The University of San Francisco Center for the Pacific Rim
Visiting Scholars Program
The University of San Francisco’s Center for the Pacific Rim is pleased to announce the call for applications for its visiting scholar program. This new program is designed to welcome domestic and international scholars to be in residence at the Center for 3-6 months during which time scholars will pursue independent research and interact with USF's faculty, students, and staff during the 2014-15 academic year. Faculty on sabbatical are particularly encouraged to apply.
In this first year of the program, the Center is pleased to offer a small number of travel grants to assist chosen scholars with their travel and lodging expenses (reimbursable per USF travel and research policies). To be considered for a travel grant, applications must be received by April 1, 2014.
University of San Francisco welcomes applications from active academic researchers and university faculty members in the humanities and social sciences whose proposed research meets the following criteria:
•Research is relevant to the study of the Asia Pacific (especially Greater China, Japan, Korea, India, and the Philippines)
•Preference will be given to applicants whose research is transnational, border-crossing, or comparative in nature
•Research is in one of the following fields: history, literature, philosophy, religious studies, art history, political science, sociology, and anthropology
