NEH Fellowships, 2001-2002

Deadline: May 1, 2000

The National Endowment for the Humanities announces the competition
for Fellowships for 2001-2002. These Fellowships provide
opportunities for individuals to pursue advanced work in the
humanities. Applicants may be faculty or staff members of colleges or
universities or of primary or secondary schools. Scholars and writers
working independently, in institutions such as museums, libraries, and
historical associations, or in institutions with no connection to the
humanities also are eligible to apply.

NEH Fellowships support a variety of activities. Projects may
contribute to scholarly knowledge, to the advancement of teaching, or
to the general public understanding of the humanities. Award
recipients might eventually produce scholarly articles, a book-length
treatment of a broad topic, an archaeological site report, a
translation, an edition, a database, or some other scholarly tool.

CITIZENSHIP: Applicants should be U.S.citizens, native residents of
U.S. jurisdictions, or foreign nationals who have been legal
residents in the U.S. or its jurisdictions for at least three years
immediately preceding the application deadline.

ELIGIBILITY: The NEH Fellowships program has two categories:
University Teachers and College Teachers/Independent Scholars.
Applicants select a category depending on the institution where they
are employed or on their status as Independent Scholars. Applicants
whose positions change near the application deadline should select the
category that corresponds to their employment status during the
academic year before the deadline. Applicants whose professional
training includes a degree program must have received the degree or
completed all requirements for it by the application deadline.
Persons seeking support for work leading to a degree are not eligible
to apply, nor are active candidates for degrees. Further information
is available in the printed guidelines and on the Endowment's web

TENURE AND STIPENDS: Tenure must cover an uninterrupted period of from
six to twelve months. The earliest beginning date is January 1, 2001,
and the latest is the start of the spring term of the 2001-2002
academic term, or April 1, 2002 for those who are not teachers.
Tenure periods for teachers must include at least one complete term of
the academic year. A stipend of $30,000 will be awarded to those
holding fellowships for a grant period of nine months to twelve
months. A stipend of $24,000 will be awarded to those holding
fellowships for a grant period of six months to eight months.

SUBMISSION OF APPLICATIONS: All applications must be postmarked on or
before May 1, 2000. Please note that the Endowment does not accept
applications submitted by fax or e-mail. Applicants will be notified of
the decisions on their applications by mid-December 2000.

NEW THIS YEAR: The 2001-2002 guidelines include two important Fellowships
program changes:
1. Awardees are free to hold other major fellowships or grants
concurrently with the NEH Fellowship. 
2. Recent fellowship holders will receive the same consideration as other
applicants during the evaluation process.

Message 2: Intensional logic

Subject: Intensional logic

For the last fifteen years or so, I have been using to my own
satisfaction a simple extension of a proof method of Quine in order to
solve problems in intensional logic. Although it is so simple, I have
never seen any mention of anything like it in the literature, though
that may just be due to my ignorance or laziness.

Therefore I am publishing it on the net in order to get some feedback,
and spread it around to others who might be interested. If I have just
reinvented the wheel, I will withdraw and make due
acknowledgements. Any comments, constructive or destructive, will be
most welcome.
