CASCA/AES 2009, deadline for submissions extended to February 20

CALL FOR PAPERS

Please note that the deadline for submissions and early registration
has been extended to February 20, 2009

CASCA/AES 2009 Joint Meeting
University of British Columbia, Vancouver, May 13-16 2009

Theme:
"Transnational Anthropologies: Convergences and
Divergences in Globalized Disciplinary Networks"

Theme:
Transnational Anthropologies: Convergences and
Divergences in Globalized Disciplinary Networks

In an era when anthropology is increasingly
attentive to transnational connections,
globalized geographies, and diasporic identities,
the discipline itself is subject to new and
challenging forms of deterritorialization and
re-territorialization. Anthropology has long been
constituted by tensions between the gravitational
force of its various national traditions and the
pull toward an international intellectual
cosmopolitanism. Yet the increasing presence of
scholars from the world "periphery" in
metropolitan universities, the rise to
international prominence of subaltern academic
centers, the deterritorialized concerns and
priorities of funding institutions, and the
growing transnational links between researchers,
research institutions, and research subjects
(among other factors) are further complicating
the spatiality of anthropological practice. These
shifts, in turn, are transforming the way
anthropologists examine the production of power
relations, inequalities, and identities in local
and global arenas. The 2009 CASCA-AES conference
to be held at the University of British Columbia
in Vancouver calls anthropologists and scholars
from across the social sciences and the
humanities to offer a fresh look at the
increasingly transnational nature of knowledge
production, at the resilience of regionalized
academic hierarchies, as well as at the different
ways in which the latter are being reconstituted
and subverted. Additionally, the conference
welcomes volunteered papers, panels, workshops,
and videos related to the internationalization of
social practice, power relations, and
subjectivities and to any other theme associated
with ongoing anthropological questions.

Thème :
Anthropologies transnationales : Convergences et
divergences au sein de réseaux disciplinaires mondialisés

À une époque où l'anthropologie est de plus en
plus attentive aux rapports transnationaux, aux
géographies mondialisées et aux identités
diasporiques, la discipline elle-même est aussi
confrontée à de nouvelles formes de
déterritorialisation et de reterritorialisation.
L'anthropologie s'est édifiée au fil de tensions
entre la force gravitationnelle de ses diverses
traditions nationales et sa tendance vers un
cosmopolitisme intellectuel international.
Aujourd'hui, la présence grandissante
d'intellectuels issus de la périphérie mondiale
dans les universités occidentales, la percée au
niveau international de centres académiques du
Sud global, les préoccupations et priorités
déterritorialisées des organismes
subventionnaires, de même que les relations
transnationales croissantes entre chercheurs,
institutions de recherche et sujets de recherches
(entre autres facteurs), compliquent encore
davantage la spatialité de la pratique
anthropologique. Ces changements transforment
aussi la façon dont les anthropologues examinent
la production de relations de pouvoir,
d'inégalités et d'identités sur les scènes
locales et mondiales. Le congrès CASCA-AES 2009,
qui aura lieu à l'Université de la
Colombie-Britannique à Vancouver, invite les
anthropologues et les chercheurs de toutes
disciplines des sciences sociales et humaines à
porter un regard nouveau sur la nature de plus en
plus transnationale de la production du savoir,
sur la résilience des hiérarchies académiques
régionalisées, de même que sur les différentes
façons par lesquelles ces dernières se voient
reconstituées et renversées. La conférence
sollicite également des propositions de
communications individuelles, de séances de
groupe, d'ateliers et de vidéos reliées à
l'internationalisation des pratiques sociales,
des relations de pouvoir et des subjectivités
ainsi qu'à tout autre thème associé aux enjeux anthropologiques contemporains.

Call for Papers for CASCA Session - Transnational Masculinities

CALL FOR PAPERS FOR A CASCA SESSION

Transnational Masculinities and the (Re)Making of Gendered Categories
and Corporeality

Organizer: Elizabeth Urbanowski

The cultural contingencies of masculinity and masculine subjectivities
have recently been
the subject of interesting and significant anthropological study.
This session seeks to
contribute to the anthropological investigation of masculinities by
drawing together
papers that explore the shape and resonance of transnational codes of
masculinity,
masculine embodiment and corporeality, and the masculinization of
knowledge. We welcome
papers that explore any aspect of masculinity and masculine
subjectivity that includes
consideration of transnationalism and neoliberalism.

Please send a 100-word abstract to Elizabeth Urbanowski
(elizabeth.urbanowski@utoronto.ca) by Friday January 30th. Thank you!

ANTHROPOLOGICA: A CALL FOR PAPERS

ANTHROPOLOGICA: A CALL FOR PAPERS


NB: Amended version. Please note e-mail address for Andrew Lyons
(Editor-in-Chief)

This message is addressed to all CASCA members. It
concerns your journal, Anthropologica. I have served as
Editor-in-Chief since the beginning of May, 2008.In that time I have
had a chance to assess the journal's many strengths as well as its
weaknesses. Under the editorship of my predecessor, we published
several excellent issues. Most of them were devoted to specific themes
and many were based on conference sessions. They include only a
minority of stand-alone submissions.

In the past eight months we have received very few such
articles. Only half of them were from Canada. Decisions have been made
on all but two of them. None of those papers were submitted in French.
It is true that there are journals which do not publish individual
submissions. That is not our mandate. We undertake to produce both
individually volunteered papers and thematic sections. We want our
journal fully to represent Canadian anthropology and we want it to be
the first place where Canadian faculty and graduate students publish.

We have received a large increase in our SSHRC Grant
because we promised to clear a large backlog of special issues
(thematic sections) and to print more volunteered papers, effective
2010.

We need your written work and your support. We guarantee
that we will give you a prompt decision regarding your work.
Electronic submissions are acceptable and most if not all of the peer
review process is now conducted electronically. Because there will be
no serious backlogs the gap between final acceptance and publication
should not be more than a year.

There is no reason why Canada's national anthropology
journal should not be ranked as highly as its equivalents in the USA,
France or Britain. We intend to bring that about, but it can only
happen with your support.

Articles written in English should be submitted
electronically to the Editor-in-Chief, Andrew Lyons (Wilfrid Laurier)
at andrewpaulllyons@gmail.com. Articles written in French should be
submitted to our Editor (French Manuscripts), Marie-France Labrecque
at Marie-France.labrecque@ant.ulaval.ca . After April 15 French
manuscripts should go to our new Editor (French manuscripts), Sylvie
Poirier at Sylvie.Poirier@ant.ulaval.ca .

St. Francis Xavier University - position

The Anthropology Program, St. Francis Xavier University, invites
applications for a nine-month, limited-term position at the assistant
professor level commencing 1 September 2009. The successful candidate
will have a PhD, or be near completion, in anthropology and demonstrate
effective teaching skills. Teaching responsibilities include courses in
four-field introductory anthropology and ethnographic field methods.
Consideration of applications will begin on February 16, 2009.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, statements of teaching and
research interests, evidence of teaching skills, and arrange for three
confidential letters of reference to be sent to: Dr. Susan Vincent,
Coordinator, Anthropology Program, St. Francis Xavier University. PO Box
5000, Antigonish, NS, B2G 2W5. Phone (902) 867-5281; Fax (902)
867-5456; e-mail svincent@stfx.ca

All qualified candidates, especially women and members of minority
groups, are encouraged to apply; however, in accordance with Canadian
Immigration requirements, Canadian citizens and permanent residents will
be given priority. St. Francis Xavier University is committed to the
principle of employment equity.

ANTHROPOLOGICA : UN APPEL POUR DES MANUSCRITS

ANTHROPOLOGICA : UN APPEL POUR DES MANUSCRITS

Ce message est adressé à tous les membres de la CASCA. Il
concerne votre revue, Anthropologica. Je suis rédacteur en chef de la
revue depuis le début de mai 2008. Durant cette période, j'ai pu évaluer
ses nombreuses forces ainsi que ses problèmes. Sous la direction
éditoriale de ma prédécesseure, nous avons publié plusieurs
excellents numéros. La plupart d'entre eux étaient consacrés à des
thèmes spécifiques et plusieurs étaient basés sur des sessions de
conférence. Ces numéros n'incluent qu'une minorité de soumissions
autonomes.

Au cours des huit derniers mois, nous n'avons reçu que très
peu de telles soumissions. Seulement la moitié de celles-ci provenait du
Canada. Des décisions ont été prises sur l'ensemble sauf deux d'entre
elles. Aucun de ces manuscrits n'a été soumis en français. Il est vrai
qu'il existe des revues qui ne publient pas les articles soumis
individuellement. Or, là n'est pas notre mandat. Nous nous engageons à
publier à la fois des articles soumis individuellement et des numéros
thématiques. Nous voulons que notre revue représente l'anthropologie
canadienne dans son ensemble et qu'elle soit le premier endroit où
publient le corps enseignant et les étudiants gradués canadiens.

Nous avons reçu une augmentation substantielle pour notre
subvention du CRSH grâce au fait que nous nous sommes engagés à traiter
les numéros thématiques en retard et à publier davantage d'articles
soumis individuellement, et ce à partir de 2010.

Nous avons besoin de vos écrits et de votre appui. Nous
garantissons que votre manuscrit sera traité rapidement et dans des
délais raisonnables. Les soumissions électroniques sont acceptées et
la plupart des processus d'évaluation par les pairs sont maintenant
menés électroniquement. Puisqu'il n'y aura aucun délai majeur, le
temps entre l'acceptation définitive et la publication ne devrait pas
dépasser une année.

Il n'y a aucune raison pour que la revue canadienne
d'anthropologie ne jouisse pas de la même réputation que ses équivalents
aux Etats-Unis, en France ou en Grande-Bretagne. Nous avons l'intention
d'atteindre cet objectif, et cela n'est possible qu'avec votre appui et
votre participation.

Les manuscrits en anglais devront être soumis
électroniquement au rédacteur en chef, Andrew Lyons (Wilfrid
Laurier) à andrewpaulllyons@gmail.com . Les manuscrits en français
devront être soumis à la rédactrice pour les manuscrits en français,
Marie-France Labrecque à Marie-France.labrecque@ant.ulaval.ca. Après le
15 avril, les manuscrits en français devront être soumis à la nouvelle
rédactrice pour les manuscrits en français, Sylvie Poirier à
Sylvie.poirier@ant.ulaval.ca

Call for Papers "Neoliberalism and Diasporas"

Call for Papers

"Neoliberalism and Diasporas"

Organizers: Daphne Winland (York University) and Nicholas deMaria
Harney (University of
Western Australia)

This session examines the tensions between two much studied phenomena
in the past twenty years that have rarely been explicitly conjoined:
1) the dramatic increase and politicisation in diasporic, solidaristic
transnational forms of belonging; and 2) the colonisation of life by
neoliberal forms of governance and discourse about the self. How
might an investigation of their intersection enable us to think about
alternative forms of social organisation and possibilities for
varieties of mutuality? The emergence of intensive diasporic practices
accompanied by the circulation and production of ideas, images and
goods on a global scale through technological innovation has
transformed international migration. This new intensity has coincided
with the individualising demands of neoliberal economic and governance
models that pervade sending, transit and receiving societies. What
effect do the specific features of neoliberal transformations such as
the socialisation of the self with an emphasis on flexible skills,
self-management and individualisation have on collective practices for
mutuality? Anthropologists have been attentive to the affective
attachments intensified by new technologies in the post Cold War
period but have paid less attention to how those attachments might be
influenced, constituted, undermined or refracted by neoliberalism's
many forms attached for example, to trade agreements, development
models or the demands of European integration. What are the processes
involved in the making of new mutualities and fissures? How do these
concurrent forms of neoliberalism intersect with processes such as
racialisation, commodification and aestheticisation? How might we
consider the coincident emergence of diasporic connections and
neoliberalism?

Please email Daphne Winland (winland@yorku.ca) by January 28, 2009 at
the latest.

SITES OF COSMOPOLITANISM: NARRATIVES WITHOUT CLOSURE
Postcolonial critics are amongst "us", arriving as intellectuals or
savvy computer engineers, instead of slaves or indentured labourers.
They have caught our imagination. "We" feel the need to have a
conversation with "them" – if only to expand our anthropological
horizons. But is a "conversation" possible when both parties (excuse
the simplification) have not "unlearned" the trappings of their
respective privilege? To quote Spivak, can there be a fruitful
"conversation" when "we" have yet to "learn that [our] privilege is
[our] loss"? Can the voice and scholarship of the so-called subaltern
be imaginable or even readable if authors do not subscribe to the
prevailing paradigmatic lexicon of Western epistemology? Each paper in
this panel is informed by this conundrum. In their respective accounts
- informed by ethnography at cosmopolitan sites - they negotiate the
problematic of representation in the hope of "unlearning" their
"privileges." In this way, we are able to evaluate the epistemological
closure inherent in anthropology, history, globalized capital, human
rights and so on, all terrains of ideology in the 21st century.

National Network for Aboriginal Mental Health Research 2009 Graduate Study Scholarships, Awards and Fellowships

the National Network for Aboriginal Mental Health Research (NAMHR) is
pleased to Announce
its 2009 Graduate Study Scholarships, Awards and Fellowships
*
*

------------------------------------------------------------------------

*
*
*Background*

The main goal of the National Network for Aboriginal Mental Health
Research (NAMHR) is to
train researchers, especially those from Aboriginal backgrounds, to
conduct mental health
research relevant to the needs and priorities of Aboriginal
populations and communities.
To build capacity, the NAMHR links interested students to a national
network of scholars
and researchers, and provides financial support for graduate students
pursing a master?s
or doctoral degree and post-doctoral fellowships related to Aboriginal
mental health.
Financial support is provided in the form of scholarships and/or
research allowance.

The NAMHR is funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research
(CIHR) Institute of
Aboriginal Peoples? Health (IAPH) and includes leading researchers in
Aboriginal mental
health and community partners from across Canada.

*Scholarships/Post-doctoral Fellowships*

All scholarships/fellowships are considered for a one-year term.
Applicants may re-apply
for each additional year of their program. Students demonstrating
adequate progress in
their studies and/or research project will be given priority. Students
pursuing a
master?s degree (MA, MSc or equivalent) are eligible to receive up to
$_18,000_ per year
and doctoral (PhD or equivalent) degree candidates are eligible for
_$21,000_. The amount
will be pro-rated for part-time students.

Exceptional candidates who have completed their doctorate within the
past 3 years are
eligible for post-doctoral fellowships. Applicants may apply for
_$42,000 (annually) for
a two-year term and a research stipend of $3,000_. Post-doctoral
students must submit a
progress report after the first year of funding.

Successful applicants are strongly encouraged to apply for other
sources of funding;
however, they may not hold another scholarship awarded by the
Tri-Council or other
NEAHRs. The total amount of the scholarships accepted must not exceed
$25,000 per year.

*Research Allowance*

Any student can also apply for a research allowance to defray the
costs of conducting
their research projects. Students must submit the following:

· A brief project proposal (1-2) pages indicating the rationale,
objectives and methods
of the research and also provide a budget of the study. The proposal
must also clearly
indicate the nature of the program of studies (i.e. a mental health
related discipline)
and how the project relates to NAMHR research themes.

· A letter from the student?s supervisor indicating their support for
the project and
affiliation with NAMHR. Supervisors who are not members of the NAMHR
will be invited to
join.

Students will be reimbursed for their expenses upon submission of
original receipts. A
lump sum payment may be requested in advance of the project to avoid
undue financial
hardship.

Some examples of expenditures that may qualify for support include:

* Travel ? to support data collection, community
communication/consultation, information dissemination, or
presentation at conferences, etc.
* Research assistants ? to assist with data collection (e.g.
interviews), transcription, data entry, computer programming, etc.
* Materials and supplies ? to purchase books, stationery, journal
subscriptions and reimburse long-distance telephone calls,
postage/couriers, etc.
* Others ? in unusual circumstances, support for unforeseen expenses
incurred by being away from home conducting the research will also
be considered (e.g. day care).

A student may receive both a scholarship and a research allowance, or
one and not the
other depending on his/her circumstances.

*Eligibility and Selection*

* Preference may be given to applicants who are Canadian citizens or
permanent residents.
* Graduate awards are open to both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal
students.
* Applicants must be enrolled in a master?s or doctoral program in a
mental-health related discipline, or be otherwise pursuing mental
health research within the context of their academic program.
(Proof of acceptance into a graduate program is mandatory before
award funds can be released).
* Applications at the post-doctoral level are eligible for a maximum
of two years funding.
* Research projects that are community-based or involve active
partnership with an Aboriginal organization/community are encouraged.
* There must be a commitment to disseminate the information arising
from the research.

NOTE: The NAMHR provides training activities (i.e. summer school
workshops, annual
meeting) for graduate students. Participation in NAMHR training
activities (for repeat
applicants) will be considered in the review process. Successful
applicants must agree to
provide a short biography and a photo, as well as a progress report
near the end of their
scholarship period.

If an applicant has taken a longer than average length of time to
complete graduate work,
please provide details (i.e. parenthood, etc.).

It is the applicant?s responsibility to obtain the required ethics
approval for research
involving human subjects from the relevant Research Ethics Review
Board in their own
institutions. Such approval is not required at the time of
application, but should be
submitted to NAMHR as soon as it has been granted. Funded projects
must respect the newly
developed *CIHR Guidelines for Health Research Involving Aboriginal People*.

*Submission Deadlines*

* *

The deadline for fall students is February 16, 2009.

ANTHROPOLOGICA: A CALL FOR PAPERS

ANTHROPOLOGICA: A CALL FOR PAPERS

This message is addressed to all CASCA members. It
concerns your journal, Anthropologica. I have served as
Editor-in-Chief since the beginning of May, 2008.In that time I have
had a chance to assess the journal's many strengths as well as its
weaknesses. Under the editorship of my predecessor, we published
several excellent issues. Most of them were devoted to specific themes
and many were based on conference sessions. They include only a
minority of stand-alone submissions.

In the past eight months we have received very few such
articles. Only half of them were from Canada. Decisions have been made
on all but two of them. None of those papers were submitted in French.
It is true that there are journals which do not publish individual
submissions. That is not our mandate. We undertake to produce both
individually volunteered papers and thematic sections. We want our
journal fully to represent Canadian anthropology and we want it to be
the first place where Canadian faculty and graduate students publish.

We have received a large increase in our SSHRC Grant
because we promised to clear a large backlog of special issues
(thematic sections) and to print more volunteered papers, effective
2010.

We need your written work and your support. We guarantee
that we will give you a prompt decision regarding your work.
Electronic submissions are acceptable and most if not all of the peer
review process is now conducted electronically. Because there will be
no serious backlogs the gap between final acceptance and publication
should not be more than a year.

There is no reason why Canada's national anthropology
journal should not be ranked as highly as its equivalents in the USA,
France or Britain. We intend to bring that about, but it can only
happen with your support.

Articles written in English should be submitted
electronically to the Editor-in-Chief, Andrew Lyons (Wilfrid Laurier)
at ndrewpaulllyons@gmail.com. Articles written in French should be
submitted to our Editor (French Manuscripts), Marie-France Labrecque
at Marie-France.labrecque@ant.ulaval.ca . After April 15 French
manuscripts should go to our new Editor (French manuscripts), Sylvie
Poirier at Sylvie.Poirier@ant.ulaval.ca .

ANTHROPOLOGICA : UN APPEL POUR DES MANUSCRITS

ANTHROPOLOGICA : UN APPEL POUR DES MANUSCRITS

Ce message est adressé à tous les membres de la CASCA. Il
concerne votre revue, Anthropologica. Je suis rédacteur en chef de la
revue depuis le début de mai 2008. Durant cette période, j'ai pu évaluer
ses nombreuses forces ainsi que ses problèmes. Sous la direction
éditoriale de ma prédécesseure, nous avons publié plusieurs
excellents numéros. La plupart d'entre eux étaient consacrés à des
thèmes spécifiques et plusieurs étaient basés sur des sessions de
conférence. Ces numéros n'incluent qu'une minorité de soumissions
autonomes.

Au cours des huit derniers mois, nous n'avons reçu que très
peu de telles soumissions. Seulement la moitié de celles-ci provenait du
Canada. Des décisions ont été prises sur l'ensemble sauf deux d'entre
elles. Aucun de ces manuscrits n'a été soumis en français. Il est vrai
qu'il existe des revues qui ne publient pas les articles soumis
individuellement. Or, là n'est pas notre mandat. Nous nous engageons à
publier à la fois des articles soumis individuellement et des numéros
thématiques. Nous voulons que notre revue représente l'anthropologie
canadienne dans son ensemble et qu'elle soit le premier endroit où
publient le corps enseignant et les étudiants gradués canadiens.

Nous avons reçu une augmentation substantielle pour notre
subvention du CRSH grâce au fait que nous nous sommes engagés à traiter
les numéros thématiques en retard et à publier davantage d'articles
soumis individuellement, et ce à partir de 2010.

Nous avons besoin de vos écrits et de votre appui. Nous
garantissons que votre manuscrit sera traité rapidement et dans des
délais raisonnables. Les soumissions électroniques sont acceptées et
la plupart des processus d'évaluation par les pairs sont maintenant
menés électroniquement. Puisqu'il n'y aura aucun délai majeur, le
temps entre l'acceptation définitive et la publication ne devrait pas
dépasser une année.

Il n'y a aucune raison pour que la revue canadienne
d'anthropologie ne jouisse pas de la même réputation que ses équivalents
aux Etats-Unis, en France ou en Grande-Bretagne. Nous avons l'intention
d'atteindre cet objectif, et cela n'est possible qu'avec votre appui et
votre participation.

Les manuscrits en anglais devront être soumis
électroniquement au rédacteur en chef, Andrew Lyons (Wilfrid
Laurier) à andrewpaulllyons@gmail.com . Les manuscrits en français
devront être soumis à la rédactrice pour les manuscrits en français,
Marie-France Labrecque à Marie-France.labrecque@ant.ulaval.ca. Après le
15 avril, les manuscrits en français devront être soumis à la nouvelle
rédactrice pour les manuscrits en français, Sylvie Poirier à
Sylvie.poirier@ant.ulaval.ca .

Call for Papers: Canadian Anthropology Society Annual Meeting

Call for Papers
Canadian Anthropology Society Annual Meeting
May 13-16, 2009 University of British Columbia, Vancouver, B.C.


Session Title: 50 Years of the Cuban Revolution: Political Economy,
Ecology and Culture
Session Organizer: Kendra Coulter, University of Windsor
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Cuban Revolution. Cuba is an
important sociocultural site for anthropological scholarship on the
production of political projects, offering significant insights for
understanding transnational anti-imperialist, anti-neoliberal and
socialist politics. This session will examine the accomplishments and
complexities of the Cuban Revolution as a lived, collective process and as
a sustained challenge to the capitalist model. Papers on political
ecology, gender relations, labour, education, health, children/youth and
political economy in Cuba are particularly welcome.

Please email Kendra Coulter directly at kcoulter@uwindsor.ca before

Seeking Panel Participants for CASCA 09 - The Power of Kinship: locating the role of kinship in a post-modern world.

Panel Title: The Power of Kinship: locating the role of kinship in a
post-modern
world.

Panel Organiser: Cara Krmpotich, Institute of Social and Cultural
Anthropology,
University of Oxford

Papers exploring the role of kinship within discourses of globalisation,
post-colonialism/de-colonisation, transationalism, and/or the production of
power are being sought for a panel for this year's CASCA meetings.

Panel Abstract:
This year's CASCA meetings question anthropology's relationship with
transationalism, globalism, de-territorialisation and the production of
power. Yet, for all the headway anthropology has gained by moving beyond the
confines of culture areas or recognising the place of indigenous people
within global and post-colonial processes, we need to also ask how these new
perspectives confront, challenge or support the historic source of
power in many
of these locations: kinship. Not wanting to conflate tradition with
authenticity, this panel raises the element of kinship as a means of tracing
change and continuity within cultures and within anthropology as a discipline.
It asks how family can be articulated within community and/or anthropological
discourses as a legitimate mode of political, economic, and social power.

Possible venues to explore include how success in the transnational art market
filters down to the production of local power? How kinship's role in the
production of power has been affected by the emergence of band councils and
pan-Indian political organizations? How the notion of "community" as an agent
for action and a source of belonging alters the roles of kinship? Or how
technologies such as Facebook, Bebo, WikiNative or the use of radio to
broadcast
potlaches influence family interaction?

Interested contributors should email the panel organiser with questions and/or
abstracts: cara.krmpotich@seh.ox.ac.uk

CFP conference session at CASCA

Call for Papers for session at CASCA in May at UBC:
Knowledge production: Constructing Indigeneity, past and present

Museums, tourist sites, and other spaces of representation and/or
performance are fertile terrains for the study of social relationships and
knowledge production. In terms of the production of knowledge, these spaces
often consist of power imbalances among the multiple producers; still,
opportunities for alternative narratives and knowledge production also
exist. This session explores how various actors, including anthropologists,
produce indigeneity in these transnational spaces. How have representations
of indigenous peoples and relationships changed at these sites? Who decides
how indigeneity is presented? How do "transnational" and "urban" indigenous
people engage with these representations and spaces? What knowledge do
indigenous communities construct of themselves in these spaces and what does
this mean in terms of power and social relationships?

This session welcomes papers that address these and other questions related
to the representation of indigenous peoples in museums, tourist sites,
literature, collaborative projects, and other sites of representation and
performance. Please send your abstracts to Linda Scarangella at
lscarangella@gmail.com by January 23rd, 2009.

Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Health & Social Aspects of Area-Based Initiatives

Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Health & Social Aspects of Area-Based
Initiatives

Affiliated with the CIHR-PHAC Chair in Applied Public Health on
Interventions in Residential Neighbourhoods & Population Health


The past several years has seen area-based policy emerge as a solution
to a variety of social problems, including spatial concentrations of
socially disadvantaged populations and increasing gaps between these
populations in a variety of social outcomes, including economic, health
and educational outcomes. Known as ABIs, the successful candidate for
this post-doctoral fellowship will conduct theoretically-informed, but
applied research on the social, political and cultural aspects of ABIs.
Specific questions may include: what factors affect the effectiveness of
ABIs in meeting their stated objectives internationally, and what
lessons can be learned for Canada?; in Canada?s limited experience with
ABIs, what factors have led to their adoption and the choices about
specific policy content?; and within ABIs currently in progress in
Toronto, what social and political factors have influenced their
implementation and how are these contributing to the success or failure
of local institution-building for community development and equitable
neighbourhood governance in socially-mixed communities? Examples of
relevant ABIs in Toronto include the Priority Neighbourhoods Strategy
and the redevelopment of Regent Park, a social housing development, into
a socially-mixed neighbourhood.

The successful candidate will work under the supervision of Dr. James
Dunn at the Centre for Research on Inner City Health at St. Michael?s
Hospital. Dr. Dunn holds a Chair in Interventions in Residential
Neighbourhoods & Population Health and has established research
partnerships with agencies involved in ABIs in Toronto. Dr. Dunn is also
appointed in the Department of Geography and Planning and the Dalla Lana
School of Public Health at the University of Toronto. Applications are
invited from candidates with a Ph.D. in a relevant social science
discipline, which may include sociology, geography, political science,
anthropology, or urban studies.

Funding for this post-doctoral fellowship is provided by the Canadian
Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR) (www.cifar.ca) through the
Successful Societies Program. After the deadline, one applicant will be
selected and nominated to CIFAR by Dr. Dunn. The appointment will then
be subject to approval by the Research Council and the Board of CIFAR,
based on academic excellence. The successful candidate will be expected
to participate in the activities of the Successful Societies Program of
CIFAR.

The Fellowship will take effect on July 1, 2009. Its duration will be
one year, with potential to renew for a second year.
Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, the names
and contact information of three referees, and a one-page research
proposal relevant to the research program described above. Please submit
application materials by e-mail by January 26, 2009. Applications should
be sent directly by e-mail to:
Dr. James Dunn,
CIHR-PHAC Chair in Applied Public Health,
Centre for Research on Inner City Health,
St. Michael?s Hospital,
30 Bond St., Toronto, M5B 1W8
