Call for applications - Fulbright New Zealand Senior Scholars and Visiting Lectureships in New Zealand Studies
Fulbright New Zealand invite applications by leading New Zealand research scholars, lecturers, artists and professionals to take up Fulbright scholar awards to the United States of America in 2009.
Fulbright New Zealand Senior Scholar Awards are for academics, artists or professionals to lecture and/or conduct research in the US for three to five months. Four or five awards valued at up to US$32,500 (plus travel expenses) are offered each year. This year's Senior Scholars researched topics as diverse as child nutrition, women in sports leadership, pheromone control of fire ants and literacy programmes for minority students, with a fifth grantee taking up an artist-in-residence position at New York University.
Fulbright Visiting Lectureships in New Zealand Studies are for academics to teach an undergraduate course in New Zealand Studies and conduct research at Georgetown University in Washington, DC for one or two semesters. Two lectureships are offered each year - one per semester - each valued at up to US$32,500 (plus travel expenses). Dr Jo Diamond from the University of Canterbury is currently teaching a course in indigenous art history at Georgetown. She will be succeeded by Dr Brian McDonnell from Massey University, who will teach a course in New Zealand film and literature for the fall semester. Applications are encouraged from any discipline of New Zealand studies, including international affairs, business, public policy and management, government, history, literature and fine arts.
Applications for both awards close on 1 June 2008.
