Kluge Fellowship in Digital Studies

Friday, November 15, 2013 (All day)

The John W. Kluge Center at the Library of Congress announces a new Kluge Fellowship in Digital Studies for research related to the impact of the digital revolution on society, culture, and international relations. The application deadline is November 15, 2013.

The new Kluge Fellowship in Digital Studies is open to scholars and practitioners worldwide for deep, empirically-grounded research into the consequences of the digital revolution on how people think, how society functions, and on international relations. Proposals may also explore and analyze emerging trends and new phenomena that may generate consequential changes in the future. All proposals must state the importance of the research to fundamental thinking about the human condition.

Conducting full time research on-site at the Library of Congress, up to three (3) Fellows will be expected to engage in scholarly research on the digital revolution’s impact on how we think, how we live, and how we relate to one another. A stipend of $4,200 per month for a period of up to 11 months supports the Fellows. Scholars should include a discussion of how the resources of the Library of Congress will inform the intended research; scholars are encouraged to think creatively of how the Library’s collections may be used.
