The Humanities Center supports different categories of Fellowships:
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.
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.
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, 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.
The Humanities Center invites scholars from around the world to take part in short-term visits to the Humanities Center. These 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.
The University of Pittsburgh Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences offered three postdoctoral fellowships in the humanities and two in the social sciences (in the Department of History and the Department of Economics) for the academic year 2016-2017.
