DOCTORAL RESEARCH IN SUSTAINABILITY & THE HUMANITIES

The Society for the Humanities partners with the David R. Atkinson Cetner for a Sustainable Future to support work within the humanities and arts that touches on “the environment” and cultures of energy — from histories of social-ecological thought to studies of the aesthetic dimensions of wind power controversies, from avant-garde landscape photography to critiques of the concept of sustainability. Grants may be used for travel, books, materials, the hiring of an assistant, or any other clearly identified purpose.

Given the mandate of the Society for the Humanities, we will give preference to applicants whose home departments fall within the humanities or arts. But anyone doing humanistic or artistic work is welcome to apply.
