This program is designed to provide additional research time for Princeton faculty members and to enhance the humanities community more broadly. Read more about the program and see a list of current and past Old Dominion Professors.

Eligibility and Application

Tenured faculty members in the humanities and humanistic social sciences are invited to apply by submitting a curriculum vitae and project proposal (3-4 pages), along with a copy of the leave request submitted to their department and the Dean of the Faculty.  Projects may involve ongoing scholarship or new, exploratory work. Previous Old Dominion Professors are not eligible for reappointment.  Appointments are made for a single academic year and may not be spread across two academic years.

Selection and Criteria

The Executive Committee of the Humanities Council evaluates proposals and makes recommendations to the Chair of the Council and the Dean of the Faculty.  In making its recommendations, the Committee is mindful not only of the intrinsic merits of the projects but also of the potential convergence among various proposals, the opportunities for intellectual exchange among Old Dominion Professors, and the candidate’s potential for sustaining cross-disciplinary discussion on campus during the professorship year.

Questions may be addressed to Kathleen Crown, Executive Director.
