Fulbright Canada Research Chair in Political and Constitutional Theory at McGill University

US$25,000 for 4 months
September 2018 or January 2019
Fulbright Canada Program Officer (Scholars)

Hosted in the Research Group on Constitutional Studies (RGCS), a unit of the Yan P. Lin Centre for the Study of Freedom and Global Orders in the Ancient and Modern Worlds, this award is open to established or emerging scholars in political theory and is open with respect to methodology and approach in that field. Applications are also invited from scholars in neighbouring areas of legal theory and jurisprudence, political philosophy and political science. The Chair will pursue research in political and constitutional theory broadly construed. The ability to engage with scholars and students across methodologies — normative, empirical, intellectual-historical, jurisprudential, and formal, for example — is more important than particular areas of emphasis.

Sample areas of interest include: normative analyses of fundamental rights and of such basic constitutional structures as the separation of powers or federalism; democratic theory, especially as it pertains to political institutions; the history of political thought about constitutional government or constitutional forms; and questions of justice about the constitutional basic structure of a society, ranging from property and market relations to the legal organization of family life.

The Chair-holder will be in residence at RGCS for one semester, will deliver one public lecture, regularly attend and also present work at an RGCS workshop, and, if appropriate, guest-lecture or lead guest discussions in political science classes. The Chair will more generally take an active part in the intellectual life of McGill, RGCS, and the Groupe de Recherche Interuniversitaire en Philosophie Politique.

Specializations: Political theory, political science, history of political thought, constitutionalism, constitutional interpretation, judicial review, jurisprudence.

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.
