Post-Doctoral Humanities Fellowships in Comparative Race and Ethnicity Studies (22-23)
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||Illinois, United States|
DePaul University’s Social Transformation Research Collaborative (STRC) invites applications for a two-year Post-Doctoral Humanities Fellowships in Comparative Race and Ethnicity Studies, to begin July 2022. The STRC (funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation) is hosted by the Center for Black Diaspora and the Center for Latino Research, and centered on key programs that focus on the historical trajectories, legacies and cultures of people of color: African and Black Diaspora Studies, Latin American and Latino Studies, Global Asian Studies, and Critical Ethnic Studies. The Collaborative supports research in the humanities as a source of justice and healing for communities historically shaped by, and continuously facing, racism, violence, and dispossession.
The Comparative Race and Ethnicity Post-Doctoral Fellowships also reflect DePaul’s University's Vincentian mission, which includes a scholarly commitment to the areas of race, equality, social justice and advocacy for historically oppressed and underserved populations. Fellowships are particularly designed to support diversification of the academy through structured mentoring and time for writing and scholarly activity, pedagogical development, and hands-on career experience for newly-minted scholars working in fields focused on the histories and cultures of people of color.
The Fellow will be housed within the Dept. of African and Black Diaspora Studies. The Fellow will teach three humanities-based courses per year, cross-listed as appropriate. Specific courses and scheduling will be determined in consultation with the Fellow’s department chair. In addition, Fellows will be expected to contribute to the Collaborative’s discourse around its annual theme as speakers, presenters, and attendees at the Summer Institute for incoming students, an Annual Convening for the public, and Collaborative colloquia and other events. Collaborative Fellows will also be invited to participate in bi-weekly check-ins with mentor faculty as well as quarterly professional development workshops hosted by the Collaborative.
Eligibility is restricted to humanities scholars who have received their PhD in Comparative Race and Ethnicity Studies, Black/Africana Studies, Latin American/Latino Studies, Ethnic Studies, or related fields no earlier than 2018 and who will have the PhD in hand by May 2022. Appointment will be for the academic year 2022-2023, renewable to a second year, contingent upon satisfactory performance.
The Fellow will receive an academic year (10 month) salary and two months of summer compensation (starting in July 2022) to support teaching preparation, research, and summertime Collaborative activities. DePaul will also provide a moving expenses budget, office space and modest funds for travel and research. This is a benefits-eligible position.
