From July 29 through August 7, 2022, investigative teams from the six partnering universities will gather in Pretoria, South Africa, for an eight-day Institute addressing Climate Justice and Problems of Scale. Sessions will address the theme of the Institute using a broad range of perspectives and methodologies. The Institute will consist of plenary lectures, workshops, site visits, and artistic events. Early career scholars will receive mentoring from senior scholars. The working language for the Institute will primarily be English.

We invite applications from Early Career Scholars based in a range of humanities disciplines including, but not limited to, environmental humanities, anthropology, audio-visual arts, creative and performing arts, cultural studies, digital humanities, Indigenous and ethnic studies, film studies, gender studies, geography, health humanities, history, law, literature, peace studies, philosophy, and religious studies.

Application Requirements: An applicant must be either an advanced graduate student (in or near candidacy) or within ten years of receiving a Ph.D. (and, if working at a university with a tenure system, non-tenured). The competition is open to anyone from anywhere in the world whose universities are affiliated with CHCI. (Interested scholars from universities not currently affiliatedwith CHCI are encouraged to inquire into possibilities of institutional affiliation

Successful applicants will have their travel to, accommodation, and food at the Institute fully funded, with the expectation that they will participate actively in the Institute.
