Rutgers University Postdoctoral Fellowship in Race and Gender History

Deadline: March 15

Length: 1 year

Comments: “The theme for the seminar series is “Black Bodies” and the seminar seeks to pull together several interdisciplinary frames of inquiry about ‘black bodies’ in various times, spaces, and geographies. Attentive to the intersections/assemblages of race, gender and sexuality, the seminar asks and invites questions concerning the many ways in which black bodies are subject to epistemic, historical, archival, state/non-state, biopolitical, and praxes of violence and erasure in global configurations.”
