Quadrant, a joint initiative of the University of Minnesota Press and the
Institute for Advanced Study, invites scholars pursuing interdisciplinary
work to apply for one of four semester-long residential fellowships to be
held in academic year 2009-2010 at the University of Minnesota. Applications
must be postmarked by November 1, 2008. Please note that the fellowship may
not be used for work toward a degree and is not open to faculty or staff at
the University of Minnesota.

Fellows will receive a stipend of up to $30,000, including the cost of
benefits, for one semester. During the tenure of their fellowship, they will
be in residence at the Institute for Advanced Study in Minneapolis and will
participate in at least one of Quadrant's faculty-led research and
publishing collaboratives: Design, Architecture, and Culture; Environment,
Culture, and Sustainability; Global Cultures; and Health and Society.
Fellows will either present a chapter-in-progress in a workshop setting with
their Group or give a public talk. Also while they are in residence, Fellows
will be able to work directly with University of Minnesota Press editors in
developing their work. They may submit work completed while on the
fellowship to the University of Minnesota Press for publication through its
standard peer review and faculty committee approval process.

Please direct any questions regarding the fellowship to Anne Carter at
