Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton: Summer Program in Social Science

Princeton, USA, 18 - 29 June 2018; Johannesburg, South Africa and Bogota, Colombia, mid-2019

The Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, USA, with the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, announces the second round of its Summer Program in Social Science (2018 - 2019), conducted in collaboration with the Wits Institute for Social and Economic Research (WISER) at the University of the Witwatersrand, in Johannesburg, and the Escuela de Estudios de Genero (EEG) and Centro de Estudios (CES) at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia, in Bogota. The programme aims to enrich and expand the realm of the social sciences through the confrontation of different intellectual traditions and perspectives; to facilitate and enhance the dialogue between various scientific disciplines and communities; and to strengthen international networks across continents.

This innovative programme will take place over a two-year cycle, beginning with a two-week session in Princeton (18 - 29 June 2018), followed by a one week mid-2019 session at one of the two collaborating institutions in South Africa and Colombia, with continuous communication facilitated among the scholars throughout the two year period.

Fellowships are available for early-career scholars from all disciplines of the social sciences and humanities, from Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East, three regions which have been under-represented in the regular membership programme in the School of Social Science.

The deadline for applications is 15 September 2017.
