Stanford departments, programs, and research centers and institutes are each eligible to nominate one candidate for a residency for the following academic year through their chair or director. Preference will be given to departments, programs and research centers that did not host an FSI/Humanities Center visitor during the previous year.
Nominating units are asked to commit to hosting at least one activity (and preferably more) with the candidate, should the nomination be successful. Examples of such activities include: student workshops, faculty discussion sessions, departmental lectures, participation in departmental colloquia, etc. Visitors may not offer courses for credit.
Selections will be made by a committee convened by the Humanities Center and FSI. Especially appropriate are candidates who are finishing a project and are in a position to share the results with colleagues on campus.
