Extended Deadline for Postdoctoral Fellowship Application

Wednesday, January 15, 2020

The Program in Latino/a Studies in the Global South at Duke University (LSGS) invites applications for a one-year postdoctoral fellowship, renewable for a second year, to begin in August 2020.
 
We seek interdisciplinary scholars with a comparative, innovative, and transnational approach, grounded in U.S. Latina, Latino, and Latinx literary history. Research interests may include any––or a combination––of the following areas: the nineteenth-century translinguistic Americas; comparative U.S. literary history; Spanish as an “American” language; print culture and the global south; historical agency and memory; ethnoracial formations; gender and sexuality; citizenship; empire; migratory flows; hemispheric studies; and related topics. LSGS is particularly interested in scholars who move beyond traditional studies of communities bounded by a singular national origin.
 
The successful candidate will be housed in the Department of Romance Studies and receive a salary of $50,000, plus benefits; teach two courses per year; pursue research; and participate in the development of public and intellectual programming in Latino/a Studies as well as the Department of Romance Studies at Duke. To receive full consideration, please submit the following application materials by 15 February 2020:
 
(i) letter of intent;
(ii) curriculum vitae;
(iii) research proposal;
(iv) outline of possible course offerings;
(v) 20 pp. article-length writing sample;
(vi) graduate transcript; and
(vii) three confidential letters of recommendation
 
Please submit application materials electronically to:  https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/15608
 
Applicants must have completed their doctorates by the Fellowship start date.
