Society for the Humanities, Cornell University Fellowships 2009-2010
The 2009-2010 research focal theme at Cornell University's Society for the
Humanities is "Networks/Mobilities." Six to eight Fellows will be appointed.
Selected Fellows will collaborate with two Senior Scholars in Residence,
Keller Easterling (Associate Professor of Architecture, Yale University),
and Brian Massumi, Professor of Communications, University of Montreal.
The Society for the Humanities invites scholars to reflect upon the theme of
"Networks/Mobilities" in order to further understanding of historical and
contemporary flows of peoples, materials, images, and ideas across physical
and virtual boundaries. Relations of mobility and immobility, insofar as
they are being reconfigured by broad-ranging new technologies of
surveillance, detention, and legal/administrative regulation, are also
germane to the theme. The Society encourages applicants to investigate the
cultural, social, philosophical, and methodological implications of the
theme. Fellows should be working on topics related to the year's theme.
Their approach to the humanities should be broad enough to appeal to
students and scholars in several humanistic disciplines. Applicants must
have received the Ph.D. degree before January 1, 2008.
The (postmark) application deadline is October 1, 2008. For complete program
