Interdisciplinary Humanities Center (IHC) Graduate Affiliates Program (GAP), Deadline July 15

Designed to encourage academic professionalization, the IHC Graduate Affiliates Program will foster a community of graduate student scholars to engage in dialogue and collaboration around the events of the 2013-14 IHC series The Value of Care. In the course of the academic year, graduate students will exercise their skills in communicating with scholars from diverse fields about points of intellectual convergence and difference. 

The 2013-14 cohort of GAP scholars will collectively develop and plan a public event for the Value of Care series; they will participate in four additional Value of Care events and two workshops designed to prepare them to engage with featured speakers in an interdisciplinary context.  

GAP scholars will receive a stipend of $1,000. To apply, please submit a CV and letter of application to by July 15, 2013. Please feel free to contact IHC Associate Director Emily Zinn with any questions about this program.

About the IHC’s Value of Care series:

Recognizing that human interdependence is both enlivening and precarious, the Interdisciplinary Humanities Center’s 2013-14 series The Value of Care seeks to explore the normative values and emotional investments of care. The series will address the many ways that cultures have organized themselves around this constant of human life, how they have fostered the bonds of care that enable individuals and groups to survive and thrive.

To respond to the needs of others and to rely on others are twin conditions of human interdependence. The Value of Care will consider how individual, group, and institutional practices of care have the potential to legitimate those whose needs are well-served, or to reinforce existing social inequities and further disenfranchise those deprived of care. Other potential topics include the ethical positions and philosophical viewpoints that organize approaches to care; the ways in which the politics of gender, race, class, and sexual orientation structure caring practices and the perceptions of caregivers; the interpersonal and psychosocial dynamics of care; and care as a creative and transformative force.
