The Center for the Humanities at Tufts offers three research fellowships each academic year to faculty in the School of Arts and Sciences at Tufts who are engaged in humanistic scholarship or artistic creation or criticism. Tenured faculty, tenure track faculty, and professors of the practice are eligible to apply. Faculty Fellows will be offered work space at the Center for the Humanities throughout the academic year. Faculty Fellows receive one or two course releases, which require the support of their department chairs. Fellows will present their work in a public seminar, participate in the workshops and seminars with other fellows at the center, and become full members of the Center’s intellectual and social community. We particularly invite applications from faculty whose creative or scholarly work is interdisciplinary, interdepartmental, and/or fosters cross-campus dialogue. Fellows may seek an appointment in conjunction with a scheduled sabbatical leave.  

CHAT's annual theme for 2024-2025 will be "Climate" (broadly conceived). Applicants are encouraged to reflect on how their research projects can contribute to interdisciplinary conversations about "Climate" in their proposals.
Applications, consisting of a cover letter, CV, a 1500-word research proposal, and a letter of support from the applicant’s department or program chair, should be submitted by December 17, 2023 to Amanda Pepper, Program Administrator, at
