The DePaul University Humanities Center (DHC) is inviting applications for Visiting Fellows for 2019-2020.

We are especially interested in applications that involve a project around the theme of “Scale,” broadly construed. All applications regardless of topic will be considered, but preference will be given to applicants that draw connections between their proposed project and the 2019-20 DHC theme, “Scale.” NB: The DHC will be hosting events that touch on such topics as, e.g., literary narratives of scale, works of art of various scales, the city versus the town, size and scale in botany, weight-based bias, the scales of justice, encounters with things that are “not to scale,” etc. We are interested, that is, in interdisciplinary, creative, innovative projects that take up the topic.

All applicants must have a Ph.D., and research projects must be in the humanities. International applications will be considered. Fellowships may run for nine months (from September 2019 to June 2020) or six months (from January 2020 to June 2020). During their tenure, Visiting Fellows are required to make an intellectual contribution to the DePaul community and participate in the programming and activities of the DHC and the university.

The DHC Visiting Fellow program is generally a sabbatical/leave-based position, as there is no large stipend associated with this position. However, apart from the mutual benefits of being engaged with our vibrant local intellectual community in the heart of Lincoln Park in Chicago, Visiting Fellows will be given an office in the Center with computer, staff support, library privileges, and an honorarium of up to $3,000 ($1,000 per quarter) to support the public presentation of Fellows’ work (with at least one public lecture supported and expected of all Visiting Fellows) and for participation in other DHC programming.
