Candidates must hold a PhD – conferred no later than 2020 – in a humanities or social science discipline. This is not a postdoctoral position.
Capitalism Studies in an emerging area of interdisciplinary teaching and research that engages critically with capitalism in its myriad contemporary and historical varieties.
The Heilbroner Visiting Scholar will receive $12,000 to support a research, teaching, or creative/design project that connects with students and faculty at the New School. The award may be used to hire an NSSR graduate student for research or administrative support; to convene an event or series; to advance collaboration culminating in a co-edited or co-authored publication or a creative/design equivalent; to subsidize housing costs. An office and library privileges will be provided. While in residence, the Heilbroner Visiting Scholar will participate in the faculty fellows’ monthly work-in-progress group, and, in general, contribute to the life of the Center. (In-person residence will be contingent on the status of the COVID-19 pandemic and any related policies).
We encourage applications on the following themes: gender, care, and social reproduction; post-capitalism; global trade, finance, and labor after COVID19; extraction and ecology; racial capitalism; fintech and other emergent infrastructures; precarity and informality; money, currency, and empire.
