Scholars pursuing interdisciplinary work are invited to apply for a semester-long Quadrant Fellowship at the University of Minnesota to be held in academic year 2012-2013. Quadrant is a joint initiative of the University of Minnesota Press, a leader in interdisciplinary scholarly publishing, and the Institute for Advanced Study.
Submission deadline for complete applications is November 17, 2011. Electronic submission is preferred. Paper submissions must be postmarked by November 17, 2011.
During their semester in residence at the IAS in Minneapolis, fellows will receive a stipend of up to $30,000, depending on rank and experience. Fellowships include medical and dental coverage. At the IAS, fellows will participate in weekly lunches and public lectures with a lively interdisciplinary community that includes University of Minnesota fellows and other Quadrant fellows. They will also be involved in at least one of Quadrant's research and publishing collaboratives: Design, Architecture, and Culture; Environment, Culture, and Sustainability; Global Cultures; and Health and Society. Fellows will give a public lecture and will present a work-in-progress in a workshop setting with their Quadrant collaborative group or groups. In addition, they will work directly with an editor from the University of Minnesota Press to develop their manuscripts for submission.
All applications must be either postmarked or submitted online via PDF by November 17, 2011. Fellowship offers will be made in spring semester 2012, pending renewal of funding.
