Philosophy in Media aims to identify and develop academically-trained philosophers to write, speak to, and produce for the general public in the major media market spaces. We are calling for applications for 2024 Media Fellows. Fellows will be academically-trained philosophers of all career stages who aim to write, speak to, and produce media for the general public in the form of op-eds and short essays, book reviews, longform essays or journalism, trade-book writing, or podcasting.

Fellows can be from all areas of philosophy, but must indicate both their professional areas of specialization and competence, as well as the topics or areas they would like to talk about when they speak to the public. Special consideration will be given to applicants whose professional or public-facing work focuses on race and racism, social justice, applied ethics of biology, technology, or other special sciences, and to applicants who are affiliated with HBCUs, Hispanic-serving institutions, Tribal colleges/universities, or underserved/under-resourced smaller regional or state schools.

Successful fellows will receive a $3000 stipend, and full room and board at one of our three media workshops, to be held between June 23rd-July 6th, 2024. One workshop will focus on op-ed/short essay and trade books, one on longform magazine writing, and one on podcast production and distribution. All will be led by esteemed media editors, producers, publishers, and agents.

Confirmed workshop leaders (details below) are: Joshua Rothman, Ideas Editor at The New Yorker; Larissa Macfarquhur, Staff Writer, The New Yorker; Latif Nasser, Host, WNYC’s Radiolab; Mia Lobel, former head of content at Pushkin Industries and Executive Producer of Revisionist History; James Ryerson, Opinion Editor at The New York Times; and others to be announced. Each workshop will be three days long.
