Human-Animal Studies Fellowship

Animals and Society Institute & Wesleyan University

The ASI-WAS Human-Animal Studies Fellowship was started by the Animals and Society Institute (ASI) in 2007 and enables 6-8 fellows to pursue research in residence at Wesleyan University at the College of the Environment. The fellowship is designed to support recipients’ individual research in human-animal studies as well as to promote interdisciplinary exchange among the fellows. The Human-Animal Studies Fellowship Program is an annual six-week summer residency that brings together six to eight Animal Studies scholars. Fellows have a PhD or equivalent, or are ABD; are actively working in the field of Animal Studies; and must have a research or writing project that they are engaged in during the duration of the fellowship. Chosen scholars are awarded a stipend that is used to cover travel costs and living expenses during their residency. Recipients of fellowships are expected to be in continuous residence at Wesleyan for the six-week period and to participate in and make a contribution to the intellectual life of the Program through participating in a series of workshops and guest lectures. Fellows will also form a community among themselves and will be expected to communicate with each other about their research.
