Call for Nominations

2017 Writing Fellowship and Writers' Retreat
June 11-17
Savannah, GA

Nominations due February 15, 2017

The Editors of Curriculum Inquiry are pleased to invite nominations for the 2017 Curriculum Inquiry Writing Fellowship (CIWF) and Writer’s Retreat, to be held in conjunction with the 2017 Curriculum Studies Summer Collaborative (CSSC) in Savannah, GA, June 11th to the 17th. Up to six Fellows will be selected to participate in a three-day writer’s retreat and workshop, culminating in a panel presentation at the CSSC conference and potential publication in a special issue of Curriculum Inquiry.

The CIWF seeks to support emerging scholars, including advanced doctoral students, recent graduates, and junior faculty (within three years of completing doctoral degree), who are contributing to new directions in curriculum studies, with a special emphasis on critical, anti-oppressive, decolonizing, Indigenous, and other approaches that seek to “Brown” or otherwise interrupt hegemonic and normative approaches to curriculum studies. Nominations for emerging scholars of color and Indigenous scholars are particularly encouraged.

The fellows will work with established faculty and members of the CI Editorial team toward the development of an article length manuscript to be presented at the CSSC conference and to be considered for publication in a Special Issue of the journal. Each selected fellow will be expected to submit an early draft of 3000 to 5000 words at least four weeks prior to the retreat. They will receive funding to cover travel expenses as well as conference registration fees.

Nominations for advanced doctoral students or junior faculty (within three years of completing doctoral degree) should be submitted online no later than February 15, 2017, and must include:

1. Nomination letter from thesis supervisor, department chair, or mentor who can comment on writing skills, background, and/or scholarship potential;
2. Curriculum Vitae;
3. An online fellowship application to be completed by nominee;
4. A 250-300 word abstract and a one-page outline of the proposed article to be developed;
5. A 3000-4000 word unpublished writing sample (may or may not be related to proposed article).
