BRANDEIS UNIVERSITY: Postdoctoral Fellowship – Revolutionary Studies
Application deadline: 1 December 2012
Modified text from email announcement below:
Brandeis University has received a Mellon Foundation grant to host a
year-long Sawyer Seminar, “Rethinking the Age of Revolution: Rights,
Representation, and the Global Imaginary,” during the 2013-2014 academic
year. The seminar, which will draw faculty from around the region and doctoral
students from the Brandeis campus, explores the American, French, and Haitian
revolutions in comparative and interdisciplinary perspective, with a particular
eye on the implications of the age of revolution in the early twenty-first century.
The Sawyer Seminar provides for a one-year postdoctoral fellowship for a
scholar of the Caribbean in the age of revolution, preferably with an emphasis
on Haiti, in any academic discipline. The successful candidate will take a central
role in the seminar but will have no further teaching responsibilities. They are
looking for an early-career scholar of exceptional promise who can make a deep
contribution to the seminar and to the vibrant intellectual communities both at
Brandeis and in the metropolitan area.
