Two Fellows will be selected. Applications are welcome from scholars who s=

andidates whose work falls within one or more of the following fields: Afri=

he Fellow must have relevant expertise in both sexuality studies and anothe=
r substantive field, and must be prepared to teach courses that reflect tha=
t expertise.

Fellows will pursue a program of independent scholarship under th=
e guidance of a faculty mentor and will teach two undergraduate courses eac=
h year (typically one seminar and one
lecture course) over the course of the three-quarter-long teaching year. F=
ellows will also be expected to be active participants in SPAN’s comm=
unity of faculty and graduate students and, as applicable, in their affilia=
ted department by attending talks and
events. Finally, they will assist in the organization of on-campus educati=
