Submitted By: Nicholas Ealy

Thanks to a generous grant from the Cardin Fund through the A&S dean’s office, the University of Hartford’s Humanities Center can offer up to eight fellowships in Ethnic Studies for full-time faculty in the humanities for the 2022-23 academic year. Each fellowship will come with $5000, which includes both a course release and research funding. This is a reminder that applications are due Friday, Feb. 4, 2022.

Given the parameters of the Cardin Fund, fellows must be humanists in Art History (HAS) or A&S (scholars working in the fields of Literature, Writing, Modern Languages, History, Philosophy, Judaic Studies, Communication Studies, Cinema, or Art History). Funding will also be available, through the Humanities Center, for up to two humanists in Hillyer College.

Fellows must have a research agenda that focuses on an aspect of Ethnic Studies, i.e., the study of the intersection of race and culture in U.S. history and/or contemporary society with an emphasis on minoritized ethnic and racialized populations in the U.S. (Black/African American, Latinx/Hispanic, Native American/Indigenous, and/or Asian/Asian American/Pacific Islander).

In addition to a course release and research funding, fellows will be expected to present an aspect of their research in a 45-60 minute public talk as part of a Fall 2022 lecture series on Ethnic Studies organized by the Humanities Center.
