Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Humanities at Haverford College, 2020-2022

The John B. Hurford '60 Center for the Arts and Humanities at Haverford College invites applications for a two-year Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Humanities to begin Fall 2020. We seek a thinker and/or practitioner interested in reenactment as scholarly topic, artistic medium, or research modality. 

During the first year of the program, the Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow will participate in a year-long faculty seminar “Again as Before: Reenactment”, led by John Muse and Vicky Funari (Visual Studies), that will bring together faculty with a variety of disciplinary perspectives. In order to better understand the cultural ubiquity and allure of reenactment, the seminar will examine the relation of precedent events to their reenactment, the difference between live reenactments and technically mediated ones, and the presuppositions about subjectivity, sameness, time, memory, truth, and experience that undergird the concept of reenactment. Applicants should make clear the nature of their potential contributions to this interdisciplinary and intersectional inquiry that will explore the history, theory, and practice of reenactment. In the second year, the Fellow will organize and present a spring symposium related to their scholarly field funded by the Hurford Center. 

In each of the four semesters at Haverford College, the Fellow will teach one course at the introductory/intermediate or advanced level and engage a diverse student body. Applicants should submit two brief course proposals related to their area of interest: one for a broad-based introductory or intermediate course and the other for a more specialized or advanced course.

Candidates who have earned their Ph.D. no earlier than 2015 or will have completed all requirements for the Ph.D. by May 1, 2020, are eligible to apply via apply.interfolio.com/70430.

Applicants are asked to submit a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, two course proposals, and a writing sample of no more than 25 pages, and should arrange to have three confidential letters of recommendation. For those who have yet to complete the requirements of their degree by the time of application, at least one letter of recommendation must attest to their schedule of completion by May 1, 2020.

Applications are due by 11:59 p.m. EST on Monday, January 13, 2020.

Questions can be directed to Noemí Fernández (nfernandez@haverford.edu), John B. Hurford '60 Center for the Arts and Humanities, Haverford College, Haverford, PA 19041
