The Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS) is inviting applications for its Craig M. Cogut Visiting Professorship in Latin American and Caribbean Studies to be taken up during the 2021-2022 academic year.
The Craig M. Cogut Visiting Professorship brings leading scholars from Latin America and the Caribbean to Brown University to teach and conduct research. Visiting Professors are based at the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS) at the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs. Cogut Professors teach one undergraduate course on Latin America and/or the Caribbean per semester, meet with undergraduate and graduate students, and give presentations on campus through CLACS or affiliated units. The Craig M. Cogut Visiting Professorship provides a salary, an optional medical insurance package, a modest research fund, and administrative assistance. Appointments are possible for one or two semesters.
The fellowship is open to any scholar working on Latin America and the Caribbean, but we are especially interested in hearing from scholars working on intra-Latin American and or Caribbean migration, especially at the intersections of race and ethnicity. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in any discipline in the humanities and social sciences. In exceptional circumstances, we may consider applicants with professional qualifications and extensive experience in academia, the arts, and public service. This position is not open to junior faculty.
Applications should be either (1) a foreign national who is eligible to obtain a J-1 visa or (2) a U.S. citizen or resident. Applications should include: (1) a cover letter describing your research, teaching and accomplishments, and including your proposed length of stay (one or two semesters, and preference of semester, if coming for one); (2) a current C.V.; (3) a list of up to three professional references; and (4) a one- page description of the proposed course or courses that you would like to teach as a Visiting Professor (the course/s may be taught in English, Spanish or Portuguese).
Materials must be submitted through the Interfolio system using the following link: https://apply.interfolio.com/79344.
The deadline is November 15, 2020.
