Center For Humanities Fellowship: Apply Now

All members of the junior class are invited to apply for a semester-long Student Fellowship at the Center for the Humanities during the 2009-10 academic year. Our 2009-10 theme, “War”, will entice us to think deeply about the realities and meanings of war, to examine its social and metaphoric forms as well as its visceral ones.

Four Student Fellowships are awarded by the Center’s Advisory Board for each semester. Student Fellows share an office at the Center and take part in Center activities and in the vibrant intellectual community these activities produce. Among these events are the Center’s Monday lecture series; colloquial discussions on Tuesday mornings, 10:30-12:00; Tuesday luncheons with guest lecturers; and occasional Center conferences. One course credit is awarded for a Student Fellow’s participation in the Center’s activities.
Information on how to apply and a list of next year’s faculty fellows is available online at www.wesleyan.edu/chum. Applications are due on April 1st.
