Provost Post-Doctoral Fellowships at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee

The Center for 21st Century Studies (C21) at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee leads the way in imagining, defining, and creating the burgeoning field of 21st century studies, focusing on the intersection of the humanities, arts, and sciences (social and natural) with issues of compelling concern.

C21 organizes its research and public programs around themes that change periodically. Each year C21 constitutes a group of six to eight UWM faculty fellows, and at least one UW System fellow, whose research interests relate to the theme. Nationally and internationally known scholars are brought to campus to address the topic of the year’s research in seminars, lectures, and conferences.

Applicants must have received their doctorates within five academic years previous to the year of award; international applicants must have received their degrees from a non-U.S. university. The Provost fellowships are designed to further broaden the academic networks of the group of faculty in residence at C21, and are thus unavailable to UW-Milwaukee and UW System faculty. Fellowships are awarded to support interdisciplinary research projects in the humanities, which include, but are not limited to, philosophy, history, literature, religious studies, and art history. Proposals employing humanistic approaches from the social and natural sciences and the arts are also welcome. Applicants should be working on topics related to this year’s theme “What is 21st century studies?”

The Provost fellows are expected to be in residence for one academic year and participate in bi-weekly fellows’ seminars, public events, and lectures, as well as the Center’s major annual conference. The fellows are expected to make a public presentation of research at some point during the year. Fellows are provided with office space and library privileges. The Provost fellowships may be held concurrently with other grants, and with sabbatical or other support from home institutions. The fellowships do not carry health insurance or other benefits.
