Long-Term Visiting Fellows
Each year distinguished writers, artists and scholars spend a semester visiting at Princeton, teaching one course. Nominations are invited from chairs of humanities departments and may be made jointly with interdisciplinary programs and committees under the Council’s umbrella.
The Belknap Visiting Fellowships bring distinguished practitioners to teach for a semester; the Humanities Council encourages proposals for these visitors to co-teach with a faculty member in a humanities department.
Nominations for visiting Long-Term Fellows are invited from chairs of humanities departments and may be made jointly with interdisciplinary programs. Departments seeking information about nomination procedures should contact Kathleen Crown, executive director.
Long-Term Fellows “in residence” take an unpaid leave from their home institutions and relocate to Princeton for a semester to teach (or co-teach with a current faculty member) one course. Academics who live within commuting distance (eg, NJ, NYC, Philadelphia) are eligible for “commuting” fellowships.
The Council will follow University guidance on hiring and restricted funds, and any appointments and offers would require approval of the Provost and Dean of the faculty.

Nominations will be accepted in Fall 2021.
