The Humanities in the World Postdoctoral Fellows program provides up to four scholars a two year residency at Penn State. Postdoctoral Fellows can come from any area in traditional humanities fields, and are selected based on their scholarly excellence as well as a demonstration of how their work bears on issues of social concern. Fellows are afforded office space in Ihlseng Cottage and support for ongoing research projects within the Penn State community. Since 2021, two of these positions per cycle are associated with the Just Transformations Initiative, dedicated to building and sustaining diverse communities in higher education. Information on this initiative can be found here.
