Applications close 1 October 2019
Under the auspices of the DST-NRF Flagship on Critical Thought in African Humanities and the SARChI Chair in Visual History and Theory, the Centre for Humanities Research (CHR) at the University of the Western Cape (UWC) is pleased to announce the 2020 Fellowship competition for Post-doctoral, PhD, MA and Honours awards. We invite emerging scholars in the humanities and interpretive social sciences to join a team of scholars and artists who, in conversation and collaboration, continue to contribute significantly to redefining the study of the humanities and social sciences locally and internationally.
In addition to pursuing their own research projects, fellows at the CHR will be core participants in the weekly South African Contemporary History and Humanities Seminar, reading groups, lecture series and other programmes, colloquia and conferences at the CHR. For 2020, prospective candidates will be selected in accordance with the research priorities of the National Flagship Project in the Humanities and the SARChI Chair in Visual History and Theory funded through the National Research Foundation, the National Institute for the Humanities and Social Sciences, and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
