Call for Applications: Special Faculty Fellowships on Race and Reckoning (2020-21)

February 7, 2020 | Sophia Ramos

As part of a three-year special focus on Race and Memory at UNC, the Institute for the Arts and Humanities (IAH) invites applications for special 2020-21 Faculty Fellowships focusing on race, memory, inequality, and related areas.

The selected fellows will join the IAH Faculty Fellowship program for fall 2020 or spring 2021, receiving a semester’s leave from departmental obligations. They will spend the semester working, at least in part, on a research, scholarly, and/or creative project related to race, memory, or inequality in North Carolina or at UNC, using artistic or humanistic methods and approaches.

The IAH envisions a collaborative book publication at the end of the three-year project; fellows’ proposed projects should be amenable to contributing a chapter or other portion to such a book.

Applications are open to College of Arts & Sciences full-time faculty working in the arts, humanities, or interpretive social sciences. Applications are due February 21 and must include an endorsement from the applicant’s chair allowing for the teaching release if the application is accepted.
