Illinois Program for Research in the Humanities (IPRH)

The Illinois Program for Research in the Humanities, supported by a grant from Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, invites applications for a Pre-Doctoral Fellow in Public Humanities for the 2020-2021 academic year. Advanced PhD students from all humanities disciplines, including the humanities-inflected social sciences, whose research and teaching lie in the area of the public humanities, are encouraged to apply.

The IPRH-Mellon Pre-Doctoral Fellowship includes a one-year residency with the Odyssey Project, a free college-credit earning program for income-eligible adults seeking access to higher education outside traditional pathways. During the fellowship year, the fellow will undertake a research project that explores themes connecting the Fellow’s field of study, the public humanities, and the Odyssey Project as an example of community-oriented public engagement.
