The Department of Romance Studies at Duke University is seeking a Visiting Scholar for a period of up to 3 months in Spring 2023 as part of the Ecologies of Knowledge Network initiative. We welcome scholars from the Global South whose work seeks to challenge and readdress Western-centric epistemology. Preference in this round will be given to candidates who specialize in legal issues in Africa. Visiting Scholars will have the opportunity to interact with students, faculty and staff across the university. They may be present (but not enrolled) in courses, participate in seminars, colloquia and other events that will allow them to present their own research and learn from the Duke community. Please submit a CV and cover letter. Applications received by December 6, 2022, will receive full consideration, though the position will remain open until filled.
