James Weldon Johnson Institute Visiting Fellows Program (Emory University)

The James Weldon Johnson Institute of Emory University invites applications for its Visiting Fellows Program. Supported by a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Visiting Fellows Program provides three fellowships for both junior and senior scholars and their career equivalents each academic year. We welcome applications from scholars in the humanities, the humanistic social sciences and law. We are interested in research projects across the spectrum of the humanities, humanistic social science, and professional disciplines that examine the origins, evolution, impact and legacy of race, difference, and the modern quest for civil and human rights. We also support research projects that examine race and ethnicity and its points of intersection with other identities and movements addressing differences along gender, class, religious, or sexual lines. Fellows will each teach one course in the spring semester. Visiting Fellows will be in residence at Emory’s Johnson Institute for the academic year 2016-2017. Candidates must hold a Ph. D. by the start of the fellowship period in August 2016.
