CMM/WFI/ISI Fellows program

APPLICATION DEADLINE UPCOMING: FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2013

Applications are now being accepted for the 2013/2014 CMM/WFI/ISI FELLOWS PROGRAM. This unique fellowship program reflects a partnership among Villanova University’s Waterhouse Family Institute for the Study of Communication & Society, Fielding Graduate University, and the CMM Institute for Personal and Social Evolution.

Description: Communication is a generative force in the construction of social worlds. In the 21st Century these social worlds are increasingly created within a mediated landscape. These new media include a variety of digital platforms, experienced via a range of devices that offer on-demand access to content, interactive user feedback, creative participation, mobile community formation around specific content issues, and the real-time generation of new unregulated content. The new media, in fact, appear to offer it all and substantial claims have been made about their capacity to contribute to and enhance our contemporary social life.

In this year’s call for Fellows, we seek proposals that take a communication perspective and use the lens of CMM to further our understanding of lives lived in new media and, in particular, address the issue of how new media impacts our capacity to make and engage in social worlds.

Proposals that focus on any of the various types of new media are welcome. These new media can include web-hosted social sites like Facebook, mobile supported technology applications like twitter, or the range of different media hosted sites for citizen engagement and democratic participation activities.

We particularly encourage proposals that can demonstrate the practical import of a communication perspective and that enrich our understanding of the value of using CMM to understand the new media context and the types of social worlds these new media are helping to make and foster.

Application Process: Applications can be downloaded using the “Letter of Intent” form from the CMM Institute. Applications are due by Friday, November 1, 2013. Applicants will be notified the week of January 5, 2014.The three institutions will conduct a blind review process and select 3 Fellows for 2014. Each Fellow will receive a cash award of $2500.00 and will have your travel expenses to the 2014 Learning Exchange paid for.

If you are invited to become a CMM Fellow for 2014, you will be asked to present your work and engage participants in your topic area at the 2014 CMM Learning Exchange in October, 2014 (specific dates and location to be determined). The three partnering institutions will also post your work on our respective websites.

For more information about the 2013/14 CMM/WFI/ISI Fellow Awards, contact Kim Pearce.

CASBS (Stanford) fellowships

The Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University invites applications for residential fellowships during the 2014-2015 academic year. This sabbatical fellowship provides an excellent opportunity for faculty to pursue priority research while engaging in a diverse, interdisciplinary intellectual community. We ask your help in identifying and encouraging applications from communication scholars. The Leonore Annenberg and Wallis Annenberg Fellowship in Communication was established at CASBS in 2004 to fund CASBS Fellows who

  • advance scholarship in the field of communication as it has emerged since the mid-20th century, and
  • are engaged with communication scholarship as their primary field.

We appreciate your assistance in ensuring that outstanding, innovative communication scholarship is a vital part of our multidisciplinary group of Fellows.

CASBS offers a supportive, stimulating, and peaceful environment in which to work. A CASBS fellowship award is considered a career milestone for any scholar, and most recipients report that the year had a transformative effect on later work. CASBS considers applications from scholars in a wide range of disciplines and interdisciplinary areas in the social and behavioral sciences, and humanities.
