The Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities at Case Western Reserve University seeks applicants for The Virginia and Walter Nord Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Humanities.

The purpose of the BNC Postdoctoral Fellowship is to support research in the humanities by providing scholars in the early stages of their careers with the time and resources necessary to advance their work. During their time at the Baker-Nord Center, Fellows will pursue a research and writing project for the full academic year. An essential feature of the program is that Fellows make intellectual contributions to the CWRU community, through their participation in workshops, lectures, and courses.

Fellows will be affiliated with one or more of the humanities departments represented by the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities: Art History, English, Philosophy. We are particularly interested in Fellows whose scholarly and/or creative inquiry engage the following areas of speculation and the speculative, intersectional humanities, global Afrofuturism(s), and/or decolonial methods and approaches. The BNC Post-Doctoral Fellow will be expected to offer an undergraduate course during the spring of their fellowship year, following consultation with their host department.

The Fellowship may be renewed for a second year, during which candidates will be expected to offer an undergraduate course in each term.
