The Unit is inviting UIUC faculty to apply for one of two different Unit for Criticism faculty fellowship programs. Both programs were created with the support of the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research in recognition of the Unit for Criticism's central role in fostering theoretical inquiry and interdisciplinary scholarship across the humanities, social sciences, and performing arts. Both programs will award two fellows with a total of $8,000 in unrestricted research funds along with the title of Criticism & Interpretive Theory (Junior/Senior) Research Fellow for a period of two years. 

The Unit for Criticism is proud to announce the winners of this year's Nicholson Graduate Fellowships. The fellowship covers the cost of tuition, accommodation, and travel to attend Cornell School of Criticism and Theory's six-week summer seminars in critical theory.

Many congratulations to Anirban Mukhopadhyay (ICR) and Lettycia Terrones (Information Sciences and Latino/a Studies)!
We look forward to learning about your experiences in the fall.
