The University of Richmond invites applications for a two-year Postdoctoral Fellowship in Public Humanities to begin August 1, 2016.  The fellowship is open to anyone with a PhD in a humanistic discipline or interdisciplinary field. We are especially interested in candidates who bring with them experience in community-based projects and/or digital projects. The post-doctoral fellow will teach three courses per year related to her/his interests and pursue her/his own research in a related humanities anchor department. The postdoctoral fellow will also join an interdisciplinary seminar of UR faculty examining the theme of “practice” in the humanities. The fellow will be appointed to a home department but may also have an opportunity for affiliation with UR’s Bonner Center for Civic Engagement and/or its Digital Scholarship Lab.
