In autumn of even-numbered years, the Center for Feminist Research will invite proposals from USC scholars in any school or discipline to be the annual Director of the “New Directions in Feminist Research” seminar. Candidates should propose a broadly thematic, interdisciplinary topic for a research seminar derived from their own ongoing research. Topics must be related to feminism or gender studies or employ feminist approaches or methods. Directors will help select New Directions Fellows to participate in a year-long scholarly seminar focusing on collaborative discussion of works in progress related to the chosen seminar theme. Seminar Directors will receive $5000 in research funding and, if they hold positions within the College, release from teaching one course (pending deans’ final approval in each case.) Directors will also manage a small programming budget. Seminar format is flexible but must include at least six meetings over the academic year.
Please check back soon for this year's call!
