Please circulate


A collaborative project of Amherst, Hampshire, Mount Holyoke, and
Smith Colleges and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst

The Center invites applications for its Research Associateships for
2004-2005 from scholars and teachers at all levels of the educational
system, as well as from artists, community organizers and political
activists, both local and international. Associates are provided with
offices in our spacious facility, computer access, library privileges,
and the collegiality of a diverse community of feminists. Research
Associate applications are accepted for either a semester or the
academic year. The Center supports projects in all disciplines so long
as they focus centrally on women or gender. Research Associateships are
non-stipendiary. However, international applicants with expertise in
Latin America, Asia or Europe may apply for one of the two special
one-semester Ford Associateships for Fall 2004 or Spring 2005, which
offer a stipend of  $12,000, plus a $3,000 housing/travel allowance in
return for teaching  (in English) one undergraduate course at Mount
Holyoke College. The Weissman Center for Leadership and the Liberal Arts
will co-sponsor the associates and invites applicants to consider
contributing to our year-long focus on The World and Water: (Re)Source
of Power in the 21st Century with a special emphasis on design
(architectural, furniture, graphic, or product design as well as urban
and landscape design), documentary studies in film and photography or
performance in an international context.   Preference given to
applicants with performance or production experience and whose work
crosses traditional academic boundaries. Applications welcomed from
visual artists, film and video makers, architects and designers, dancers
and actors, as well as academic scholars. Ford applicants need not be
studying their own region of origin.

Applicants for both programs should submit a project proposal (up to 4
pages), curriculum vitae, two letters of reference, and application
cover sheet. In addition, Ford applicants should submit a two-page
description of a women^s studies course they are prepared to teach,
which includes their pedagogical goals and techniques. Submit all
applications to: Five College Women^s Studies Research Center, Mount
Holyoke College, 50 College Street, South Hadley, MA 01075-6406.
