UCSD’s International Institute is searching
for a postdoctoral fellow to participate in a year-long “Sawyer Seminar”
focusing on the theme of "Claiming the City: Urban Citizenship, Hybrid
Cultures, and Governance in the Modern Era". The Institute is
grateful for a grant for this seminar from the Mellon Foundation. Our
seminar will bring together faculty and graduate students at UCSD and other
regional institutions to think together about urban spaces as sites of
citizenship, governance, and environmental resilience. The year’s activities
will include a series of invited speakers, workshops and classes held in
2018-19. For more details about the seminar, please see https://internationalinstitute.ucsd.edu/_files/sawyer-proposal-for-ii-website.pdf.
The International Institute, a newly founded
interdisciplinary center at the University of California, San Diego coordinates
and supports scholarship and teaching on international issues at UC San Diego.
The II is a vibrant international and multidisciplinary intellectual community
that produces and supports research and policy ideas from across disciplines.
The II is committed to fostering international knowledge that encompasses
multiple levels, from local knowledge of languages and sub-national groups, to
regional and state knowledge, to global knowledge of international systems, institutions,
and organizations. To foster these collaborations, the II provides funding to
cross-divisional faculty groups and collaboratories, and convenes an annual
conference dedicated to one of the university’s four research themes across
regions of the world. Fellowships for student research is also awarded on an
annual basis. Further information about the Institute can be found at http://internationalinstitute.ucsd.edu/.
