Call for applications, JHI Faculty Research Fellowships in 2019-2020
Call for Applications, Jackman Humanities Institute Faculty Research Fellowships, 2019-2020
We will be accepting applications from tenured members of the University of Toronto research faculty in the humanities and humanistic social sciences for 12-month residential and 6-month non-residential research fellowships.
12-month fellowships are selected for relevance to the year's annual theme, and in 2019-2020, the annual theme will be Strange Weather:
How might the humanities contribute to the critical discourse on energy and climate? The energy crisis is no longer simply about limited supplies but now concerns the very nature and place of energy in human life and society. Strange weather as symptom of changing climate destabilizes our trust in and certainty of our home (i.e. our planet) and provokes fantasies of control and of chaos. How can we help frame questions of environmental degradation, scientific knowledge and its popularization, especially in their relation to social equity, and societal futures?
Full information and the application form are HERE.
Applications will be accepted starting on 1 August 2018, and the deadline is 17 September 2018.
For questions and further information, please contact the Director, Professor Alison Keith.
