BBRG invites applications for the following programs:

SCHOLARS IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM 2017-2018
and
AFFILIATED SCHOLARS PROGRAM

The BEATRICE BAIN RESEARCH GROUP (BBRG), within the Department of Gender & Women’s Studies, is the University of California, Berkeley’s critical feminist research center, established in 1986 to support and coordinate feminist scholarship across disciplines. The BBRG is particularly interested in enabling research on gender in its intersections with sexuality, race, ethnicity, class, nation, religion, postcoloniality, globalization and transnational feminisms.

This announcement concerns two of its programs:

1.     THE BBRG SCHOLARS-IN-RESIDENCE PROGRAM

(APPLICATIONS ARE DUE BY MARCH 15, 2017)

Each year the BBRG hosts a new group of competitively selected scholars from the U.S. and abroad for a period of one academic year. (from August 16, 2017 to May 11, 2018).

The BBRG Scholars-in-Residence Program is open to senior and junior faculty (tenured and untenured), visiting scholars, postdoctoral scholars and independent scholars, from any country, whose work is centrally on gender and women. Applicants must have received their Ph.D. (or its equivalent) at least one year prior to the projected beginning of their residency at BBRG.

The BBRG provides its Scholars-in-Residence with the following: visiting scholar status at University of California, Berkeley; access to University of California, Berkeley libraries and library privileges; a library orientation session customized for the purposes of the Scholar in Residence’s research; the possibility of student research assistants; shared office space; shared computer and internet access; a BBRG Scholars Writing/Reading Group which meets bi-monthly; and a forum for BBRG Scholars-in-Residence to present their scholarly or creative work to the Berkeley campus community and the public.

BBRG is non-stipendiary, and thus Scholars-in-Residence provide their own financial support during the residency. There are fees associated with residency at BBRG. Please see the website for full details.

2.     THE BBRG AFFILIATED SCHOLARS PROGRAM

(APPLICATIONS ARE ACCEPTED THROUGHOUT THE ACADEMIC YEAR)

The BBRG Affiliated Visiting Scholars Program is designed to accommodate scholars who would like to spend a relatively short period of time in residence, ranging from one month to six months. The program is open to senior and junior faculty (tenured and untenured), visiting scholars, postdoctoral scholars and independent scholars, from the U.S. and abroad, whose work is centrally on women and gender. Applicants must have the Ph.D. (or its equivalent) in hand one year prior to the beginning of the appointment. The BBRG accepts applications for the BBRG Affiliated Visiting Scholars Program throughout the academic year.

Affiliated Visiting Scholars will have access to UC Berkeley library privileges, a shared office, and shared computer and internet access. Affiliated Visiting Scholars are invited to participate in the BBRG Scholars’ Writing/Reading Group if they are in residence for at least three months.

Affiliated Visiting Scholars provide their own financial support during the residency. There are fees associated with residency at BBRG. Please see the website for full details.

*Non-U.S. scholars will need a J-1 visa to visit BBRG. This paperwork takes three months to complete. Please plan accordingly.
