The Rockefeller Foundation Humanities Fellowships at the (http://www.folklife.si.edu/) are designed to help expand and refine theoretical frameworks for cultural heritage to include grassroots voices. The primary focus of the 2005-06 fellowships is the relation between cultural heritage and economic.
Rockefeller Fellows are humanities-oriented thinkers engaged in the work of academic institutions, public organizations, and cultural communities. Applicants for 2005-06 should be interested in developing ideas, prin- ciples, and frameworks for understanding the economic dimensions of the production, distribution, and/or consumption of cultural heritage. Applicants will be expected to focus their critical inquiry on such issues as cultural capital, intellectual property, community- based rights, cultural tourism, employment, and poverty reduction, and will demonstrate originality of approach and significant potential for making a contribution to the formulation of cultural heritage policy and practice.
A maximum of six fellowships per year will be awarded. All fellowships will include a stipend in addition to an allowance for travel to and from Washington, D.C. Applicants need not be U.S. citizens to be eligible, and approximately half the fellows will be drawn from outside the U.S. The fellowship term is six weeks to five months, between September 1, 2005, and July 31, 2006.
