CALL FOR PROPOSALS

The African Studies Multi-Campus Research Group (MRG) invites applications for participation in

The UC African Studies Dissertation Workshop

to be held at University of California, Irvine, on Friday and Saturday, 1-2 October, 2010.

Organizers:

Victoria Bernal, Department of Anthropology & Laura Mitchell, Department of History

Application Deadline: May 28, 2010

Eligibility: Applicants shall be current University of California graduate students in the humanities, arts, law, or social sciences in good academic standing. Priority will be given to students who are preparing dissertation proposals for funding, but the workshop is open to students at all stages. Projects linking the African continent and diasporas, and comparative projects with a significant African component are welcome.

Objectives of the Dissertation Workshop: The Dissertation Workshop is designed to help graduate students strengthen their dissertation projects and improve their chances of funding, as well as to facilitate UC-wide, interdisciplinary networking among graduate students and faculty across the disciplines in African Studies.  The workshop will provide an opportunity for ten graduate students to present their current dissertation research proposals (or other work) and receive critical feedback on their projects from fellow graduate students and a group of UC faculty members.

The African Studies MRG will provide limited funding to support travel and accommodation for non-UCI students. Students are encouraged to seek support from their respective campuses through their own departments, programs and centers.

How to Apply: Applications must be submitted electronically no later than May 28, 2010. Complete item 1, then submit items 2-6 as one PDF document to africa-mrg@socrates.berkeley.edu:

3.       A short dissertation proposal (750-1000 words) including a project description, research methods, and statement on the current stage of the applicant’s research; (students in the dissertation writing stage should submit an abstract of the dissertation,  and a table of contents, indicating which chapter would be the focus of the workshop).

4.       A one-page research schedule;

5.       A one-page bibliography;

6.       A one-page cv with the names and email addresses of three referees including your dissertation advisor.

Applicants will be notified by June 4, 2010.
