Mellon Visiting Assistant Professorship in Comparative Border Studies

  University of California, Davis

 

The UC Davis Graduate Group in Cultural Studies is pleased to announce a two-year Visiting Assistant Professorship for 2015-2017 in Comparative Border Studies supported by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Applicants should be specialists in research on one or more border zones, such as: US-Mexico, Israel-Palestine, Afghanistan-Pakistan, North- South Korea, East-West Germany, North Africa-Europe, etc. We are interested in promoting comparative and transnational research so these perspectives are preferred, but not required. The specific field is open, but interdisciplinary orientation in humanities and qualitative

social sciences is preferred.

 

Our new three-year Mellon Research Initiative in Comparative Border Studies focuses on the making, unmaking, crossing, and fortification of borders—national, regional, colonial--and aims to rethink notions of border crossing as well as containment within different regional studies contexts as a result of transregional, comparative dialogue. The initiative is organized around three major themes: 1) human rights, citizenship and racialized belonging; 2)

mobility, militarization and containment; 3) protest cultures and transnational solidarities. Research interest in one or more of these areas is preferred. We will consider junior scholars including recent PhDs and ABDs (the degree must be completed by July 1, 2015).

 

The Mellon Visiting Assistant Professor will participate in the activities of the Mellon Research Initiative in Comparative Border Studies. Duties include teaching three courses per year, and serving as co-organizer of colloquia and other events involving faculty and graduate students.  The appointment will be housed in an appropriate department or program in the humanities or (qualitative) social sciences, in accordance with the background of the successful applicant (fields may include Asian American studies, Chicana/o studies, History, English, Spanish, Middle East studies, South Asian studies, German, Native American studies, American studies, Anthropology, among others).

 

The Mellon Visiting Assistant Professor will receive an annual stipend of $55,000, plus health benefits, research funding, and relocation funds.

 

To apply, please send a letter of interest, CV, and contact information for three (3) references (we do NOT accept letters via Interfolio) through the online application form found at https://recruit.ucdavis.edu/apply/JPF00476. For full consideration applications must be received by February 6, 2015. The position is open until filled.

This emphasis on contemporary places, networks and practices enables a wider vision of what constitutes the Indian Ocean and allows explorations of new ethnographic and humanities methodologies in addition to historical archives or texts. We welcome applicants from any field in the humanities and social sciences, including interdisciplinary fields, with these orientations and interests. 

The Mellon Visiting Assistant Professor will participate in the activities of the Mellon Research Initiative. Duties include teaching three courses per year (some combination of graduate seminar and undergraduate courses) and helping to organize symposiums, conference, and other events involving faculty and graduate students.
