The STRC offers a range of opportunities for College of LAS humanities faculty working on themes related to the histories and cultures of people of color: from
faculty research fellowships in the humanities, to
professional development grants for interdisciplinary training, to
mentorship roles for our student fellows or incoming students taking part in our Summer Institute. Moreover, all faculty at DePaul are welcome to join in our public events and are encouraged to participate in STRC's intellectual community.
The STRC is seeking applications from LAS tenure-line faculty interested in joining the leadership team of our 2022 Summer Institute for newly admitted undergraduate students (July 25-29, 2022). The Summer Institute will be focused on
Influencers for Racial and Social Justice. The two Lead Faculty will have expertise in the subject matter and theme of the Institute, be deeply conversant with the Humanities, and have a desire to connect with and mentor students.
The Collaborative offers two, twelve-month-long scholarly or community-engaged Research Fellowships for untenured or mid-career faculty in the humanities for whom extended paid leave and research assistance would provide time to make progress toward publication prior to tenure and/or promotion. Fellowships will begin in July 2022 and continue through June 2023.
The Collaborative offers two, six-month-long Professional Development Fellowships for tenure-line faculty in the College of LAS who are working on subjects related to populations of color and who need time and space to learn new methods, content, and approaches outside their discipline to bolster the interdisciplinary reach of their scholarship and teaching. In keeping with the mission of the STRC, proposals should advance interdisciplinary humanities as tools for addressing the histories and contemporary structures of racism through healing, restoration, and social transformation. Faculty in the Humanities are particularly encouraged to apply, but faculty outside the Humanities, who wish to incorporate Humanities methods, content and approaches into their scholarship or teaching, are also eligible to apply. Fellowships will begin in July 2022 and continue through December 2022.
