2015-16 Humanities Initiative Graduate Student Public Humanities Fellowship

in Partnership with the New York Council for the Humanities


The Humanities Initiative at New York University and the New York Council for the Humanities announce the call for applications for the 2015-16 Graduate Student Public Humanities Fellowship.

The Graduate Student Public Humanities Fellowship was developed in partnership by the Humanities Initiative at NYU and the New York Council for the Humanities to bring humanities scholarship into the public realm, to encourage emerging humanities scholars to conceive of their work in relation to the public sphere, to develop skills for doing so, and to strengthen the public humanities community in New York State. The yearlong Fellowship will provide training in the methods and approaches of public scholarship and will support the exploration of the public dimensions of the Fellow’s own scholarship in partnership with a community organization that serves public audiences.
