The Center for the Humanities at the Graduate Center, CUNY and Humanities New York announce the call for applicants for the 2018-2019 Graduate Student Public Humanities Fellowship.
The Graduate Student Public Humanities Fellowship was developed by Humanities New York in partnership with nine New York research universities to bring humanities scholarship into the public realm, encourage emerging humanities scholars to conceive of their work in relation to the public sphere, develop scholars’ skills for doing public work, and strengthen the public humanities community in New York State. The year-long Fellowship will involve a combination of training in the methods and approaches of the public humanities and work by the Fellow to develop a public project related to their own scholarship in partnership with a community organization.
The skills and experiences afforded by the Fellowship are intended to serve scholars who have a record of working with the public as well as those who are starting to explore the public humanities. It is equally valuable for scholars who plan to pursue careers within the academy and those who plan to pursue other career paths. (more…)
Graduate Center Early Research Initiative/Digital Initiatives
Connect New York Fellowships
Application Deadline: Friday, February 23, 3pm
Located in the heart of Manhattan, the Graduate Center has long been a central hub for intellectual and scholarly conversations in New York City. Moreover, it has a long history of fostering and producing scholarly work focused on the city itself, knowledge which draws upon and contributes to the complex communities of New York City and beyond.
In the spirit of this history, the Early Research Initiative in collaboration with the GC Digital Initiatives invites applications for new research fellowships for Summer 2018. These $4,000 fellowships will be offered to Graduate Center Ph.D. students from any program conducting research on New York City and its environs (including, but not limited to: the city’s natural and artificial environments, its architectural landscapes, its infrastructure, city planning, city politics, its prominence as a global and economic hub, the city’s political, cultural, and social histories, its foodways, its flows of population, its communities, its ethnoscapes, soundscapes, mediascapes, and ideoscapes, and its evolving urban ecosystems).

Review of Applications will begin on February 16, 2018
Based in the GC Digital Scholarship Lab, the GC Digital Fellows Program operates as an in-house think-and-do tank for digital projects, connecting Fellows to digital initiatives throughout The Graduate Center. GC Digital Fellows utilize a team-based approach as they explore creative solutions for projects that can be implemented in a collaborative fashion. In the process, the Program helps build out “The Digital GC” — a vision of the Graduate Center that incorporates technology into its core research and teaching missions.

The CUNY Graduate Center’s Teaching and Learning Center invites applications for TLC Fellowships for the 2018-19 academic year. TLC Fellows support CUNY Graduate Center students who are teaching across CUNY by developing and leading workshops and Focused Inquiry Groups, adding to the Teach@CUNY Handbook, consulting with graduate instructors during office hours, and contributing to a range of other projects. During the 2017-18 academic year, TLC fellows worked on projects related to creative assignment design, accessibility, socially conscious pedagogy, open teaching, teaching as an international student, museum pedagogy, approaches to interdisciplinarity, open educational resources, digital pedagogy, and more. In addition to continuing this work, the TLC plans to launch additional programs in 2018-2019 that focus on quantitative and scientific instructional methodologies, working across satellite CUNY campuses, and approaches to undergraduate research. Read more about the Teaching and Learning Center’s work at http://cuny.is/teaching. This is a terrific opportunity to join a team of committed educators who are thinking through what support for graduate student teachers can and should look like, specifically in the context of the nation’s largest, urban, public university.
GC TLC Fellows report to the director of the Teaching and Learning Center, and will work both independently and in collaboration with other TLC fellows, the assistant director, and two post-doctoral fellows. Ideal candidates will be deeply engaged with the City University of New York, and will be experienced college instructors familiar with current pedagogical conversations in the academy. Special consideration will be given to candidates with a proven ability to conceive of and implement original programming that furthers the scholarship of teaching and learning, and a demonstrated interest in interdisciplinary work between the humanities, social sciences and the sciences.
Strong writing, digital, and presentational skills are required, as is current enrollment in a doctoral program at the Graduate Center.

CUNY and SUNY are currently making significant investments to support the deployment of Open Educational Resources (OER). OER are texts and other materials that reside in the public domain or that have been released under an intellectual property license that permits repurposing by others, and their use can both save students significant amounts of money as they pursue their degrees and allow faculty to more easily integrate a range of voices and materials into their courses. OER are one significant pillar in a suite of open teaching practices that encourage faculty to explore the empowering benefits of networked, experiential, and active learning pedagogies in their teaching. Though OER have been available for a generation, they are increasingly being collected and bundled with other services via OER repositories such as OpenStax, Lumen Learning, and The Open Textbook Library.
