Established in 1986, the Center for Cultural Analysis (CCA) is the leading institute at Rutgers University devoted to advanced interdisciplinary scholarship in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. Each year we run a research seminar that gathers faculty, advanced graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and distinguished visitors for a sustained conversation on a topic of importance to the academy at large. Alongside its main seminar, the CCA supports a series of working groups formed to explore an emerging area of inquiry, and it sponsors public events on problems of general interest that reach across several disciplines. Within Rutgers, the CCA acts as a central interdepartmental hub for collaboration; through the Aresty Fellows Program, it sponsors research opportunities for advanced undergraduates who are interested in creative approaches to interdisciplinary problems. As a member of the Consortium of Humanities Centers and Institutes (CHCI), the CCA is a primary site at the university for international partnerships and multi-institutional projects, enhancing Rutgers’ global reputation as a top-tier research university.

Visiting Fellows Program

Post-Doctoral Fellowships and Associate Fellowships

The CCA sponsors two external fellowships with awards of $45,000 as well as non-funded associate fellowships. Fellowships are often tied to current research themes. All fellows will have access to the Center's resources during the tenure of the fellowship and will be expected to participate in, and to present their work to, the Center seminars, which meet regularly throughout the academic year.
