The University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Nordic Folklife project is offering two Postdoctoral fellowships in order to further folklife fieldwork and research with Nordic American folk artists and organizations. Fellows will be expected to conduct original fieldwork, research, and create public productions based on their fieldwork and documentation, culminating in a public project to be completed in the final year of the fellowship.

Each fellowship is a two year position, beginning August 22, 2022 and will be based at the Center for the Study of Upper Midwestern Cultures. Funding for fellows includes a stipend and limited funds for a computer, production supplies, travel throughout the region, and conference fees.

The Nordic Folklife Fellowships are designed to provide professional development experiences in public folklore and outreach to ensure that the next generation of folklorists are prepared to work in a variety of contexts, and are able to take their experience with Nordic and Nordic American folklore with them wherever they go.
