Applications Open: Human Rights and the Arts Fellowships for 2023-24
Deadline: January 5, 2023The OSUN Center for Human Rights & the Arts (CHRA) invites applications for two one-year research and teaching fellowships in human rights and the arts. Scholars and/or artists with teaching experience and a research project are eligible to apply.
The 2023–2024 fellowships cover two academic semesters, from July 1, 2023 through June 30, 2024. The positions are based at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, NY. The fellowships include a full-time salary, health benefits, and a research budget. Fellows are expected to participate in the academic life of Bard and OSUN, pursue their own research, and contribute to the CHRA’s public programs. The annual salary for this position is $65,000.
The Fellows will pursue their own research or creative practice within the interdisciplinary and critical framework of the Center, and contribute to the curriculum of the Center’s M.A. Program in Human Rights and the Arts by teaching one course each semester. The M.A. program, which launched in the 2021–22 academic year, explores the encounter between human rights and the arts as fields of academic knowledge, professional work, and artistic practice, while also offering students opportunities to explore ways of confronting the conceptual and practical perplexities of that encounter.
The goal of the fellowship program is to support outstanding thinkers and practitioners and thus to strengthen research, creation, and teaching at the intersection of human rights and the arts. The Center will award one Fellowship to a practitioner (artistic or activist/advocate), and one to a researcher or scholar, each year. We recognize that these categories are often blurry and encourage applications from those who cannot in advance specify to which group they belong.
Applicants should hold a terminal degree or equivalent training and professional accomplishment in their field, have experience teaching or lecturing at the college level, and possess a track record of successful research and scholarship, creative practice, or civic engagement and advocacy.
