Fellowship Opportunities at Five College Women's Studies Research Center

A collaborative project of Amherst, Hampshire, Mount Holyoke, and
Smith Colleges and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst

The Center invites applications for its Research Associateships for
2003-2004 from scholars and teachers at all levels of the educational
system, as well as from artists, community organizers and political
activists, both local and international.Associates are provided with
offices in our spacious facility, computer access, library privileges,
and the collegiality of a diverse community of feminists. Research
Associate applications are accepted for either a semester or the academic
year. The Center supports projects in all disciplines so long as they
focus centrally on women or gender. Research Associateships are
non-stipendiary. However, international applicants may apply for one of
the two special one-semester Ford Associateships for Fall 2003 or Spring
2004, which offer a stipend of $12,000, plus a $3,000 housing/travel
allowance in return for teaching (in English) one undergraduate women's studies course at Smith College. Ford applicants' research should focus
on how the economics of globalization regulate gender, race, ethnicity,
nationality, class, and sexuality in Latin America, the Caribbean,
Africa, the Middle East, the former Soviet bloc, or Asia. We are
searching for two Ford Associate positions. For one position preference
will be given to those whose work focuses on sexuality in a global
context, including sex work, global sex trafficking, health issues,
international gay and lesbian activism and advocacy for sexual
minorities. For the second position, preference will be given to those
whose work focuses on cultural production and resistance, including
political performance, the transformation and use of international media,
and new technologies. Ford applicants need not be studying their own
region of origin.

Applicants for both programs should submit a project proposal (up to 4
pages), curriculum vitae, two letters of reference, and application cover
sheet. In addition, Ford applicants should submit a two-page description
of a women's studies course they are prepared to teach, which includes
their pedagogical goals and techniques.
