10 Postdoctoral Fellowships, Society of Fellows in the Liberal Arts, Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech), Shenzhen, China. Deadline: February 15, 2021.
The Society of Fellows in the Liberal Arts at Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) invites applications for Junior Fellowships in the social sciences and humanities. These postdoctoral fellowships aim at fostering the academic careers of scholars who have recently received their Ph.D. degrees by providing a competitive package and membership in an interdisciplinary scholarly community.
The Society will select a cohort of up to ten Junior Fellows for the class of 2021. Those selected will be offered a two-year postdoctoral appointment beginning in September 2021. Fellowships are awarded to recent Ph.D. recipients in the humanities and social sciences who have demonstrated intellectual excellence and the potential for outstanding academic achievement.
Junior Fellows are expected to devote their time to productive scholarship, focusing on publishing their dissertation research, undertaking new research in accordance with their proposed project, and engaging in other original work that will further their academic careers. The Society aims to foster teaching excellence in the humanities and social sciences, and the fellowships carry with them a teaching responsibility of four 2-credit courses over the two-year period, one course per term.
Junior Fellows are required to be in residence during the fall and spring academic terms, and to attend all of the Society’s activities. They are also encouraged to regularly participate in events (such as seminars, workshops, and lectures) organized by the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, and other departments and programs at the University. Junior Fellows are appointed for two years, and no extensions are granted.
Postdoctoral Fellowships in connection with the Center’s Andrew W. Mellon Foundation seminar on the topic of migration and the humanities for 2021-22, Mahindra Humanities Center, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, USA. Deadline: November 6, 2020.
Migration plays as critical a role in the moral imagination of the humanities as it does in shaping the activist vision of humanitarianism and human rights. Too often, the humanities are summoned merely as witnesses whose primary aesthetic and moral values lie in their illustrative powers of empathy and evocation. Yet the intellectual formation of the humanities—their very conception of the nature of meaning, knowledge, and morals—is deeply resonant with the displacement of values and the revision of norms that shape narratives of migrant lives.
MHC welcomes applications from scholars in all fields whose work innovatively engages with migration and the humanities. In addition to pursuing their own research projects, fellows will be core participants in the bi-weekly seminar meetings for both academic terms of the fellowship. Other participants will include faculty and graduate students from Harvard and other universities in the region, and occasional visiting speakers.
