ASPI Faculty Fellow in the Arts and Humanities

Technology continues to have an enormous impact on the modern world, affecting how we live, work, communicate, learn, engage in the political process, and live. The relationship between technology and culture is an integral part of our environment, our social interactions, our government, cultural and educational institutions, the arts, and nearly all other aspects of life.

The study of arts and humanities brings to the study of technology a vital critical and interdisciplinary lens that has animated and complicated existing scholarly and creative uses of technology. The Autonomous Systems Policy Institute (ASPI) at Syracuse University seeks to create an avenue for greater trans-disciplinary collaboration between the arts and humanities and the study of technology. As a result, each year ASPI will support a faculty fellow in the arts and humanities.

We invite applicants from all fields in the arts and humanities including but not limited to, philosophy, religion, literature, art, art history, music, music history, film, Indigenous studies, Black studies, environmental studies, women’s and gender studies. This fellowship is primarily focused on providing the space and opportunity for faculty members in the humanities whose research intersects with the study of technology to develop their work, a potential syllabus, and curate a conversation that focuses on their fields of study.

In addition to a course buyout for a semester, the faculty fellow will be expected to:

  • Participate in ASPI events and activities.
  • Design a course that will be cross listed with ASPI.
  • Host a conversation with a scholar on a topic of their choosing that examines the intersection of technology and the humanities.
  • Become a member of the review committee to evaluate fellowship applications for the following year.

Interested faculty can submit their application packet, which includes a curriculum vitae and a 1–2-page description of their research, by email to by April 30 of each year.
