Harvardís Charles Warren Center Seminar seeks applications for a year-long faculty fellowship and workshop on the analysis and presentation of multimedia history and literature. The digital revolution presents challenges and opportunities to customary ways of conducting research, presenting findings, storytelling, and reading. Historical and literary scholarship can now include open-ended and multiform engagements that invite us to reconsider how history and literature have been, could be, and should be represented.
What are the virtues and limitations of the new multimedia environments? How do changes of medium transform approaches to chronology, space, genre, characterization, and plotting? What constitutes an archive? How are writers employing modes of production beyond print? By addressing these broad questions, among others, the seminar seeks to explore new models for the design of historical and literary scholarship. Fellows will participate in a seminar led by Vincent Brown (Departments of History and African and African American Studies) and Glenda Carpio (Departments of English and African and African American Studies).
Applicants may not be degree candidates and should have a Ph.D. or equivalent. (Typically these are faculty fellowships, though may be held by those without a tenure-track position.) Fellows have library privileges and an office which they must use for at least the 9-month academic year. Stipends: individually determined according to fellow needs and Center resources, up to a maximum of $54,000, without benefits. More information at warrencenter.fas.harvard.edu. Apply at https://academicpositions.harvard.edu/postings/4882 no later than December 16, 2013, with recommendation letters due January 15, 2014. Decisions conveyed in early March.
