The NYU Center for the Humanities offers Research Fellowships to full-time faculty at NYU in the humanities and art disciplines, including but not limited to history, art history, music, philosophy, cultural studies, literary and language studies, religious studies, drama and performance studies, cinema studies, and gender studies. Designed as a year of intensive scholarship aided by discussion, dialogue, and regular exchange with colleagues from around the University, the Faculty Fellowship brings together a group of distinguished, established, and emerging scholars selected in a rigorous review process.
Faculty Fellows meet weekly for a luncheon seminar to present research, debate ideas, and learn from colleagues. They participate in Center events of their choosing where they often also contribute as moderators and interlocutors. During their residency, Fellows are expected to be present in New York within the University community and take on a reduced teaching schedule.
