SAR Advanced Seminar: Women and Development in the Global South


Under a program supported by the Vera R. Campbell Foundation, SAR invites proposals for an Advanced Seminar that focuses on the circumstances of women in the developing world and offers paths to concrete, practical strategies for improving their health, prosperity, and general well-being.  Several of the seminar participants must be women scholars or scholars/practitioners from the developing world since one of the goals of the seminar is to foster professional linkages and the sharing of relevant experiences.  Proposals may address global problems or focus on specific regional questions.  Above all, the participants should be committed to producing practical improvements in the lives of women and workable proposals likely to achieve that end. 

The seminar will include a public lecture by a distinguished scholar with expertise in the seminar topic, followed by a roundtable discussion between the scholar and selected members of the seminar.  Applicants are encouraged to provide the names of one or two possible speakers. 

The deadline for applications is March 15, 2017.  More information can be found at
