THEME: Connections and Flows: Water, Energy, and Digital Information in the Global South
From June 7-21, 2014, Brown University (in Providence, RI, USA) will host Brown International Advanced Research Institutes (BIARI), which convenes participants from around the world to address pressing global issues through collaboration across academic, professional, and geographic boundaries. Applications are invited from early-career scholars and practitioners, especially those based at institutions in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe, to participate in intensive, residential two-week institutes at Brown University’s Watson Institute for International Studies. The four institutes are convened by Brown University professors, and feature lectures, seminars, and workshops led by distinguished international guest faculty. This highly selective, residential program gives participants a unique opportunity to interact with their global peers and benefit from Brown University’s world-class campus and facilities.
About Connections and Flows: Water, Energy, and Digital Information in the Global South
Water, energy, and digital information are key resources for all societies in the 21st century, demanding a range of products, services, and infrastructure to provide secure, equitable distribution and delivery. Operating in a studio format built around participants’ ongoing projects, and with input from visiting practitioners and scholars, this institute has two main goals: first, to explore emerging concepts in
engineering, design, and development through a focus on platforms, prototypes, and projects; and second, to delve into the implications of their design and development in society. Applications for this innovative interdisciplinary institute are welcome from young engineers and engineering faculty, as well as from engineering education policymakers and those working in agriculture, environmental studies, urban studies, or related fields.
Please forward this announcement to your collaborators, colleagues, advanced PhD students, and other appropriate networks of scholars from the Global South who work in the area of Ethnic Conflict and Inequality, to encourage them to apply.
Application closes January 31, 2014.
