The ISI has chosen the theme "Secrecy, Publicity, Privacy, Security" for its 2015-16 faculty seminar. In taking on these terms, the ISI is drawn to a quadrant of concerns that may be read in various combinations and various ways. In this, we are of course engaged with the present, from issues of surveillance and the dark rooms of power, to practices of unmasking its operations. But we are also interested in these questions across various times, places, disciplines, creative practices, and approaches. Secrecy, publicity, privacy and security are key concepts that apply in a wide range of environments, making their discussion especially well suited for an interdisciplinary investigation.
We encourage applications by faculty across campus, no matter their discipline. As many former ISI fellows will attest, the ISI experience is at once integrative, creative, scholarly, collegial, and lively. All our selected fellows will receive a $1500 research allowance. For a full description of the theme and guidelines on how to apply, please continue below. Applications are due at firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, March 2, 2015.
