UNH Center for the Humanities Seeking a distinguished visiting scholar
The University of New Hampshire’s Center for the Humanities seeks a distinguished visiting scholar to help reinvigorate the spirit and purpose of the James H. and Claire Short Hayes Professor of the Humanities Chair, a generously endowed faculty chair meant to concentrate on New Hampshire’s history, culture, and government and to be a focal point within the University for research and teaching. To this end, the visiting scholar position will have two objectives: 1) to conduct compelling, publicly engaged humanities research in New Hampshire and 2) to convene workshops, communal conversations, and other occasions with UNH faculty to help build capacity for future Hayes Chair applications. Salary support, research funds, and programming funds will be provided to the visiting scholar. The terms of the visiting residency can be designed collaboratively with the scholar and the Center for the Humanities, where the Hayes Chair is housed, but would need to include a meaningful amount of time engaging with the university community on site at the UNH Durham campus.
