The Center for Humanities and Information Visiting Fellows

The Center for Humanities and Information at The Pennsylvania State University seeks at least two visiting fellows to begin in the Fall of the 2019-20 academic year. Focusing on critical and theoretical approaches to information, the Center aims to bring together a diverse, interdisciplinary group of scholars who read and think widely across fields, geographical space, and historical time. Fellowships are awarded at two levels: Senior Fellowships, appropriate for scholars employed in tenure-track positions at any level, are for one year and carry no teaching obligation; Junior (postdoctoral) Fellowships are for three years, and require fellows to teach one course per year. Support also includes research/travel funding and a benefits package. Fellows have access to research design support, as well as to grant-writing and job market workshops, career mentoring, and archival/library support and research consultation. Fellows are expected to be in residence at Penn State's University Park campus and to participate in the Center's colloquia and other events. Applicants must have a Ph.D. or equivalent scholarly credentials (obtained by July 31, 2019) and a record of peer-reviewed work. CHI welcomes co-applications from groups of two or more people working on a single project. The fellowships are also open to projects oriented towards library and information science; for such projects a master's degree in library/information science qualifies as equivalent scholarly credentials. For 2019-20, we are especially interested in applicants with expertise in critical digital humanities, feminist information studies, and other approaches that take up questions of information in relation to race, gender, nation, ability, and/or sexuality. Interested candidates must upload a letter of application, a CV (please include names/emails of three references), and a writing sample of 25-30 pages. In letters of application, candidates should address one or more of the following topics: the relation of their work to the digital humanities, broadly conceived; their interest in (and capacity to) teach or co-teach an interdisciplinary course on the history and theory of information; how their work engages with critical digital humanities or critical information studies. Review of applications will begin on February 4, 2019 and continue until the positions are filled. Visit the CHI website at http://chi.la.psu.edu.
