Call for Applications
2019- 2020 Theme: Feminist Futures
The UC Davis Feminist Research Institute (FRI) is now accepting applications for its 2019-2020 Collaboratory Fellows Program for faculty. This program supports faculty engaging in feminist collaboration that exemplifies FRI’s four values of inclusivity, intersectionality, justice, and transformation. We are particularly interested in collaborations that challenge traditional hierarchies of knowledge. Collaborations could include feminist-informed community-based research, productions or events, team science, convergence research, or research exploring citational and/or archival practices as collaboration.
Projects should also address the 2019-2020 theme “Feminist Futures.” This theme points towards the need to engage in research practices that imagine a more just world and move us in that direction. Feminists of color along with indigenous and queer scholars, writers, and artists all recognize the importance of envisioning the world toward which we want to grow. Their work draws upon histories of resistance in order to engage in forward-looking speculative practices that often challenge traditional models of progress and innovation. We seek projects that draw upon this tradition and engage in creative and collaborative research practices that create livable futures for the most vulnerable in our society.
All Collaboratory Fellows will participate in seminars sharing their research and exploring the theme “Feminist Futures.” They will also work with FRI to create a publicly-accessible piece about their work, such as a report, video, podcast, op-ed, white paper, policy brief, article, or graphic. Fellows will also have the opportunity to work with FRI to plan events that complement their collaborative research.
Faculty are eligible for $10,000 in funding to be used in the 2019-2020 academic year. Applications should be submitted via InfoReady by May 13, 2019 and should include:
- Curriculum vitae
- Project description (500 words maximum): Detailed description of proposed project
- Statement explaining the relevancy of the project to FRI’s values and the theme “Feminist Futures” (250 words maximum)
- Budget with justification
