Fellowship in Ethnographic Writing UTSC

Fellowship in Ethnographic Writing, Fall 2012

The Centre for Ethnography (CE) at the University of Toronto at
Scarborough (UTSC) is accepting applications for their annual Fellowship
in Ethnographic Writing. Writing is a key component of the work of an
anthropologist, but it takes time and benefits from some distance from the
fieldwork itself, and from other obligations. In recognition of this fact
the CE introduced a Fellowship in Ethnographic Writing in 2010. We are now
seeking applications for the Fall Term of 2012.

The recipient of this award is expected to devote their time fully to
writing and may not teach or hold any other form of employment during the
tenure of the award. They are expected to attend all talks and colloquia
at the CE, to work several days a week on campus at UTSC, and to
contribute a presentation of their work in progress to the Anthropology
colloquiam. In addition, the Fellow will be available to coach students
completing an undergraduate writing assignment, working in tandem with a
professor teaching a core introductory course. This work will be limited
to 5 hours in total.

Applicants should supply a letter of interest, a CV, and statement of no
more than 5 double-spaced pages describing their writing project,
indicating the stage that it is at, and precisely what they wish to
accomplish during the duration of the Fellowship. Explicit attention to
questions of genre, narrative, and audience are welcome but not essential.
Successful applicants will either be at the post-doctoral stage (engaged
in transforming a thesis into a book or articles) or in the final stages
of completing the doctoral thesis. All applicants must have completed
their doctoral fieldwork and have already submitted drafts of significant
portions of their dissertation to their committee. The current stipend is
set at $10,000 for a period of no less than ten weeks. Fellows may
continue to use the facilities for the entire term.
The closing date for this competition is March 1, 2012. Please send all
application materials, as well as the names of two referees,
electronically to the Centre for Ethnography
