Postdoc - Feminist Theory & Imperialism
The Duke University Program in Gender, Sexuality & Feminist (GSF) Studies invites applications for a one-year residential postdoctoral fellowships for the 2022-2023 academic year.
This fellow will focus on the 2022-2023 theme year, Feminist Theory & Imperialism. We seek candidates with interdisciplinary training and research in Gender, Sexuality and Feminist Studies, Queer and Sexuality Studies, Decolonization Studies, Race & Imperialism Studies, Indigenous Studies, and allied fields. We welcome applicants interested in the relationships between Anglo-American feminist theory and imperialism in its many modern historical and contemporary modalities. We are especially interested in scholars who have taken seriously non-Anglo-American sites of feminist and sexuality theorization, including in socialist and communist settings, as well as feminist critiques that originate from Global South sites. Research may examine cultural, economic and intellectual imperialism, which is often the focus of feminist and sexual theorization and critique in many parts of the world, as well as leftist movements as sites of feminist and sexual theorizing and critique. Beyond the above, research areas may include militarization and permanent war, settler-colonialism, labor movements, comparative racialization, racial capitalism, sexual criminalization, border policing and citizenship, and ecological entanglements in relation to feminist theory & imperialism.
The fellow is expected to participate in an in-person themed postdoctoral and graduate student seminar in fall 2022 and teach an undergraduate course in spring 2023. The fellowship includes a stipend, health insurance, and office space. Applicants should have PhD in hand by July 1, 2022 and be no more than five years past the PhD. In addition to a letter of application, include a brief course proposal (1-2 pages); a 1,000-word research project proposal with 1-page bibliography; a writing sample (no more than 25 pages); a C.V.; names and contact information for references.
