    THI GRAD FELLOWSHIP: “BEYOND THE END OF THE WORLD”
    2019-20 ANDREW W. MELLON GRADUATE STUDENT FELLOWSHIPS

    Deadline:  Friday, March 8, 2019

    Number of awards:  2 

    Call: The Center for Creative Ecologies and The Humanities Institute at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invite applications for a one-year Dissertation Fellowship as a part of Beyond the End of the World, a year-long Andrew W. Mellon Foundation John E. Sawyer Seminar on the Comparative Study of Culture under the direction of T.J. Demos, Professor of History of Art and Visual Culture and Director of the Center for Creative Ecologies, in collaboration with Professors Hunter Bivens (Literature), Mayanthi Fernando (Anthropology), Deborah Gould (Sociology), and Matthew O’Hara (History).  This project is administered by The Humanities Institute at UCSC.

    We welcome applications from PhD candidates in any discipline or field in the arts, humanities, or humanistic social sciences at UCSC whose research relates to the analysis of cultural expressions of futurity grounded in justice-based frameworks.

    The “Beyond the End of the World” Sawyer Seminar is a year-long series of events investigating world-ending narratives and what comes next, considering culture as a field where futurity might be glimpsed, and asking how it can be cultivated within a social and multispecies justice framework. The seminar’s goal will be to foster interdisciplinary dialogue about speculative imagination and its role in future world-making in the realm of the arts as broadly conceived.

    The successful candidate will be expected to carry out original research, independently or in collaboration with faculty, students, or visiting scholars affiliated with the Center and units with which we collaborate. Awardees will also be expected to assist and participate in seminar activities with faculty, students, and visiting scholars, such as workshops, exhibitions, film screenings, lectures, and colloquia.

    This year-long Dissertation Fellowship provides PhD candidates in the arts, humanities, and humanistic social sciences with much needed time and resources to pursue their research and exercise leadership both within the University and in the public sphere. The Humanities Institute serves as an incubator for new ideas and provides crucial support to students at every stage of the research process. One of our key functions is to identify promising graduate students and to help them become productive researchers through mentorship programs, fellowships, and internship opportunities.

    Award Includes: $25,000 stipend ($7,500 per quarter, plus $2,500 for a summer semester) and in-state tuition, fees, and health insurance. We will award two advanced PhD students at UCSC over AY 2019-2020.

    Fellowship recipients are expected to devote themselves to writing during the time of the award (AY 2019-20), and not to hold teaching assistantships or other employment. Partial-year awards are not permitted. The applications will be evaluated for academic excellence, as well as their ability to contribute to and enhance the overall seminar project.. Fellows are required to present their work during the Sawyer Seminar, hosted by The Center for Creative Ecologies and The Humanities Institute during the 2019-20 academic year. Fellows are also required to present their work during the annual Graduate Research Symposium, hosted by the UCSC Graduate Division during Spring 2020.

    Eligibility:

    a) Be an advanced PhD candidate enrolled in a graduate program in the Humanities, Social Sciences, or Arts Divisions at UCSC; applicants will have taken their Qualifying Exams and advanced to candidacy before the beginning of the fellowship (Fall Quarter 2019);

    b) Be within normative time and in good academic standing;

    c) Be enrolled for at least five credits of graduate-level coursework. Students are ineligible to apply while on leave.

    Application consists of:

    1) Letter of application describing the current status of dissertation research, with a detailed timetable for research and writing plans during 2019-20;
    2) Brief statement of previous and current awards and grants (award and grant titles, dates, and amounts);

    4) Annotated Bibliography, 8-10 works related to dissertation;

    UC SANTA CRUZ – SSRC DISSERTATION PROPOSAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

    DeadlineFriday, February 8, 2019

    Call: We are soliciting applications for 12 students to participate in the Social Science Research Council’s Dissertation Proposal Development (SSRC-DPD) program. The SSRC-DPD program supports dissertation proposal development through interdisciplinary peer discussion and faculty perspectives; training in key research and related professional skills; introduction to a range of social science, cultural, and humanistic methodologies; and practical workshop activities to advance PhD students’ progress towards candidacy and dissertation research/writing. This grant funded program is hosted by The Humanities Institute in conjunction with the Division of Graduate Studies, with support from the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Arts Divisions. Click here to learn more about the SSRC-DPD program and current UCSC fellows.

    Faculty Co-Lead Administrators:

    Award: Each award includes:

    ● $5000 summer funding for support of exploratory research (six weeks minimum) in Summer 2019. Successful proposals will demonstrate specific need to use particular archives and collections, conduct interviews and/or ethnographic investigations, conduct oral histories, consult with important experts and informants, gather film or recorded documentation, etc. Time spent primarily in language preparation, surveying basic scholarly literature, course preparation and teaching, or other competing research activity, workshop, or conferences not clearly connected with the prospective dissertation topic will be evaluated less favorably.

Workshops will be in the Humanities Building on campus.

    ● Two final workshops on September 16 and 17, 2019 to present results of summer research and preparation for writing dissertation prospectus / funding proposals. Attendance is mandatory. Workshops will be in the Humanities Building on campus.

    Eligibility:

    UCSC PhD students in the Division of Social Sciences, the Division of Humanities, or the Division of Arts may apply, with the following restrictions:

    2) A list of courses, including course title / instructor / department, taken as a PhD student at UCSC.

    3) Discuss how your proposed summer research relates to and helps develop your prospective dissertation topic. Please provide each part requested, observing the following guidelines and word limits:

    a. Abstract (150-word maximum)
    b. Introduction of your research topic to an academic reader unfamiliar with your specific topic, region of study, and disciplinary approach. What is your central research question or problem you want to investigate? In what ways is your project timely, important, or relevant? (400-word maximum)
    c. What original contribution do you expect your dissertation to make to the existing literature on your prospective topic? (300-word maximum)

    g. Provide up to 10 references to research literature (books, papers, etc.) that informs your approach to your topic. This is not intended to be an exhaustive scholarly survey of major literature in your field. Choose works that indicate your basic topical, theoretical, and/or methodological approach, and works that have been particularly influential in shaping your research direction.

    4) A summer research budget, with a breakdown of funds requested and a short description and justification of the uses. (250-word maximum)

    5) Letter of recommendation confirming support for the applicant’s participation in the SSRC-DPD, either from the proposed advisor or from the Graduate Director of the applicant’s PhD program. In addition to an evaluation of the student’s potential to contribute to an interdisciplinary social sciences/humanistic graduate researcher cohort and the potential benefits of the student’s participation in the UCSC-SSRC program, the letter writer should commit to meeting prior to and following the program (March-September) to discuss student goals and progress with the faculty program leads; and finally, the letter should confirm student participation in all proposal development workshops stated above. (Letters should be emailed to thi@ucsc.edu).
