The Society for the Humanities at Cornell University, in cooperation with the Jewish Studies Program, invites applications for a residential fellowship in Jewish Studies. The fellowship will be held for one academic year, and the Fellow will receive $50,000. The Society’s 2019-20 theme is ENERGY. Pertinence of proposed research and teaching to that theme is encouraged but not required.
Fellows include scholars and practitioners from other universities and members of the Cornell faculty released from regular duties. Fellows will collaborate with the Taylor Family Director of the Society for the Humanities, Paul Fleming, Professor of Comparative Literature and German Studies. Fellows spend their time in research and writing, participate in the weekly Fellows Seminar, and offer one course related to their research. Courses should be related to the focal theme, and appropriate for graduate students and advanced undergraduates. Fellows are encouraged to explore topics they would not normally teach and, in general, to experiment freely with both the content and the method of their courses.
The following Invited Society Scholars will each spend a week in residence, leading a seminar with the Fellows and offering a public lecture.
