Residential Fellowships in the Humanities 2013-2014 (EXPIRED)
The Humanities Center, Carnegie Mellon University
|Job category||Visiting fellowship / Professorship / Fixed term|
|AOS||Humanities and the Global University|
|Location||Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States|
During the 2013-2014 academic year the Humanities Center at Carnegie Mellon University will sponsor a series of lectures and workshops focused on The Humanities and the Global University. This year-long series will examine this question “What is the role of the humanities in the "global university?" in terms of both its theoretical and practical aspects. It will understand the humanities as both an institutional arrangement of disciplines and a set of perspectives. A series of speakers will address such questions as: How do concepts like “culture,” “the human,” “aesthetics,” or “knowledge” fit—or not fit—into educational modernization schemes with an international scope? How do the humanities function in the political economy of the global university? What are the practical challenges attached to satellite campuses for Western humanities departments and for the study of traditional humanities topics like literature and history? As universities have expanded globally, they have had to negotiate relationships between national and global perspectives, and between cultural assimilation and difference. The place of the humanities offers a unique challenge in this context. Might it also offer a unique set of solutions? The speakers and workshop coordinated around this theme seek to answer this question.
