Witwatersrand-Cambridge Exchange Programme Announced

last modified Sep 19, 2017 01:20 PM
The SARChI/Newton Bilateral NRF/British Academy Research Chair in Political Theory, University of the Witwatersrand (Wits), Johannesburg, and Department of Politics and International Studies (POLIS), University of Cambridge, hereby announces a new academic exchange programme.

Early career lecturers, postdoctoral fellows and PhD students whose research in political theory (broadly conceived) would benefit from spending time in the other institution are encouraged to apply for this scheme. The scheme can accommodate visits for one month up to six months in either institution. This exchange programme is one of the central pillars of the Bilateral Research Chair in Political Theory, held by Professor Lawrence Hamilton, who as a condition of the Chair is based at Wits for the first six months of each calendar year and at POLIS for the second six months of the year. Researchers should ideally therefore arrange their stay so that it coincides with the teaching terms at Wits and Cambridge and includes some overlap with his movements (though this is not mandatory if timings can not work out this way).
