Applications are solicited from Standing Faculty in the humanities and allied departments for the 2008-2009 Mellon Penn Faculty Research Fellowships at the Penn Humanities Forum. Call for Applications Deadline: February 1, 2008.

Awards in the amount of $5000 are available for junior faculty (assistant professors) to be disbursed as salary; $10,000 awards are also available to senior faculty (associate and full) paid directly to departments to offset the cost of one course release. 

Fellows must be engaged in research directly related to Change, the Forum’s topic for 2008-2009, the Forum’s tenth anniversary. Fellows also are expected to participate in the Forum’s weekly Mellon Research Seminar held on Tuesdays, noon-2 p.m., during the academic year. 

Full details on the fellowship application process and the Forum’s tenth anniversary topic, Change, are available online at http://humanities.sas.upenn.edu/topics08.shtml.
