Fung Global Fellows, Princeton

Visting Research Scholar – Fung Global Fellows Program, Princeton University

Princeton University is pleased to announce the inauguration of the Fung Global Fellows Program at the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies (PIIRS). Each year the Program will select six scholars from around the world to be in residence at Princeton for an academic year and to engage in research and discussion around a common theme. Fellowships are to be awarded to scholars employed outside the United States who are expected to return to their positions, and who have demonstrated outstanding scholarly achievement and exhibit unusual intellectual promise but who are still early in their careers.

During the academic year 2013/14, the theme for the Fung Global Fellows Program will be “Languages and Authority.” The Fellows and the accompanying seminar program will focus on how languages interact with political, social, economic, and cultural authority. Languages can be powerful tools for expressing and asserting authority. Yet they also constitute forms of authority in and of themselves (such as in the standardization and uniformity that they impose). Languages as forms of authority are also contested, and language communities have often formed a basis for resisting authority. Possible topics for this cycle of the fellows program include the ways in which languages and language use interact with globalization, empire, decolonization, nation-state formation, nationalism, language policy, language ideology, social stratification, migration, commerce and trade, social and religious movements, and the sociology of knowledge production.

NOTES:  6 openings. Employer will assist with relocation costs.
Additional Salary Information: Within the limits of its resources, it is the intent of the program to provide a salary that equals the normal salary paid to a fellow at his or her home institution. In cases where the fellow’s base salary scale is significantly below the norm, salaries may be adjusted upward to compensate.

Fellowships will be awarded on the strength of a candidate’s proposed research project, the relationship of the project to the Program’s theme, the candidate’s scholarly record, and the candidate’s ability to contribute to the intellectual life of the Program.

NEH Fellowships-Bridging Cultures

NEH Call for Fellowship Applications-Due May 1, 2012

National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowships support individuals pursuing advanced research that is of value to humanities scholars, general audiences, or both. Recipients usually produce articles, monographs, books, digital materials, archaeological site reports, translations, editions, or other scholarly resources in the humanities. Projects may be at any stage of development.

The Fellowships program welcomes projects that respond to NEH’s Bridging Cultures initiative. Such projects could focus on cultures internationally or within the United States. International projects might seek to enlarge Americans’ understanding of other places and times, as well as other perspectives and intellectual traditions. American projects might explore the great variety of cultural influences on, and myriad subcultures within, American society. These projects might also investigate how Americans have approached and attempted to surmount seemingly unbridgeable cultural divides, or examine the ideals of civility and civic discourse that have informed this quest.

All applications will be given equal consideration in accordance with the program’s evaluation criteria, whether or not they respond to the Bridging Cultures initiative.

View the NEH call for applications.
