The Bill and Carol Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry announces a new Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Poetics, funded by a Challenge Grant awarded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, for an academic year of study, teaching, and residence in the Center. Please note that Post-Doctoral Fellows, who must have the Ph.D. in hand before submission of their applications, are awarded to those who have held the Ph.D. for no more than six years before receiving the fellowship.
This Fellowship is to highlight the importance of the ongoing critical, theoretical, and creative engagements with poetry across Emory University, as well as marking the emergence of the Robert W. Woodruff Library’s Manuscripts, Archives, and Rare Books Library (MARBL) as a major center for research in poetry.
The FCHI Fellows Program is designed to offer research opportunities both to those trained in the humanities as traditionally defined and to others working with humanistic issues. Research projects must be humanistic, but applicants may hold the Ph.D. in any discipline. Especially appropriate are applicants whose research is likely to contribute to intellectual exchange among a diverse group of scholars within the disciplines of the humanities.
Because the FCHI is a residential center, its intellectual life depends on collegial interaction. Fellows will be expected to be in residence full-time during both terms of the regular academic year and to take an active part in the life of the FCHI, as well as in the intellectual life of the larger University. Since a primary purpose of the Post-Doctoral Fellows Program is to create a diverse community of scholars in residence at the Center as well as to introduce Emory University to promising work beyond its walls, currently preference will be given to applicants who are not affiliated with Emory.
Applications will be judged on the promise and significance of the proposed research project, in relation to the applicant¿s own work and that of other scholars; the intellectual distinction of the applicant¿s previous work; the applicant¿s ability to engage in collegial interactions that will substantively contribute to the FCHI and to the University; and the contributions that the applicant¿s proposed course will make to the College.
