The Kaplan Institute for the Humanities at Northwestern University invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in the Environmental Humanities, to run from September 1, 2019 through August 31, 2020.
Applications are welcome from scholars who study the environment from any humanities perspective (focusing on, for instance, ecological approaches to literature, gender, religion, politics, philosophy, the arts, and/or race; animal studies; environmental justice, ethics and sustainability; and/or environmental history). Co-appointed to the Kaplan Institute and a humanistic department or program in Northwestern’s Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences, the fellow will teach two undergraduate courses per year.
Candidates must complete all Ph.D. requirements before August 31, 2019, and be no more than four (4) years past their Ph.D. at the time of the fellowship start date. Fellows should also not have started a tenure track position at the time of application.
The fellow will give one public lecture per year and be expected to participate in events at the Kaplan Institute. This position is a two-year, full-time fellowship with benefits.
