Critical Studies Fellowship

Cranbrook Academy of Art, a preeminent graduate school of art, design and architecture seeks applications for residential teaching fellowships for the 2017-2018 academic year.  Possibilities exist for one-semester or two-semester appointments. The Academy’s Critical Studies Fellowship program brings scholars from a wide range of fields to work closely with Cranbrook graduate students to explore active intersections of contemporary theory and culture studies with visual art and design practice. 

Art and Design in the Anthropocene

For the 2017-2018 fellowships, the Academy is seeking scholar-educators working in the fields of post-humanism, environmental activism, geo aesthetics, ecocritical theory, and the systems and structures of fusing technology, nature, culture, and bio-politics.  We invite proposals on the impact of human activity on the earth and its effects on creative practice – from materials, thinking, future imaginaries, sustainability- and the geological underpinnings of contemporary culture.

Candidates must hold an advanced degree in their field (MA or higher, PhD preferred), have graduate-level teaching experience and an interest in the links between their work and a visual art/craft/design studio practice. The Fellow will have both formal and informal time with students, including public lectures, discussion groups, studio visits and critiques. Opportunities also exist for creative curatorial, research or other projects while in residence.  This position is well-suited to an emerging professional, although all levels are invited to apply. Fellows must reside on campus and be free from other professional duties during the semester.  International applicants are welcome to apply. Please note:  we are not seeking candidates who are primarily studio artists or designers or a proposal of a studio-based series.
