Deadline: September 28, 2012
The Institute for the Arts and Humanities offers UNC-Chapel Hill faculty members a unique opportunity: a semester-long, on-campus fellowship to work on projects for publication, exhibition, composition or performance. The fellowship centers on a weekly 3-hour seminar at Hyde Hall where Fellows exchange ideas with eight to twelve peers from various disciplines over a shared meal. Eligible faculty may apply for either the fall or spring semester for one of the two available fellowships:
IAH Faculty Fellowships:
- Projects - Proposals should be related in some vital way to the arts, humanities or qualitative social sciences. Joint proposals from two faculty members are also acceptable.
- Eligibility - We encourage applications from faculty at all ranks in tenure-track or tenured positions. Tenured or tenure-track faculty may apply as early as their second year at UNC-Chapel Hill. In each group of Fellows we seek a blend of ranks and disciplines. We may also take into account applicants’ leaves of absence for research during the three years prior to the IAH fellowship. Applicants require endorsement from their department chairs.
Faculty Arts Fellowships:
- Projects - Proposals should advance research and/or engage in creative endeavors in the arts and arts-related fields. Proposals should also include plans to incorporate artistic performances on the Carolina campus or the resources of the Ackland Art Museum into the faculty member’s courses.
- Eligibility - The Fellowship is open to all tenure-track and fixed-term faculty at UNC-Chapel Hill. Special consideration will be given to junior faculty members and specifically to projects that incorporate interdisciplinary collaboration. Applicants require endorsement from their department chairs.
Digital Innovation Lab/IAH Fellowships:
- Projects - Proposals should envision a significant contribution to research, engaged scholarship, and/or pedagogy through digital humanities approaches. Proposals should also include plans to incorporate the fellowship experience into the faculty member's courses in the year following the fellowship.
- Eligibility - The Fellowship is open to all tenure-track or fixed term faculty at all ranks. Two faculty members may apply to work jointly as DIL/IAH fellows on the same project. Applicants require endorsement from their department chair
Fellows must attend weekly seminar meetings during their semester leave. Faculty who have previously held any fellowship that provides a semester’s leave at the IAH may apply again, but only in the fifth year after their IAH fellowships.
Applications will be completed online and are available at: http://iah.unc.edu/programs/fellowships/apply.
The IAH will host a two-part Grants Mentoring Workshop, set for September 5 and September 12, during which applicants may share their proposal and receive feedback. Because IAH Fellowships have become increasingly competitive, we strongly encourage applicants to participate in the workshop. RSVP to Coordinator for Faculty Programs Jeanine Simmons at 843-5464 or firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, August 29. Spaces are limited.
