PPEH Graduate Research Fellows 2021-2022
The Penn Program in Environmental Humanities is now accepting applications for up to five one-year research fellowships to Penn graduate students who have completed their qualifying exams. The Fellows Program supports individual projects (either the dissertation or research in preparation for it) with a stipend between $2,000-4,000 and convenes a year-long Collaborative Public Research Colloquium for PPEH’s Graduate and Undergraduate Fellows. In AY 2021-22, Fellows will participate in a collaboratively organized series of seminars and lectures organized by the cluster for graduate training in the environmental humanities at the University of Toronto, Oxford University, and Penn. This colloquium is designed to facilitate alternative academic career exposure and training in public research methods with invited experts. It further provides Graduate Fellows opportunities to develop research mentorship experience; and to develop and execute cross-disciplinary, public engagement projects, including public writing on the well-trafficked PPEH Fellows blog. In the spring semester, participants in the Research Colloquium receive one course credit by enrolling in Public Environmental Humanities taught in 2022 by PPEH Faculty Director Bethany Wiggin.
