CAH two Postdoctoral Fellowships in the Arts and Humanities will be open to recent recipients of the PhD who are in engaged in scholarly or creative pursuits in arts and humanities critical and theoretical approaches, whose research and teaching interests involve one or more of the following disciplines: Arabic Language; Arabic Literature; Archaeology; Art History; English Language; English Literature; Fine Arts (Visual Arts, Theatre, and Music); History; and Philosophy. AUB is particularly interested in innovative work that pushes disciplinary boundaries. The fellowships are intended to encourage junior and mid-career faculty to actively reimagine their disciplines and to develop innovative seminars and programs in the arts and humanities.
The three one-year AUB Faculty Fellowships will support them in the achievement of both goals by encouraging research proposals that explore new ways of conducting, presenting, and disseminating research, and of bringing it into the classroom. Faculty fellows will be expected to develop and teach one seminar during the academic year.
The dynamic integration of the fellowships with CAH’s programmatic activities will sustain the transformational and independent forum for collaborative and interdisciplinary curricular experimentation, research, and intellectual dialogue.
