APPLICATION DEADLINE: FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 2015

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.

Jacques Derrida was the most brilliant and influential philosopher of media of our time. He had an abiding engagement with the temporalities, spatialities and inscriptions of the mediatic from his book on Husserl’s phonology, through his subsequent development of the following themes and concepts that increasingly re-orient our understanding of semiosis, communication/excommunication and interfacing/defacing: arche-writing, the trace, iterability, parricidal mimesis, phonocentrism, the dangerous supplement, the pharmacology of writing, dissemination, the play of repetition, Freud’s magic writing pad, otiology, on touching, atomic missives and missiles, the shibboleth, inspectacularity, echography, secrecy, the alibi the maddened subjectile, the ethnography of paper, spectrality, the pathogenic archive, the event, and autoimmunity among many others.
