The Open Society University Network (OSUN) Center for Human Rights & the Arts invites applications for one-year research and teaching fellowships in human rights and the arts. The positions are open to individuals working in a variety of fields where human rights and the arts intersect, including artists, curators, researchers, scholars, writers, filmmakers, advocates, and activists.
The fellowships cover a period of one year, i.e. two academic semesters, from July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022, and are based at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, NY. The Fellows will pursue their own research or creative practice within the interdisciplinary and critical framework of the Center, and contribute to the curriculum of the Center’s MA Program in Human Rights and the Arts by teaching one course each semester.
The Center for Human Rights and the Arts builds on existing human rights projects across OSUN that share a commitment to the interdisciplinary critical exploration of human rights discourse and practice, while giving new emphasis to the explosive force of artistic research and creation in struggles for rights and justice. It will link scholars with artists and activists outside the academic environment as well as within it, creating new opportunities for inquiry, practice, and experimentation.
