David B. Larson Fellowship in Health and Spirituality

The John W. Kluge Center, Library of Congress
Deadline: April 17, 2014

A post-doctoral fellowship in the field of health and spirituality, made possible by a generous endowment from the International Center for the Integration of Health and Spirituality (ICIHS), the fellowship is named in honor of the Center’s late founder, David B. Larson, an epidemiologist and psychiatrist, who focused on potentially relevant but understudied factors which might help in prevention, coping, and recovering from illness. The fellowship is designed to continue Dr. Larson’s legacy of promoting meaningful, scholarly study of these two important and increasingly interrelated fields. It seeks to encourage the pursuit of scholarly excellence in the scientific study of the relation of religiousness and spirituality to physical, mental, and social health.

CHCI, centerNet, & UWS Collaborate to Sponsor Digital Scholars to Attend DH2015

New Scholars Seminar in Digital Humanities:  June 29-30th, 2015 at the University of Western Sydney

 

CHCI, centerNet and UWS are collaborating to organize a pre-conference seminar for new scholars interested in the digital humanities. We have arranged for support for up to 10 scholars from outside Australia and 5 scholars resident in Australia to help with the costs of transportation and accommodation to the seminar in Sydney. An additional 10 bursaries are available under a separate scheme for research students from the University of Western Sydney.

 

What is the New Scholars Seminar (NSS)?

The NSS is a two-day unconference event on Monday and Tuesday, June 29th and 30th connected with public events on Building Communities and Networks in the Humanities. The events are for new scholars to meet and develop research collaborations in the digital humanities. The agenda for the unconference events will be set by the participants. The events are timed to take place before DH 2015 (dh2015.org) at the University of Western Sydney in Sydney, Australia.

 

Who would participate?
For the purposes of this seminar a “new scholar” is defined as someone who is either a graduate student or someone who has received their PhD within the last 5 years (or longer if a case is made for career interruption). Postdoctoral fellows and people in alternative academic positions are welcome to apply.

Participation will be by reviewed application and accommodation/travel support will be limited to 15 people, including 10 affiliated with CHCI and 5 participants from Australia.

 

How does one apply?

Applications are due by April 15. Applications include i) a Statement of Research that outlines your research interests in digital humanities; ii) a letter of support from a CHCI centre/institute director (not required for Australian applicants), including a statement specifying the matching funds the centre will offer to supplement the $1,250 combined CHCI and centerNet contributions toward the applicant’s trip; and iii) a short two-page CV. Applications should be sent to the Kule Institute for Advanced Study <kias@ualberta.ca> at the University of Alberta.

 

What sort of support will be provided?

CHCI and centerNet have negotiated a support package for participants, encouraging matching support from the applicant’s home institution.

  • CHCI will provide $1,000 USD in support for up to 10 participants outside Australia who are sponsored by CHCI institutes. centerNet will provide a further $250 USD in support for these participants.
  • CHCI will provide $250 USD in support for up to 5 participants resident in Australia. Preference will be given to those affiliated with a centre that is a member of the Australasian Consortium of Humanities Research Centres (ACHRC).
  • Students from UWS should apply to the UWS bursary scheme, which will be internally advertised.
  • The sponsoring CHCI institutes are expected to provide matching support to the applicants if they are accepted.
  • Successful applicants will be provided with catering during the 2-day seminar.
  • Successful applicants will also be provided with a conference registration subsidy of $100 per new scholar (reducing the cost to $295 AUD, which includes full conference catering).

The Kule Institute for Advanced Study at the University of Alberta is organizing this seminar on behalf of CHCI and centerNet. Rachel Hendery (Senior Lecturer in Digital Humanities, UWS) and Geoffrey Rockwell (Director, Kule Institute for Advanced Study, University of Alberta, Canada) will convene the New Scholars Seminar.

 

New Scholars Seminar Programme:

The programme for the seminar will be developed by the participants once accepted and coordinated by the Kule Institute for Advanced Study. The idea is to empower new scholars to develop their own research directions and collaborations. There will therefore be two phases:

  1. Before the on-site portion of the Seminar there will be an online component. Participants will share their Statements and negotiate what will happen during the seminar. We expect there will be clusters of research interests that emerge which can form the intellectual backbone of the Seminar. KIAS will coordinate an online conversation that will encourage leadership to emerge from within the group so that the actual structure of the on-site days will be primarily organized by the participants.
  2. The on-site portion of the Seminar will take place over two days before the DH2015 conference (29 and 30 June). The program will include short presentations by participants addressing issues identified in online discussion and unconference activities. Also included will be a panel of senior researchers from the DH community discussing careers in the digital humanities and an opportunity to talk with these researchers in small groups.

NEH creates new “public scholar” grant program supporting popular scholarly book in the humanities

 

(courtesy post)

http://www.neh.gov/news/press-release/2014-12-01

WASHINGTON (December 1, 2014) — The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) today announced a new grant opportunity that encourages the publication of nonfiction books that apply serious humanities scholarship to subjects of general interest and appeal.

The new NEH Public Scholar awards support well-researched books in the humanities conceived and written to reach a broad readership. Books supported through this program might present a narrative history, tell the stories of important individuals, analyze significant texts, provide a synthesis of ideas, revive interest in a neglected subject, or examine the latest thinking on a topic. Most importantly, they should open up important and appealing subjects for wider audiences by presenting significant humanities topics in a way that is accessible to general readers.

“At the Endowment we take very seriously the idea, expressed in our founding legislation, that the humanities belong to all the people of the United States,” said NEH Chairman William D. Adams.  “In announcing the new Public Scholar program we hope to challenge humanities scholars to think creatively about how specialized research can benefit a wider public.”

The NEH Public Scholar program represents a long-term commitment at NEH to encourage scholarship in the humanities for general audiences. The grant program forms part of a new agency-wide initiative, The Common Good: The Humanities in the Public Square, which seeks to demonstrate and enhance the role and significance of the humanities and humanities scholarship in public life.

The Public Scholar program is open to both independent scholars and individuals affiliated with scholarly institutions. It offers a stipend of $4,200 per month for a period of six to twelve months. The maximum stipend is $50,400 for a twelve-month period. Applicants must have previously published a book or monograph with a university or commercial press, or articles and essays that reach a wide readership.

Application guidelines and a list of F.A.Q.’s for the Public Scholar program are available online at www.NEH.gov. The application deadline for the first cycle of Public Scholar grants is March 3, 2015.

National Endowment for the Humanities: Created in 1965 as an independent federal agency, the National Endowment for the Humanities supports research and learning in history, literature, philosophy, and other areas of the humanities by funding selected, peer-reviewed proposals from around the nation. Additional information about the National Endowment for the Humanities and its grant programs is available at: www.neh.gov.
