Proposals for Faculty Fellowships in the Upcoming Seminar

The Pembroke Center invites Brown faculty to apply for faculty research fellowships for 2016-17. The fellowships support the participation of Brown faculty members in the Pembroke Seminar, an interdisciplinary research seminar that meets weekly throughout the academic year. To enable Brown faculty members to participate in the 2016-2017 seminar, funds will be made available, on a per-course replacement basis, to the faculty members' home departments. Selected faculty fellow participants receive release-time from one course.

Participants in the Pembroke Seminar include Pembroke Center post-doctoral fellows, Brown faculty, visiting faculty affiliates, graduate and undergraduate student fellows, and distinguished visitors. In 2016-17, the seminar will focus on “Anti-War! Theaters of War/Politics of Refusal” under the direction of Bonnie Honig, Professor of Modern Culture and Media and Political Science. (see full description). The seminar will meet on Wednesdays from 10:00 am - 12:30 pm. Faculty Fellows may participate in either semester of the seminar, though many opt to attend both semesters.

All Brown campus-based full-time faculty members are encouraged to apply. An application package should include a current curriculum vitae and a project proposal (1,000 words) that describes the applicant's research. Faculty participants should have an active interest in the seminar's topic, but the research project may be in any related field and need not directly address the topic.

The deadline for receipt of proposals is January 14, 2016.

Materials should be submitted to:
