Penn Faculty Mellon Research Fellowships

The Penn Humanities Forum was launched in the spring of 1999 with a "Celebration of Philadelphia Writers" organized by Wendy Steiner. That three-day event brought together dozens of local novelists, poets, and scholars in historic and cultural venues throughout the city. 

Over 2000 Philadelphians attended the readings, walking tours, performances, and lectures, and thousands across the country saw these re-broadcast on C-Span. The Celebration epitomized the Forum's mission: to use humanistic knowledge and expertise to promote an ongoing cultural conversation involving artists, academics in various disciplines, and the general public.

Applications are solicited from standing faculty members in the humanities and allied departments at Penn for the Penn Humanities Forum's Mellon Faculty Research Fellowships.

Available are junior faculty awards of $5000 disbursed as salary, as well as senior faculty awards of $10,000 paid directly to departments to offset the cost of a course release.

Fellows must be engaged in research directly related to Adaptations, the Forum's topic. Fellows are also expected to participate in the Forum's weekly Mellon Research Seminar held on Tuesdays, 12:00–2:00 p.m. during the academic year, presenting a paper during the course of the year.

Other seminar members include Mellon Postdoctoral Fellows, Regional Faculty and Cultural Fellows, the directors of the Forum, and others.
