Each year the WGSS program at Northeastern University hosts a new group of 1-3 competitively selected scholars from the U.S. and abroad for a period of one academic year. The program is open to scholars (including ABD) of all disciplines who would enjoy working in an interdisciplinary environment that encourages critical feminist exploration addressing intersections of gender and sexuality with race, class, nation, religion, and a wide range of social justice issues. The WGSS program at Northeastern (www.northeastern.edu/wgss) has a vibrant feminist community, an active undergraduate minor, and an established graduate certificate. We collaborate closely with the Graduate Consortium in Womens Studies and are the current editorial home for the journal Signs (http://www.signsjournal.org).
Visiting Scholars provide their own financial support during the residency but have access to the Northeastern University library and to shared workspace as well as email privileges. They are invited to participate in all program events, to give presentations for the Northeastern campus community and the public on their ongoing works-in-progress, and to collaborate with colleagues through research clusters, reading groups, and affiliated seminars. There may also be opportunities for teaching should applicants be interested, though this is not a requirement of the position. Scholars are expected to be in residence from September 2016 to May 2017, but are welcome to remain in residence throughout the summer of 2017.
Applications should include current curriculum vitae, a 1-2 page letter describing the research activities the Scholar will conduct during the residency, and 2 letters of reference. We may, as the process develops, request writing samples as well. The deadline for applications is April 1, 2016. Unfortunately, late or incomplete applications cannot be considered. Send all materials by email attachment to:
Prof. Suzanna Walters, Director Womens, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program
If email is not convenient, the materials may be sent via postal mail to:
