UIC Institute for the Humanities

institute for the humanities post-doc fellowship

The Chancellor’s Initiative in the Humanities is intended to highlight the creative and cutting edge scholarship in the humanities at UIC.

Food studies highlights research and practice across disciplines within the Liberal Arts and across Colleges at UIC.   Issues such as hunger, obesity, food deserts, and school lunches, for example, link public health and nutrition to the study of human history, culture and behavior. How to tackle hunger in urban neighborhoods involves (among other fields) social policy, race and ethnic studies, urban sociology, and gender studies. Food Studies also links the local with the global as researchers seek solutions to the problems of food security and food aid, development and agricultural systems, and health and nutrition around the world. The Humanities are uniquely situated to explore historical and cultural contexts and to facilitate connections among researchers, students, and practitioners.

There is no current Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Food Studies competition.
