ACLS logo
The quite popular American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) Fellowships support research applications in all disciplines of the humanities and humanistic social sciences. Intended as salary replacement to help scholars devote six to twelve continuous months to full-time research and writing, the fellowships are portable and tenable at the fellow’s home institution, abroad, or at another appropriate site.

In this one hour workshop, led by Kari Whittenberger-Keith of UWM's Office of Sponsored Programs, we will review the application guidelines, discuss strategies for developing strong applications, and review other upcoming humanities funding opportunities.

Even if you are not intending to apply this cycle, familiarizing yourself with the ACLS format and guidelines can help you prepare to make other humanities-oriented applications (such as with the NEH) throughout the year. And even if you not sure that the ACLS is for you or you've never applied for a grant before, if you need some dedicated research time, this workshop is for you.

Anthropocene Feminism book cover
The Center for 21st Century Studies is excited to announce the publication of our latest volume of essays with the University of Minnesota Press, Anthropocene Feminism.

What does feminism have to say to the Anthropocene? How does the concept of the Anthropocene impact feminism? This book is a daring and provocative response to the masculinist and techno-normative approach to the Anthropocene so often taken by technoscientists, artists, humanists, and social scientists. By coining and, for the first time, fully exploring the concept of “anthropocene feminism,” it highlights the alternatives feminism and queer theory can offer for thinking about the Anthropocene.

Edited by former C21 director Richard Grusin, the volume originates from our 2014 conference of the same name.

In addition to an introduction by Grusin, the volume includes essays by Stacy Alaimo, Rosi Braidotti, Joshua Clover and Juliana Spahr, Claire Colebrook, Dehlia Hannah and Natalie Jeremijenko, Myra J. Hird and Alexander Zahara, Lynne Huffer, Elizabeth A. Povinelli, and Jill S. Schneiderman.

Anthropocene Feminism is available from the website of the University of Minnesota Press, or from your favorite online or bricks-and-mortar bookstore. Get yours today!
