Digital Culture Opportunities in Norway, Ireland and Austria through the Fulbright Scholar Program

The Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program is currently seeking applications for awards for teaching and research within the areas of digital humanities and digital culture for the 2016-2017 academic year. The Council for International Exchange of Scholars administers the Fulbright Scholar Program on behalf of the United States Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Applicants must be U.S. citizens and the current competition will close on August 3, 2015.

The Digital Culture award in Norway allows the selected candidate to take part in the teaching and research activities of the Digital Culture program and the Digital Culture and Electronic Literature research groups in the Department of Linguistic, Literary and Aesthetic Studies at the University of Bergen. The scholar will teach three courses in digital culture and digital media aesthetics and evaluate student work. The award is open to academics with previous teaching experience. All teaching will be in English and proficiency in another language is not required.

Ireland offers an award entitled Facilitating Writing and Creative Practice Outputs in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. The selected scholar will work with students and faculty at the College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences (CACSSS) at University College Cork. The scholar will engage in the development and delivery of workshops on the production of creative and written outputs in the form of traditional and digital media. The award is open to academics and appropriately qualified professionals. 

Finally, Austria offers the Fulbright-Karl Franzens University Graz Visiting Professor in Cultural Studies award. The Faculty of Humanities is particularly interested in scholars whose teaching and research interests are primarily associated with cultural studies, including digital humanities. The award is open to faculty of all academic ranks with appropriate teaching experience.

Should your interests lie elsewhere, we offer further opportunities in Communications around the world.
