Bourse de recherche : Etudes en histoire de la sexualité

From 2008 to 2010 the SEPHIS programme will run a research project on ‘Sexualities and Modernities’ sponsored by the FORD Foundation. The objective of this programme is to allow researchers to gain a deeper historical and comparative understanding of the complex interplay between cultural contexts and the politics of sex- and gender-based claims of identity. Dissemination to advocacy groups and into the public sphere is an essential part of this endeavor.

SEPHIS is making one fellowship available to candidates at the post-doctoral, PhD and MA level to research any area to do with the history of sexualities in North Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia. Funding of up to $15 000 is available to the successful applicant who will have 18 months (until December 2009) to complete a substantial written research report as well as an academic article of around 10 000 words. The latter will be published as part of a collection of articles. In addition, the applicant will be expected to contribute to public activities outside the academic sphere. Contributions should be received by December 2009. The successful candidate will also be required to attend a week-long training workshop in September 2008, to be held at a venue in the South.
