Post Doc positions

Duke University’s Women’s Studies
program has two residential postdoctoral fellowships for the 2009-10 academic year opening. They are looking for:

…scholars engaged research on visual culture and racial and gendered formation. We are particularly interested in transnational, historical, and interdisciplinary projects that take an innovative approach to understanding the social, political, cultural and historical implications of visual culture, popular media, film and digital technologies. We welcome empirical, textual, and theoretical projects on a variety of visual media, and from a diverse array of academic fields, political and cultural contexts, and historical periods. The aim of the 2009-10 Women’s Studies Postdoctoral Program is to provide a space for generative intellectual conversations between visiting scholars and Duke faculty in different disciplines. At the center of these conversations will be a common interest in visual culture and racial and gendered formation. Successful proposals will therefore be interdisciplinary in nature and demonstrate the applicant’s knowledge of gender studies and critical race studies, as well as an expertise in visual culture as it pertains to their research project.

Applicants should be no more than five years past the PhD, and should have the PhD in hand by May 2009. Applications (including all letters of recommendations) must be received by November 17, 2008.
Send C.V., 5-page project proposal, writing sample (25 pages), 1-page course proposal (undergraduate), and 3 letters of recommendation to:

Ranjana Khanna, Director
Women’s Studies, Box 90760
210 East Duke Building, Durham NC, 27708
