Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship in Music
Academic Years 2021-2023
Cornell University, Ithaca, NY

With the sponsorship of the Society for the Humanities, the Department of Music invites applications for a two-year Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship position beginning August 1, 2021. The Fellowship offers a stipend of $55,000/year.

The Department of Music invites applications from scholars working on music and Blackness across Africa and the African Diaspora. While the specific area of specialization is open, we are interested in work that challenges geographic and disciplinary boundaries and that explicitly engages critical race theory and Black studies in innovative ways, through any combination of historical, ethnographic, and analytical methods. The successful candidate will teach two courses per year during their appointment. We expect the Fellow will be able to offer undergraduate music courses and interdisciplinary graduate seminars on Blackness and anti-Blackness in the African diaspora and/or in the specific context of African American experience. The Fellow will participate equally in the Department of Music and the Society for the Humanities’ cohort and will be expected to participate in Department and Society events. Postdoctoral Fellows teach one course per semester. Candidates should propose an introductory, 2000-level course and an advanced, 4000-level course. These courses should be conceived as seminars and can reflect the fellow’s particular research interests.
