The Center for the Humanities invites applications for four Mellon Public Humanities Fellowships designed to provide advanced graduate students in the humanities with experience outside of academia. At this info session, Assistant Director of Public Humanities Aaron Fai will discuss this fellowship program along with the current cohort of fellows, and answer questions from prospective applicants. The deadline for the 2022-23 application is March 4, 2022.
By placing fellows in partner organizations around Madison including museums, hospitals, non-profits, community centers, and emerging businesses, this fellowship program facilitates the reciprocal sharing of resources and expertise, and highlights the significance of the humanities both on and off campus. We aim not only to provide graduate students the opportunity to explore diverse career paths, but also to cultivate a practice of public humanities within their academic work.
This info session will be recorded and available on our event page after the info session.
