With the sponsorship of the Society for the Humanities, the Africana Studies and Research Center invites applications for a two-year Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship. Applicants' scholarship should focus on the areas of contemporary, Afro-Latin American literature and culture, history, or interpretive social sciences, with particular emphasis on popular youth culture, gender and sexuality, and/or comparative, Western hemispheric studies. Research on Afro-Latin American experiences in the United States will also be considered, especially if they are placed in extensive dialogue with similar experiences or racial formations in the rest of the hemisphere. Preference will be give to candidates who can demonstrate a solid grasp of their methodology for both research and teaching.
