Faculty and Graduate Affiliates
Each year the Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities welcomes 8-12 faculty members and advanced graduate students as Institute Affiliates. The purpose of the Affiliate Program is to provide support for research and a space for cross-disciplinary discussion. Institute Affiliates form a critical part of our intellectual community, joining Institute Fellows, participants in the DIALOGUE Series, and the Distinguished Harris Lecturer in a variety of interdisciplinary events across the academic year.

Applications for 2013-14 affliates are now available. Please find links to download below. The deadline for 2013-14 applications is Friday, April 12. Please submit your application to firstname.lastname@example.org.
