The Chair is in residence at the Kluge Center, in the Library of Congress.

The Library is particularly interested in scholars who are able and willing to speak beyond their disciplinary home in a way that is accessible and compelling to a broad audience.
In order to apply for the Blumberg Chair we ask for three pieces of information:
- A complete CV including your contact information and publications.
