Eakin Fellowship

Notice of this fellowship has been posted by the Canadian Political Science Association, but here it is again in case you missed it. It doesn’t pay much. Looks a lot like slave labour! But there’s the honour of the thing! More important: something’s happening in Quebec and it would be fun to be at the centre. The historians are rewriting our common past; they’re ousting the culture of complaint. And political party lines are shifting. McGill is asking for someone who can bring a “fresh perspective” on Canadian studies.

Who better than someone from this list!

The McGill Institute for the Study of Canada (MISC) is pleased to announce that it is now accepting applications for the Eakin Visiting Fellowship in Canadian Studies for the 2009-2010 academic year.

The Fellowship will be awarded to high-level scholars focusing on studies related to Canada. It will be awarded for periods of one or two academic semesters to a scholar with a Ph.D., normally on sabbatical from their own academic institution. The position is open, in terms of rank and discipline, to a dynamic scholar who can enrich the study of Canada with fresh perspectives. The Fellowship may also be awarded to an individual outside of the academic community, whose writing, research or public career have made a significant contribution to intellectual life in Canada.

The incumbent will be expected to teach at least one undergraduate course in Canadian Studies, deliver the Eakin Lecture (part of the MISC’s Distinguished Lecture Series), participate in the activities of the Institute, and pursue exchanges with colleagues at McGill and other institutions.

The Fellowship will offer a stipend of $15,000 per semester, plus $2,500 per semester for research-related expenses.

Applicants are invited to send:
Letter of Application
Curriculum Vitae
Letter of Reference
Indication of preference for Fall (2009), Winter (2010)
or for the full 2009-2010 academic year

Please send application materials by December 5, 2008 to
