The Indiana University Summer Language Workshop (June 9 – August 1, 2014) continues to accept applications for intensive study of Arabic (begins June 2), Hindi-Urdu, Hungarian, Mongolian, Persian, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Swahili, Tatar, Turkish, and Uzbek on the Bloomington campus.
Applications for Summer FLAS to fund study in the Workshop are also still being accepted by IU’s Russian and East European Institute and Inner Asian and Uralic National Resource Center (contingent upon availability of additional funds) for Hungarian, Mongolian, Persian, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Tatar, Turkish, and Uzbek.
All students pay in-state tuition and earn up to two semesters of (transferable) academic credit.
The Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance, and Abolition (GLC), part of the MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies at Yale University, invites applications for a residential fellowship from scholars and public intellectuals to study the fundamental origins and circumstances surrounding debt bondage, forced labor, human trafficking, and other forms of modern day slavery. Traditional academics as well as writers/researchers without academic institutional affiliation are encouraged to apply. The Center is offering one fellowship in 2014-15.
The newly launched Journal of Video Ethnography (JVE) is a venture of DePaul University's Social Science Research Center. JVE is the first ever peer-reviewed journal of ethnographic films and videos. The aim of this journal is to advance the social scientific use of video/film as a method for exploring human society, systems, and cultures and as a medium for presenting the findings of those explorations. Our primary objective is to establish a mechanism for the peer review of films that have social science ideas at their core. We expect that most submissions will come from academics who make films.
