Directed by Barry Lam, Associate Director of Marc Sanders Foundation, and Associate Professor of Philosophy, Vassar College and Host and Executive Producer of Hi-Phi Nation podcast. Philosophy in the Media is aimed at bringing high-quality philosophy to the general public.
The goal of our panel discussions is to bring stimulating philosophical issues to the public through the work of some of the best scholars on the topics. View the videos below.
The Marc Sanders Foundation is pleased to announce the Philosophy in Media initiative, funded jointly with the John T. Templeton Foundation. The initiative aims to increase the presence of philosophy in print, audio, and video media by training philosophers to write and produce for the public and by connecting philosophers to editors and commissioners in the media industry.
For the first stage of the initiative, up to 30 philosophers will be selected to be MSF Media Fellows via an open application process (details below). Selected fellows will receive workshop training, connections to industry professionals, and a $1500 honorarium. Ten fellows will be selected for each of the following:
Except for the Pacific APA workshop, travel, lodging, and meal assistance will be provided.
Successful MSF Media fellows will receive ongoing networking opportunities with professionals in the media industry and will be expected to pitch, develop, and publish public-facing media content in the months and years following the workshops.
Applicants at all career stages are eligible to apply, with the exception of undergraduate students. No current institutional affiliation is required, though due to budgetary restrictions we cannot fund international travel for candidates outside of North America. To apply, please send a CV and a letter of interest to email@example.com. LOI should include:
Applicants should indicate which workshop (op-ed, long-form magazine writing, or podcast) they are most interested in. They may apply for more than one focus, but should indicate their preferences in the LOI.
Links to one or two samples of the applicant’s relevant work are encouraged, but not required. Applicants will be selected on the premise of regular contribution to public conversation through either op-eds, long-form magazine writing, or podcasts. Topics and specializations are not restricted, but priority will be given to applicants who work, or plan to work, professionally or publicly on the nature, essence, and purposes of transcendent divinity; the nature of the human person (individually and collectively); human flourishing; and the fundamental structures, constituents, and laws of the natural world.
Applicants selected as MSF Media Fellows will be required to submit draft work prior to the workshops, such as an 800-word op-ed, a series of ideas for a featured magazine piece, or three minutes of audio.
Please send applications and inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sept. 30th, 2021.
