Call for Applications | 2016-17 Princeton-Mellon Fellowship

Posted By: 

Applications for the Princeton-Mellon Fellowship in Architecture, Urbanism & the Humanities are being accepted for the 2016-17 academic year.

 

OVERVIEW
The Princeton-Mellon Initiative in Architecture, Urbanism, and the Humanities is currently inviting applications for the 2016-17 academic year. The Initiative's theme is "Cities of the Americas: Architecture, Society, Policy, and Culture." We invite applications for year-long Mellon Fellow positions and one semester-long Senior Mellon Fellow positions (which can be extended to a year's residency with outside, non-Princeton support).

Princeton University invites applications from scholars, writers, critics and practitioners of exceptional promise to pursue projects at Princeton University related to architecture, urbanism, and the humanities, specifically in the context of North and South America. Mellon Fellows may be from any discipline. We seek applicants with outstanding intellectual, literary, and visual talents, who demonstrate an abiding interest in multi-disciplinary work. Senior Fellows will be selected for their capacity to widen the Program's intellectual horizons at the intersection of architecture, urbanism, and the humanities, and to offer accomplished figures the chance to take part in Princeton's singular scholarly, teaching, and social community. Fellow positions are for early career scholars, writers, critics, and practitioners of exceptional promise to pursue projects at Princeton University related to the Initiative themes.

Subject to the applicants' qualifications and approval of the Dean of the Faculty, Mellon Fellows may have the opportunity to teach or assist in teaching a multidisciplinary course related to architecture, urbanism, and the humanities in addition to their primary pursuit of writing/research/or design projects. The Fellows' projects may be undertaken in collaboration with students or other faculty while on campus. Fellows will participate actively in events related to the Initiative, including the Princeton-Mellon Forum for Research on the Urban Environment. In addition to this work, Fellows may deliver a public lecture or propose another small event, work, or project related to the Initiative.
