Fellowship in Ethnographic Writing, Fall 2013 (UTSC)

Fellowship in Ethnographic Writing, Fall 2013

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 2013, to be held at UTSC.

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
colloquia. In addition, the Fellow will be available to coach students
completing an undergraduate writing assignment, in tandem with a
professor teaching a core introductory course. This work will be
limited to 5 hours in total.

Applicants should supply a 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 significant
portions of their dissertation to their committee. The current stipend
is set at $10,000 for a period of ten weeks.

The closing date for this competition is March 1, 2013. Please send
all applications, as well as the names of two referees, electronically
to the Centre for Ethnography <>.
