Our Fellows

The Humanities Center supports different categories of Fellowships:

Early Career Residential Fellows

The Humanities Center hosts one to two Early Career Fellows per academic year. During their stay, Fellows work on their book manuscripts and contribute to the Center's life. During their appointment, fellows are required to reside in Pittsburgh, to present at least one lecture and one colloquium, and to participate regularly in the Humanities Center's activities.

Pitt 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.

Pitt Senior Faculty Fellows

The Humanities Center seeks to work more closely with outstanding colleagues to support their research and also to develop excellent, innovative programming that extends that research. In return for a 2-course release (one course for those on three-course contracts), the Senior Fellow will over a period of 2 years join the Advisory Committee and help plan a program of workshops, conferences, and other events related to the large issues of his/her work.

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.
