The Taft Research Center, established from the original 1930 Charles Phelps Taft Fund, supports 15 humanities and social science departments in UC’s College of Arts and Sciences and facilitates their collaboration and public impact at UC, in the region, and globally. Taft is a member of the Consortium of Humanities Centers and Institutes and the National Humanities Alliance.
The purpose of this Fellowship is to provide emergent, interdisciplinary scholars with time to further their work in an interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary setting, and to provide them with mentoring from a faculty member in their field. The committee is particularly interested in scholars whose work addresses social justice issues and/or engages with diverse publics in contemporary, historical, and/or trans/national context.
Scholars who have received their Ph.D. after June 2018 in any field of inquiry in the 15 humanities and social science Taft member units (Africana Studies; Anthropology; School of Communication, Media, and Film Studies; Economics; English & Comparative Literature; German Studies; History; Journalism; Judaic Studies; Mathematical Sciences; Philosophy; School of Public and International Affairs; Romance and Arabic Languages & Literatures; Sociology; and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies) are invited to apply for a postdoctoral fellowship.
