The Five College Women's Studies Research Center (FCWSRC), located in the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts, USA, is now accepting applications for its research associateship program.
The center is supported by Amherst, Hampshire, Mount Holyoke, and Smith Colleges, as well as the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Its main purpose is to encourage engaged, critical feminist scholarship from diverse perspectives. To this end, it hosts up to fifteen scholars and activists each year for three to eight months.
The Center invites applications for its research associateships for 2011-2012 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. The Center supports projects in all disciplines so long as they focus centrally on women or gender.
