Public Humanities Hub Joint Fellowship
The objective of the Public Humanities Hub Joint Fellowship (PHJF) is to allow a faculty member at UBC Okanagan to partner with a scholar from another institution to collaborate on a year-long humanities project with clear potential for impact in the Okanagan Valley (e.g. a summer institute, school resources or exhibition). PHJF from other institutions are expected to visit UBC Okanagan as part of their project
The PHJF aims to build capacity in the public humanities on this campus, improve the visibility of the humanities in the Okanagan, strengthen our reputation abroad, and lead to further collaborative research projects. Where appropriate, the PH Joint Fellowship program would be aligned with the Reichwald Visiting Scholar and other campus programs.
Applications for the PHJF are not being accepted for the 2021/22 academic year.
