Now that we’ve been officially announced, I am very happy to be able to share the news.
This year, I will be working as an ACLS-funded post-doctoral fellow at University of California Berkeley’s “Practicing the Humanities” initiative, developing curriculum and programming for humanities PhDs. The initiative introduces students to the broad range of career options available to humanities graduates. The unique knowledge bases and skills our fields require are assets in a range of professional fields and sectors!
I noticed was the only philosophy PhD among a diverse group of early-career scholars who had recently completed their doctorates in Anthropology, American Studies, Communication, English, French, Geography, Hispanic Studies, History, Media Studies, Native American Studies, Political Science, Sociology and Spanish, among others.
You can read more about the fellowship here and find out how to apply for the next round:
“In response to the severe economic downturn caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, ACLS created the Emerging Voices Fellowship program to support early career scholars whose voices, perspectives, and broad visions will strengthen institutions of higher education and humanistic disciplines in the years to come. Fellows take up year-long placements with members of ACLS’s Research University Consortium, where they can advance their research and professional development while contributing to the teaching, programming, and administrative work of their host university.”
