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).

Visiting Research Chair in Cities in the North American Context

at McGill University

US$25,000 for 4 months (September 2015 or January 2016)

Contact: Brad Hector, Fulbright Canada Program Officer (Scholars)

 

Chairholder will conduct research at the McGill Institute for the Study of Canada, deliver a public lecture, and may also choose to lead an advanced undergraduate seminar.

The McGill Institute for the Study of Canada is looking to host a Fulbright Visiting Research Chair whose research deals with cities in the North American context.  The individual selected may be a specialist in Urban Planning and Urban Studies, or in the social, cultural, economic or governance-related issues of cities.  While a specific focus on Canadian cities is not expected, McGill is looking for someone whose research deals with urban issues in a manner that is relevant to the Canadian experience.  McGill's preference is for a scholar whose work is concerned primarily with cities in the present-day  context.  McGill is particularly interested, as well, in scholars whose work offers an interesting integration of humanistic and social science perspectives.  While it is expected that that the holder of the Chair will be a specialist in one discipline, McGill is seeking someone whose work integrates a variety of perspectives and addresses a range of experiences. 

Specialization: Urban planning, urban studies, city-related issues. 

Note: McGill University is an English speaking institution, however, some resource material may be in French. French is not required but would be an asset.
