Cornell University Society for the Humanities Postdoctoral Fellowship

Deadline: October 1

Length: 1 year (2020-21)

Comments: Focal theme: FABRICATION. “From the weaving of Penelope to the communal knitting of ‘pussy hats,’ fabrication is gendered and embodied, mythologized and politicized, turning domestic crafts (often ‘women’s work’) into acts of resistance. Through fashion, costume, adornment, and drag, fabrication is woven into questions of embodiment, gender, sexuality, performance, and transformation. Communities and identities can be crafted, agency conjured, systems of power refashioned.”
