Yale University, Center for the Study of Race, Indigeneity, and Transnational Migration
Mellon RITM Arts and Practitioner Fellowship, Spring 2024
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||Connecticut, United States|
The Yale Center for the Study of Race, Indigeneity, and Transnational Migration (RITM) invites artists, media makers, and journalists whose work focuses on race, indigeneity, and/or transnational migration to apply to be a Mellon Arts & Practitioner Fellow during the Spring 2024 term from February 5th through May 3rd, 2024.
RITM is a university-wide, interdisciplinary academic research center that aims to advance rigorous, innovative research and teaching on key topics of historical and contemporary importance. Building upon Yale’s longstanding strengths, RITM fosters intellectual exchanges that cross institutional, disciplinary, and geographic borders; enrich and challenge academic fields; and foreground perspectives often underrepresented in university and policy circles. Through research, teaching, and programming, the Center deepens and transforms scholarship, supports undergraduate and graduate education, and engages local and global audiences.
Please note that this fellowship will be in person in New Haven, Connecticut.
We encourage Fellows to identify one or more potential Yale units beyond RITM with which they hope to engage. These units might be departments, institutes, museums, libraries, or other campus organizations. Fellows will be asked to meet regularly as a cohort and may also have the opportunity to present their projects in classes, other campus-wide lectures or performances, and other forms of community engagement. Projects should focus at least in part on issues of race, ethnicity, indigeneity, and/or transnational migration.
