The Center is accepting applications from scholars interested in fellowships for the resident research program. Each year the Center brings together a new group of faculty Fellows from OSU and other universities, as well as independent scholars, to pursue research and writing in an environment designed to be stimulating as well as protected from the usual daily demands of academic life. Up to ten Fellows will be selected, including senven or eight faculty members from Oregon State University and two or three visiting Fellows.
Applications from both Oregon State faculty and visiting scholars may be for any humanities related research, which should be understood to include not only traditional humanities disciplines but also those projects within the social and natural sciences that are historical or philosophical in approach, and that attempt to cast light on questions of interpretation or criticism traditionally found in the humanities. This also includes interpretations of science and technology.
Visiting Fellows will receive a stipend, and OSU Fellows will be released from teaching. All Fellows receive an office in Autzen House equipped with a computer, and are provided generell support services. For their part, Fellows are asked to contribute to intellectual life at OSU by giving presentations on their research projects in the form of lectures and working papers.
