art and art history, classics, English, history, modern languages and cultures, music, philosophy, or religion.

Fellows will participate in the bi-weekly Humanities Center seminar and in the Center's other workshops, conferences, and programs. They are expected to be in residence in Rochester and to play an active role in the Center's community of faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates. Fellows will present the results of their research at least once during their tenure at the Center. 


Fellows will receive a stipend up to $60,000 (commensurate with experience and need), as well as an allowance of $5,000 for research and travel related to their project.

End: December 10, 2019
