Fellowship opportunity at Stone Summer Theory Institute, SAIC - Chicago

The Stone Summer Theory Institute is an intensive week of seminars, lectures, and panel discussions, which will be published as a series of books involving over 300 scholars. It is held each July in Chicago. Fellows are not expected to present papers, but are asked to do up to 2,000 pages of advance readings for the seminars.

This year's theme is 'Beyond the Aesthetic and the Anti-Aesthetic,' arguably one of the central puzzles of contemporary art practice. The choice between continuations of modernism (with its aesthetic values) and the various kinds of postmodernism that privilege politics, gender, identity, and other issues, remains a formative one for young artists, and continues to create deep divisions in the teaching and practice of art.

Faculty include Hal Foster, Jay Bernstein, and Eve Melzter.

Places are available for fifteen Fellows, and funds are available for travel and accommodation. Full information about applying is available on the website.

The deadline is April 15, 2010; successful applicants will be notified April 20. 

To apply, send a curriculum vitae, a writing sample (published or unpublished), and a two-page letter describing your knowledge and interest in the subject, to:

conference at stonesummertheoryinstitute.org 

The materials should be in a single pdf or Word file. Please put "Application for the Stone Summer Theory Institute" in the subject line of the email, and be sure to include your email address and full contact information in the application itself. (There is no separate application form: the Word or pdf file comprises the entire application.)
