Mellon Dance Studies Seminar at Brown, Summer 2013

Now accepting applications for Mellon Dance Studies Summer Seminar 2013

Applications from advanced graduate students, recent Ph.D.s, and junior faculty are invited for an intensive summer seminar on interdisciplinary research and teaching in dance studies. Funded by the Mellon Foundation, the seminar will be held June 16-22, 2013 at Brown University. Participants will engage with each other’s work as well as with the work of invited senior scholars. Accepted applicants will have their costs covered for tuition, room and board and, in addition, receive up to $500 to cover travel expenses. International applicants are welcome, as are applicants from all fields in the humanities and humanistic social sciences that border dance studies.

Please send a cover letter stating your research and teaching interests, curriculum vitae, writing sample, and two letters of recommendation to Dance Studies Seminar Committee, Northwestern University, University Hall 215, 1897 Sheridan Road, Evanston IL 60208-2240. Electronic applications (in Word or pdf) may be emailed to project assistant Jennifer Britton (j-britton@northwestern.edu) with the subject line “Dance Studies Seminar.” Deadline for applications is January 15, 2013.

The 2013 summer seminar is part of a multi-year initiative titled Dance Studies in/and the Humanities. A Mellon-funded partnership between three universities—Brown, Northwestern and Stanford—Dance Studies in/and the Humanities invests in emerging scholars in a growing field. Subsequent summer seminars will be held at Stanford (2014) and Northwestern (2015). Postdoctoral fellows in Dance Studies were appointed at all three schools in September 2012; a second and final class of postdoctoral fellows will be appointed in September 2014.
