Participating faculty members work together with partnered ASJ artist fellows to design a project that reflects on racial or other inequities, and to embed their project into one of the faculty member’s existing syllabi on any topic. 

ASJ Fellows receive a summer stipend and a salary in the fall, and each faculty/ASJ Fellow pair receives funding to cover materials and other expenses for their project. Fellows decide together how to incorporate their project into their syllabus, as well as the nature and frequency of the ASJ Fellow’s engagement with the class.

Emory faculty from all divisions of the university are encouraged to apply. Artist applicants should be local to Atlanta and demonstrate an interest in advancing racial and social justice through their work. The Arts and Social Justice Fellowship program will determine faculty and artist pairings. 

We anticipate courses to be in person for Fall 2021 with the understanding of the possibility of courses remaining online.

Please note that we have a mandatory meet and greet orientation on Monday, June 28, 2021 and monthly meetings on a weekday evening for the duration of the program. There will be a culminating project showcase and community conversation in December. Official dates and times will be shared with invited participants.

Interviews with selected applicants will take place the week of June 14, 2021. Accepted faculty and artists will be notified on Monday, June 21, 2021.
