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
graduate student fellows or teaching roles for incoming students taking part in our
Summer Institute and advanced students who have been awarded a
Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship. 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 full-time faculty interested in joining the leadership team of our 2023 Summer Institute for newly admitted undergraduate students (July 17-21, 2023). The Summer Institute will be focused on
Stories for Racial Justice and Healing. 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 STRC is seeking applications from LAS full-time faculty interested in co-teaching the STRC Undergraduate Research Fellowship Seminar (SURFS). Faculty will 1) co-teach this 5-week course in interdisciplinary humanities research methods for
six STRC Undergraduate Research Fellows during Summer Session I 2023; and 2) oversee the completion of the projects of
three fellows each over the subsequent Autumn Quarter and early December 2023.
The Collaborative offers two, twelve-month-long scholarly or community-engaged Research Fellowships for untenured or mid-career tenure-line 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 2023 and continue through June 2024.
The Collaborative offers two, six-month-long Professional Development Fellowships for tenure-line faculty 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. Fellowships will begin in July 2023 and continue through December 2023.
