The Jack and Doris Shadbolt Fellowship in the Humanities

Increasing visibility of the humanities

Jack Shadbolt, Winter Birds (detail), 1990, silkscreen print on paper. Bau-Xi Gallery.

Jack and Doris Shadbolt exemplified a vision of the humanities and arts whereby the work of the artist was seen as integrated into the natural and social worlds the artist inhabited.

Steering Committee

The stated goal of the Jack and Doris Shadbolt Endowment for the Humanities supporting the Jack and Doris Shadbolt Fellows in the Humanities is “to support resident Fellows who will be free to perform, create, research and otherwise interact with faculty and students on professional activities to enhance not only their own intellectual and creative horizons but that of the university and wider community as well”.

This goal will be met through the appointment of Fellows, and the support and promotion of the Fellows’ activities while in residence, which may include, but are not limited to, teaching, research, and community and public outreach.

The Shadbolt for the Humanities Fellowship Steering Committee is comprised of:

  • Laurel Weldon, Dean, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, Ex-officio
  • Steeve Mongrain, Associate Dean, Research, and Chair of the Committee
  • Clint Burnham, Fellowship Program Coordinator
  • June Scudeler, Assistant Professor, Department of Indigenous Studies and Department of Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies
  • Nadine Attewell, Director, Global Asia Program

Applications for 2024-2025 fellowships are now closed 

The application period for the 2025-2026 fellowships will be announced in Summer 2024.
