EH Research Professor : call for applications and Dr. Mason Dentinger lecture

Environmental Humanities Program has opened the next round of applications for the Research Professor award.  All faculty members (tenured, tenure-track, career-line) who wish to pursue environmental research from humanities perspectives are encouraged to apply.

EH Research Professor benefits include:

  • One-course release per year
  • Annual research funding of $1,500

The EH Research Professor is supported by generous funding from the Kendeda Foundation and our endowment. We will offer one professorship for 2023-2024, with the expectation of renewal for 2024-25.

The Dean will notify applicants of a final decision before the new year.
