Now Accepting Applications for the School for Advanced Research 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.  Seminars focused on broad policy issues will be judged according to whether practical implementation measures are included in the discussion.


The seminar chair(s) should plan to give a public presentation providing a broad overview of the project.  This presentation will be recorded and made available on SAR’s YouTube channel.   


The deadline for applications is April 30, 2019.  For more information and how to apply: https://sarweb.org/seminars/campbell-seminar/.
