We invite Northwestern faculty members to submit a proposal to the SPAN Fund for Curricular Innovation as part of SPAN’s new Curricular Fellowship Program. The Sexualities Project at Northwestern (SPAN) is a multi-pronged, critical, and interdisciplinary initiative to promote research and education on sexuality in social context. We are seeking to expand SPAN’s mission to include a curricular component designed to offer courses across a broad range of disciplines to provide undergraduate students with a solid interdisciplinary foundation in sexuality studies. These courses are meant to complement existing offerings in the Gender & Sexuality Studies Program (GSS), as well as to foster links between GSS and departments/programs that have not traditionally co-listed undergraduate courses with GSS.
Each SPAN Curricular Fellow will serve a three-year, non-renewable term. Our goal is to select three SPAN Fellows per year over each of the next three years, for an eventual total of nine Fellows at any given time. Any NU faculty member with a continuing or renewable appointment is eligible to submit a proposal, including professors of instruction.
Deadline: May 11, 2018
