National Call for Applications, Visiting Fellowships 2019-2020

The deadline for applications is January 28, 2019.

The James Weldon Johnson Institute of Emory University invites applications for its Visiting Fellows Program. Supported by a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Johnson Institute offers five fellowships per year.

  • Visiting Fellowships for Post-Doctoral and Advanced Scholars: Three (3) fellowships for both junior and senior scholars and their career equivalents. Candidates must hold a Ph.D. by the start of the fellowship period in August 2019. Fellows will each teach one course in the spring semester. 
  • Visiting Fellowships for Pre-Doctoral Scholars: Two (2) fellowships for doctoral dissertation completion. Dissertation Fellows are not required to teach courses.

We welcome applications from scholars in the humanities. We are interested in research projects across the spectrum of the humanities that examine the origins, evolution, impact and legacy of race, difference, and the modern quest for civil and human rights. We also support research projects that examine race and ethnicity and its points of intersection with other identities and movements addressing differences along gender, class, religious, or sexual lines. Visiting Fellows will be in residence at Emory for the academic year 2019-2020. Visit the website at www.jwji.emory.edu for a complete program description.
