Mindful of the continuing pandemic, the carbon footprint of international travel, and longstanding challenges for scholars from the global south to obtain visas and resources for international travel, the conference will be held with a hybrid format, including in-person activities for those who can be present and remote/virtual platforms for participation by those who cannot join us in person.
The purpose of the Fellowship is to support professionalization in the field of Global Studies, including successful publishing, by fostering quality mentorship for junior scholars.
Successful applicants will present a work in progress to a panel of distinguished scholars. Panel mentors will comment on the Fellow’s work, making suggestions intended to increase the likelihood it will be accepted for publication. Topics of discussion could include the way research topics and questions are framed, engagement with relevant literature in the field, support for strengthening analytical rigor, significance of the work, avenues for further research and funding, and specific journals or publishers to which the work could be submitted.
Pending University approval, UC Irvine will provide lodging for the nights of January 21st and 22nd. Travel including airfare or mileage will not be provided. Participants will have the option to participate via Zoom.
Early career scholars, including advanced PhD candidates (ABD), postdoctoral fellows, and recent PhD recipients who are not yet in a tenure-track po- sition are eligible to apply.
