William S. Vaughn Visiting Fellowship

(LT)

“Diagnosis in Context:  Culture, Politics, and the Construction of Meaning.”The Robert Penn Warren Center for the Humanities will host a year-long interdisciplinary faculty seminar to explore the types of work that medical diagnoses perform.  Modern medicine typically defines diagnosis as the act of identifying or naming disease, with disease understood as a pathophysiological condition that produces characteristic symptoms and follows a predictable path.  But such straightforward statements hide more than they reveal. Specifically, they leave unexplored the power of language and labels to create imagined boundaries between and among populations—boundaries that can affect the lived experience of disease and disability as well as the allocation of resources.We invite applications from scholars in all disciplines whose lively presence will help to focus our work and stimulate discussions. We anticipate that the successful applicant will have completed the terminal degree in her/his filed at the time of application and will have a record of scholarly publication. The seminar meets weekly and will allow the visiting fellow ample time to pursue a major research project. The combined interests of the visiting fellow and the Vanderbilt faculty fellows will determine the form and content of seminar discussions.The Fellow is provided with a spacious office within the Center’s own building. The fellowship pays a stipend in the upper $50,000.  The fellowship also provides up to $2,00 in moving expenses.

Grants for America’s Media Makers support projects in a range of formats, including interactive digital media and radio and television programs that engage the public in the humanities and explore stories, ideas, and beliefs in order to deepen our understanding of our lives and our world.

NEH offers two categories of grants for media projects: development grants and production grants. Development grants enable media producers to collaborate with scholars to develop humanities content and format and to prepare programs for production.
