The Obermann Center for Advanced Studies at the University of Iowa welcomes applications for two academic year graduate dissertation fellowships with a stipend of $20,938 each (tuition scholarship up to $750 per semester, 50 percent of mandatory fees, and a contribution towards their health and dental insurance) for dissertation research, funded through the generosity of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.  The fellowships are for the 2022-2023 academic year and include participation in the Mellon-Sawyer Seminar, “Racial Reckoning and Social Justice through Comics” led by co-PIs Corey Creekmur (Cinematic Art, English, Gender, Women’s and Sexuality, Studies), Ana Merino (Spanish and Portuguese), and Rachel Williams (Gender Women’s, and Sexuality Studies & School of Art and Art History). The seminar is hosted by The Obermann Center for Advanced Studies and includes faculty fellows from across the university. The series is broadly interdisciplinary and includes faculty fellows working in the humanities, arts, social sciences, and professional schools.
