Stanford Institute for Creativity and the Arts
Stanford Humanities Center
The Stanford Institute for Creativity and the Arts (SiCa) and the Stanford Humanities Center intend to offer one residential fellowship at Stanford for academic year 2008-09 to a practitioner who is also a writer, scholar, or critic pursuing a research project in the arts. This fellow will be the first in a pilot fellowship program bringing together the humanities and arts in a research and creative environment on Stanford campus.
The fellowship recipient will be in residence at the Stanford Humanities Center and will be part of an intellectual community of about 25 fellows working on projects in history, literature, philosophy, and other humanities fields. The fellow will be affiliated with one of the three SiCa centers: The Center for Arts, Science and Technology, The Center for Global Arts, and the Center for Humanities and the Arts.
This fellowship seeks to bridge the worlds of art practice, on the one hand, and writing and thinking about art, on the other. The successful applicant will be both an arts practitioner and a scholar or critic interested in entering into dialogue with scholars in a wide range of humanities disciplines.
