A Post-American World(?)
KU faculty are invited to submit proposals for the nineteenth annual International Seminar for Faculty, scheduled for the Spring Semester, 2012. The Faculty International Seminar was initiated in the early 1990s as part of the internationalization efforts of International Programs. The Seminar is intended to give KU faculty an opportunity to present and discuss works in progress on a key theme in global or international studies. It is also intended to foster cross-disciplinary and cross-regional interaction among the seminar participants. The theme for this seminar this year is: “A post-American World.” As in past seminars, this theme should be construed as broadly as possible. Proposals from all disciplines in the University are welcome, and we encourage you to think broadly from within your specific discipline as you consider a proposal that speaks to this theme.
The seminar will meet weekly or bi-weekly during the spring semester, depending on the number of participants. We will meet at a time to be mutually determined at a location to be announced. The format is simple. Papers will be circulated one week in advance. At each session, one participant will present a summary of his/her research, and a discussion will follow. Past seminar participants have found the experience valuable not only for the chance to interact with colleagues from across the University, but also for the opportunity to broaden their perspectives by considering those from other disciplines. A further intention of this seminar is that faculty who present papers or projects will have subsequent success publishing versions of them in scholarly or other professional venues.
Participants in the Seminar will receive a stipend of $850 from International Programs. Participants must be tenured or tenure-track faculty at KU. Participants will be expected to:
