Humanities New York Public Humanities Graduate Fellows

The Graduate Student Public Humanities Fellowship was developed by Humanities New York in partnership with nine New York research universities to bring humanities scholarship into the public realm, encourage emerging humanities scholars to conceive of their work in relation to the public sphere, develop scholars’ skills for doing public work, and strengthen the public humanities community in New York State. The year-long Fellowship involves a combination of training in the methods and approaches of public scholarship and work by the Fellows to explore the public dimensions of their own scholarship in partnership with a community organization.
