The focal theme for the program is "Water, A Critical Concept for the Humanities."
The program calls for scholarly reflection on critical concepts of water from a broad range of disciplinary and inter-disciplinary perspectives.
The society welcomes applications from scholars and artists who theorize, research, and perform water as a critical concept for the humanities.
Applicants must have received the Ph.D. degree before January 1, 2008, and must also have one or more years of teaching experience which may include teaching as a graduate student.
Fellows include scholars from other universities and members of the Cornell faculty released from regular duties.
The fellowships are held for one academic year. Each fellow will receive $45,000.
