Postdoctoral Fellowships

In 2017-2018, CHAT will offer several one-year postdoctoral fellowships. The fellows will be in residence at the Center and participate in a research seminar on themes in Comparative Global Humanities. We seek a junior scholar whose interdisciplinary research concerns the meaning of culture, literature, art, religion, and concepts of the human and human society in relation to colonialism, racial capitalism, trade, migration, and diaspora; we are interested in work that crosses national and disciplinary boundaries to reconceive the objects, methods, material culture and archives for research.

The area of specialization is open and may involve one or more of the following disciplines: anthropology, history, comparative literature, religion, material and visual culture, critical theory, however, the Comparative Global Humanities project is particularly interested in an interdisciplinary scholar with the ability to think broadly and experimentally across conventional geographic, thematic or temporal norms. Applications, consisting of a CV, a 2500-word research description, and three letters of recommendation, should be submitted electronically by February 1, 2017 on Interfolio.
