The Humanities Center Public Humanities Fellowship Program

The Humanities Center is excited to announce positions for the 2019 Public Humanities Fellows Program, an opportunity for Pitt PhD students during the summer term, 2019 (May 13-August 9). Fellows will work in one of three local institutions (the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, and the Heinz History Center) in positions designed to benefit from their discipline-specific knowledge and their skills as creative thinkers, researchers, and writers. The program is based on the belief that advanced graduate study in the humanities has value well beyond the academy, and that graduate students will benefit from experiences outside the academy regardless of their career ambitions. The deadline for applications are due Friday, March 8, 2019.
