JHI-Mellon Fellowships in 2018-2019

The Jackman Humanities Institute, with the Centre for Humanities Research at the University of the Western Cape, is pleased to announce the JHI-Mellon Fellows for 2018-2019 at Graduate and Early Career levels.  These fellows will participate in the collaborative Mellon-funded project, Aesthetic Education: A South-North Dialogue.  The project examines how the creative arts contribute to knowledge, and is organized into five sectors: Museums and Public History; Puppetry; Literature & Decolonization; Movement, Image & Sound; and Truth & Reconciliation Commissions in Canada and South Africa.  Each fellow will be affiliated with one of these sections, and will travel to South Africa to perform research based at the Centre for Research in the Humanities.
