A.W. Mellon Postdoctoral Program in the Humanities Deadline: November 14, 2011

The University of Wisconsin-Madison invites applications for its postdoctoral fellowship program in the humanities and humanistic social sciences. Funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, it will award three two-year postdoctoral fellowships for recent PhDs starting on August 27, 2012.

The theme for 2012-13 is "Media: Cuneiform to Digital and Beyond." From discourse networks to print culture; from semiotics to graphic systems; from codex to video; from radio to radiography; and from data mining to the culture industry, the interdisciplinary humanities have produced a wide range of theories and histories of media. We invite applications for excellent, cutting-edge work focused on any media (verbal, visual, audial, kinetic); on any forms (oral, print, performance, digital); and on any media systems (local, global, private, mass market). We encourage both a long and broad view of media studies and welcome applications from researchers across the humanities and humanistic social sciences whose work reflects upon or has significant implications for ancient to contemporary conceptions of media and mediation in any region(s) of the world. We seek work that challenges disciplinary or methodological boundaries. Applicants should take care in their proposals to explicate how their research relates to this theme.

In an effort to foster disciplinary diversity in our postdoctoral program of six fellows, because these disciplines are already represented, we are unlikely to award fellowships to candidates whose teaching would be in the departments of Geography, Art History, or Philosophy. PhDs and doctoral candidates of the UW-Madison are ineligible.

The stipend for Mellon postdoctoral fellows is $55,167 per academic year, with a $2,000 per year research allowance, $3,000 per year travel allowance, and a one-time $2,500 computer allowance. Fellows are eligible for health insurance (http://www.uwsa.edu/hr/benefits/gradben.pdf).

In addition to boasting over 50 departments and centers in the humanities, UW-Madison is the home of the Center for the History of Print and Digital Culture as well as the locus of new initiatives and projects in the Digital Humanities, Public Humanities, and Visual Culture.
