Postdoc - Black Feminist Studies and Arts

Duke University

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 intersections of Black Feminist Studies and the Arts, broadly defined. We seek candidates with interdisciplinary training in Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies, Black Studies, Critical Ethnic Studies, and/or Performance Studies, and with expertise in Black feminist studies. The fellow will have two primary responsibilities: (1) to help imagine and organize the 2023 Black Feminist Theory summer institute at Duke, and (2) to envision and facilitate a Black feminist creativity practice, performance, and/or lab (this could take multiple forms, ranging from an undergraduate course to art/performance workshops, depending on the fellow’s interests). These duties will take roughly half the fellow's time, with the other half left open for the fellow’s research. The fellow will receive full support for making connections with other scholars and joining campus intellectual life, as well as mentorship from GSF faculty.

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; 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.

Please submit applications electronically by March 14, 2022 through AcademicJobsOnline.org
