Enhance Global Literacy at Columbia University

Oh, to have a PhD...

2010-2011 INTERACT Postdoctoral Fellowship
The Institute for Comparative Literature and Society invites
applications for a postdoctoral fellowship through the new
International Network to Expand Regional and Collaborative Teaching
(INTERACT) program at Columbia University, being launched during the
2010-2011 academic year. The fellowship will cover a 10-month period
beginning August 1, 2010, and comes with a stipend of $45,000 plus

INTERACT is a pioneering program at Columbia University that focuses
on developing global studies in the undergraduate curriculum through
a network of postdoctoral scholars focused on cross-regional, trans-
regional, and interdisciplinary study. A total of six Columbia
University INTERACT Postdoctoral Fellowships will be offered in the
2010-2011 academic year, with candidates selected by centers and
institutes across the University. Candidates will function as
liaisons between their home office and the INTERACT network of
scholars with other regional and disciplinary specializations.

INTERACT’s primary goal is to improve global literacy among Columbia
students and equip them to be leaders in a globalizing world. These
objectives will be met through innovative courses, participating in
institute programs and events and an annual educator workshop organized
collaboratively by INTERACT Fellows.
