Public Humanities Faculty Fellowships

The Public Humanities Hub (PHH) at UBC-Vancouver awards these faculty fellowships annually to support research excellence among humanities scholars in the Faculties of Arts, Law, and Education at UBC and to develop and highlight public-facing research in the humanities.


The Public Humanities Faculty Fellowships will provide course-releases to up to four full-time, tenured or tenure-track UBC faculty members (in research and educational leadership streams) in Arts, Law and Education to work on individual humanities-oriented research projects requiring dedicated release time. These awards will enable award holders to do their research in an interdisciplinary community of scholars and to explore ways to make their research more public-facing and/or to share their research more broadly. Each successful applicant will be granted one three-credit course-release. Please view the linked application documents below for more details.

Please submit PDF or Word files of your current UBC CV (updated to acknowledge past and on-going public-facing research activities) along with a completed application form, signed by your Department/Unit Head, through the link below.

While we consider all applications on public-facing humanities research, we are particularly interested in projects with a commitment to social justice.
