Eakin Visiting Fellowship 2022-2023

Canadian Studies - Eakin Visiting Fellowship

2022-2023 Academic year

McGill University
Location: Montreal, Quebec (Canada)

The McGill Institute for the Study of Canada (MISC) is pleased to announce that it is now accepting applications for the Eakin Visiting Fellowship in Canadian Studies for the 2022/2023 academic year.

The Eakin Visiting Fellowship in Canadian Studies was created with the generous support of the Eakin Family in memory of William R. Eakin. It is awarded for periods of one or two academic semesters to an active scholar focusing on studies related to Canada. Typically, the award is granted to a scholar on sabbatical from an academic institution, but practitioners active in the field of public affairs are also encouraged to apply. The position is open, in terms of rank and discipline, to dynamic scholars who can enrich the study of Canada with fresh perspectives. The Fellowship may also be awarded to an individual outside of the academic community, whose writing, research or public career are making a significant contribution to intellectual life in Canada.

The incumbent is expected to teach one undergraduate course in Canadian Studies at McGill University, deliver the Eakin Lecture, participate in the activities of the Institute, and pursue exchanges with colleagues at McGill and other institutions.

The Fellowship will offer a stipend of $17,500 per semester.

Applicants are invited to send:

• Letter of Application
• Curriculum Vitae
• Letter of Reference
• Course Proposal for an Advanced Seminar in Canadian Studies (one page maximum)
• Indication of term preference: Fall 2022, Winter 2023, or a full year
