Central European University Institute for Advanced Study

Central European University and the university-based Institute for Advanced Study (IAS CEU) are pleased to announce a call for applications for their Humanities Initiative Fellowship, a joint research and teaching program for the academic year 2017/18. As part of CEU’s commitment to both the humanities and interdisciplinary teaching and research, the University launched this initiative in spring 2014. For more information, please visit The Initiative provides incentives for new cross-departmental and interdisciplinary research and teaching activities in the humanities, and to infuse CEU social science programs with perspectives, approaches and accomplishments taken from the humanities. The Humanities Initiative Fellowship serves the purpose of opening up new fields of research or curricula not currently pursued at CEU. Fellows are chosen by a rigorous selection process, which includes stages of pre-selection and peer reviews as well as a final decision made jointly by an independent, interdisciplinary and international Academic Advisory Board and the relevant teaching unit. The Institute is committed to the pursuit of cutting edge interdisciplinary scholarship and will seek innovative research proposals. Young scholars with demonstrable promise of excellence will be considered. A primary criterion for selection is the expectation that each fellow’s stay at the Institute will yield original and significant research results.
