Grants begin in either September 2019 or January 2020
Fulbright Canada Program Officer (Scholars)

The Centre for Canadian Studies at Brock University is amongst the oldest and most important centers of research and teaching in its field. Located in the Niagara border region, Brock recently introduced a new joint M.A. in Canadian and American studies with the State University of New York at Buffalo. The school encourages collaborative work that crosses intellectual and international borders, especially work in collaboration with neighboring U.S. institutions. The Fulbright scholar program is part of this larger initiative. Brock hosts the annual Two Days of Canada Conference and the bi-annual Crossing Borders undergraduate conference on transnational issues. The grantee will teach a one-term course at the undergraduate level and deliver a public lecture on the transnational theme of choice (likely at one of the two regular conferences).

Specializations: Writing across borders; transnational cultures; languages, citizenship, and migration, including approaches to Indigenous populations and cultures; histories of the cross-border region; border studies; Canadian-American relations; and the image of Canada abroad.

Applicants are encouraged to identify their primary and alternate choices on the application. Formal letters of invitation should not be sought; however, applicants are encouraged to contact the institution to discuss research interests.
