Humanities Research Fellowships for the Study of the Arab World

The NYUAD Institute has embarked on a multi-year research fellowship program in the Humanities. This program aims to help create an energetic, multi-faceted research environment for the Humanities and the study of the Arab world at NYUAD's campus. To this end, both distinguished scholars and promising scholars are invited to apply for residential fellowships at the Institute. Fellows contribute to NYUAD's intellectual community through research and research-related activities, including sharing their work in progress with NYUAD faculty and students and participating in scholarly networks engaged in ongoing research centered at the Institute.

While open to scholars working in all areas of the Humanities, the program aims in particular to build a center of outstanding research capacity in the areas of the Humanities that are relevant for the study of the Arab world, its rich intellectual, religious, and scientific history, its cultural and artistic heritage as expressed in traditional and new media, and its interaction with other cultures in the past and present.

Scholars of Arabic culture and history will find it enriching to work alongside fellows who conduct research in related and adjacent fields. Scholarship furthered by this program is closely connected to the research profile of NYUAD's faculty in the Arts and Humanities; its Liberal Arts curriculum, with concentrations in History, Literature, Philosophy, the Arab Crossroads, and Museum Studies; related departments and research centers at NYU New York; and NYUAD's outreach program in the UAE.
