The Global South Scholar-In-Residence program

Posted in Research Fellowships by harjant on February 21, 2010
The Global South Scholar-In-Residence programme is a programme which aims at developing an intellectual exchange between academics from Africa, Asia and Latin America and the Graduate Institute’s faculty. Three candidates per semester will be selected to spend one semester at the Institute in order to take advantage of the programme to update their teaching curricula, participate in teaching courses, further their research projects and contribute to enriching the intellectual life of the Institute. Priority will be given to university teachers – with a preference for women and junior academics – who will seek to apply the benefits of their stay at the Institute upon returning to their own institution.

Conditions for application:
– PhD holder working as a university teacher;
– Specialization in one of the domains or disciplines of the Institute:
International Affairs, Development Studies, International Law, International Economics, International Relations, International History and Politics.

Candidates satisfying the above criteria are invited to send an application with:
– a letter of motivation indicating the semester the candidate is applying for;
– a work plan detailing the activities to be completed during the time at the Institute;
– a curriculum vitae and a list of published works;
– Two letters of recommendation.

Deadline for applications: 31 March 2010 for the Autumn Semester.

Post Grad Research Project – University of Aberdeen Global Empires Post

Posted in Research Fellowships by harjant on February 21, 2010

In recent years across a range of disciplines, empire has become a paradigm for rethinking a globalized world. In this context, the University of Aberdeen is pleased to advertise a number of Masters (fees only) and Doctoral (fees and partial maintenance) Studentships within a broader interdisciplinary project on the ‘Ideas, Practices, and Impacts of Global Empires’. This brings together a supervisory team drawn from History, Anthropology, Hispanic Studies, International Relations, and the University’s museums. Within the project, we are interested in a number of themes: cross cultural encounters and collecting; material culture and visual representations of encounters; trade, migration, and empire; the ideologies of empires; and resistance and the ends of empires. Our areas of focus include: the British and American empires (especially Canada, the American South, South Asia, South Africa and the Antipodes); empires past and present in Latin America; Holy Roman Empire; modern German empires within and beyond Europe; Russia, especially Soviet Russia, including Russian informal empires; and competing imperialisms in East Asia. We invite applications from candidates with research interests (interdisciplinary or within the disciplines named above) touching one or more of these themes and areas.
