Following the murder of George Floyd and weeks of protest, Indiana Humanities committed to using our humanities work to shed light, provide comfort and aid discourse about racial injustice. In this spirit, we’re pleased to introduce a fellowship of $2,500 to support new humanities research that explores anti-Black racial injustice and structural racism in Indiana and how Black Hoosiers have responded.
The fellowship is open to individual researchers or research teams who can sufficiently demonstrate their credibility as researchers and show how their proposed topic aligns to our goals. Researchers do not need to be based in Indiana but must show how their research relates significantly to Indiana.
We welcome proposals from across the fields of humanities inquiry, including but not limited to history, literature, philosophy, cultural studies, religious studies, art history, folklorem ethnomusicology and gender studies, as well as humanistic social sciences such as political science, sociology and anthropology.
Applications for the fellowships have now closed.
