The Hannah Arendt Center for Politics and Humanities at Bard College announces one post-doctoral fellowship for the 2021-2022 academic year. The fellowship runs from August 29th, 2021 through May 31, 2022, and includes compensation of $30,000 as well as medical benefits. The fellowship is for one year; renewable for a second year.
In residence at the Arendt Center, the fellow will pursue his or her independent research at the Center, which includes Hannah Arendt’s personal library. The fellow will have access to Arendt’s Digital Archive through a relationship with the Arendt Center in New York City. In addition, the fellow will have the opportunity to participate in seminars, conferences, lectures, colloquia, and workshops organized by the Center.
The fellow will hold the title of the Klemens von Klemperer Post-Doctoral Fellow and teach one (1) course each semester at Bard College’s Annandale campus. Additionally, the fellow will teach one (1) course during one semester [either Fall or Spring] in their field of expertise at one of Bard College’s satellite campuses in a NY State Correctional Facility. The Bard Prison Initiative (BPI) enrolls 300 men and women across six prisons in Bard College degree programs. BPI's rigorous and ambitious courses represent the full diversity of the liberal arts including history, literature, social thought, mathematics and the political studies. For more information about BPI, go to: https://bpi.bard.edu/
Bard College’s main campus is in Annandale-on-Hudson, N.Y., with 1,900 undergraduate students; the College also includes multiple graduate programs. The 1,000-acre campus sits along the Hudson River and offers the Fisher Performing Arts Center, and Hessel Museum of Art, and is the home of the Bard Prison Initiative, the largest college-degree-granting prison education program in the U.S. The Bard Network also includes several Bard High School Early Colleges across the country as well as international campuses and partnerships. The Bard Network is complex and demonstrates Bard’s priorities well in addition to the College’s emphasis on civic engagement.
Bard College is a private institution working in the public interest. Bard faculty and staff lead their students by example, building upon the existing network of boundary-breaking programs focused on rethinking who can and should be included in a liberal arts education. The successful candidate will excel at working in a community that is broadly diverse with regard to race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, and religion.
The fellow should have a Ph.D. in political theory, philosophy, or a related field in the humanities, and his or her work should intersect meaningfully with Hannah Arendt’s thinking.
