From the posting:

The Center for Humanistic Inquiry at Amherst College, in its inaugural year, seeks three one-year full-time CHI Fellows from varied disciplines to explore the theme of “Mattering Lives.”  Our theme resonates with urgent ongoing cultural and political conversations about the ways in which lives matter—that is, take on meaning and value—in differing ways.  It also implicates emerging questions about the nature and encoding of the human; of our materiality in relation to other forms of life, technology, and ways of being; and of the ways in which life and lives are made manifest through various forms of representation, media, and imaginative culture.  We invite applicants from scholars whose research takes up some aspect of our theme from a humanistic perspective.
