Our Fellows

The Humanities Center supports different categories of Fellowships:

Faculty Fellows

The Humanities Center hosts University of Pittsburgh faculty to take part in Center activities as an Internal Faculty Fellow. These fellows lead a colloquium in the Humanities Center and we enlist two faculty members, preferably coming from different fields of study, to deliver responses during the session--these respondents may come from Pitt or from other local institutions.

Graduate Fellows

The Humanities Center also offers summer research fellowships for graduate students working at the University of Pittsburgh.These graduate fellows then participate in the intellectual life of the Center in the following year.They lead a colloquium in the Humanities Center, and we work with each fellow to develop a format for sharing their work in the most generative way.

Transdisciplinary Fellows

One of the core goals of the Humanities Center is to foment work between and among disciplines in the humanities and adjacent fields and to that end we sponsor a transdisciplinary fellowship program that supports faculty and helps them to seed discussions on topics that go beyond individual disciplines. And in this year's cohort of transdisciplinary fellows, these scholars are opening discussions on a variety of timely issues.

Visiting Short-Term Fellows

The Humanities Center invites scholars from around the world to take part in short-term visits to the Humanities Center. These visiting short-term fellows typically present one public lecture, one round-table colloquium discussion, and one student-focused event. Additionally, each spring term, the week after commencement, we bring one scholar to campus to host our week long Faculty Seminar.
