The Institute will cover both historical and contemporary themes related to Hume's philosophy. The Institute has two goals. (1) By examining a variety of Hume's contributions, we hope to give faculty and graduate student participants an expansive context and diverse resources to facilitate their own teaching and research projects on the Institute's themes. (2) By studying topics of both traditional and contemporary interest, we aim to offer participants a sample of the engagement of a classical Enlightenment theory with present issues, an approach that they might consider adapting to their own projects.
College and university teachers, and advanced graduate students with an interest in Hume, are encouraged to apply. Those employed by museums, libraries, historical societies, and other organizations are also eligible.
A stipend of $3,450 will help to defray the cost of travelling to and participating in the 4-week Institute (stipends are taxable income). At least five of the Institute's thirty spaces are reserved for non-tenured/non-tenure-track faculty. Three Institute spaces may be reserved for advanced graduate students. The preference is for a varied representation of backgrounds, stages of career, perspectives, and disciplines among the Institute's Funded Summer Scholars.
Details on how to apply are posted on the Institute webpage. Applications open January 1, and the application deadline is March 1, 2022.
