In partnership with the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Columbia Global Centers | Amman has established a new fellowship program to support emerging displaced scholars working in the humanities and humanistic social sciences. The goal of the program is to create opportunities for scholars to reintegrate into academia and resume their academic pursuits.
Fields may include literature, linguistics, philosophy, archaeology, cultural heritage and historical preservation, museum studies, religious studies, musicology, history, and criticism and theory of the arts. Scholars in the fields of social sciences that have humanistic content and employ humanistic methods—such as anthropology, sociology, gender and ethnic studies are also welcome.
Eligible candidates are scholars in the humanities and humanistic social sciences who have been forcibly uprooted from their home countries and respective academic institutions. They could be graduate students who have had their education disrupted or post-doctoral scholars in the early stages of their careers. Creative writers, artists, and curators may also apply.
Fellows will be expected to participate in scholarly presentations, workshops, and roundtable discussions. They will be connected to a global network of academics and scholars in Jordan, New York (from Columbia University), and beyond.
