Position Description

The Center for the Study of Race and Ethnicity in America (CSREA) supports and generates rigorous and accessible research, performance, art and scholarship on a broad range of issues pertaining to race and ethnicity in America. At CSREA we aim to:

  1. Build community among scholars and students working on race + ethnicity
  2. Develop new and enhance existing research networks
  3. Foster generative public conversations on pivotal issues
  4. Enhance public knowledge about racial and ethnic discrimination
  5. Contribute to national and community efforts to create a more just society

CSREA invites tenured and other long-term faculty who have been approved by their home institutions to be on a funded scholarly leave to apply to be a Visiting Faculty Fellow for the fall 2023 academic term. Applicants’ scholarship and proposed project should focus on race, ethnicity, and/or indigeneity in the United States and/or work that connects the U.S. to related transnational contexts. Fellows will have access to Brown University resources, have opportunities to present works-in-progress, and will contribute to the intellectual life of CSREA through engaged participation in scholarly and social activities on campus. 

This program is an in-person fall semester fellowship. The terms of the program may be subject to change.

Fellows are expected to cover their own expenses (including health benefits) for the duration of their appointment.

  • Be on a funded scholarly leave/sabbatical at their home institution

Note: Previous CSREA Visiting Faculty Fellows are not eligible
