FUNG GLOBAL FELLOWS PROGRAM
INSTITUTE FOR INTERNATIONAL AND REGIONAL STUDIES
PRINCETON UNIVERSITY

Princeton University is pleased to announce the call for applications to the Fung Global Fellows Program at the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies (PIIRS). Each year the program selects six scholars from around the world to be in residence at Princeton for an academic year and to engage in research and discussion around a common theme. Fellowships are awarded to scholars employed outside the United States who are expected to return to their positions, who have demonstrated outstanding scholarly achievement and exhibit unusual intellectual promise, but who are still early in their careers.

During the academic year 2017-18, the program theme will be "The Culture and Politics of Resentment." Resentment is a powerful emotion for expressing culture and politics. Experiences and memories of humiliation, oppression, and marginalization have stimulated emotions of resentment, and produced compelling demands for political inclusion and justice around the world. Alternatively, rage against what is seen as the "tyranny of the minority," inequality, the corruption and aloofness of elites, the "foreign," and the illegitimate have generated powerful populist upsurges against the perceived enemies of a homogeneous body of "the people." The goal of the 2017-18 Fung Global Fellows cohort will be to explore the full range of phenomena involved in the culture and politics of resentment, the conditions that produce such sentiments, and the projects they advance. We invite applications from scholars whose work addresses this topic in any historical period or region of the world and from any disciplinary background in the humanities and social sciences.

Applications are due on November 1, 2016. To be eligible, applicants must have received their Ph.D. (or equivalent) no earlier than September 1, 2007. Fellowships will be awarded on the strength of a candidate's proposed research project, the relationship of the project to the program's theme, the candidate's scholarly record, and the candidate's ability to contribute to the intellectual life of the program. For more information on eligibility requirements and the application process itself, see the program's website at http://www.princeton.edu/funggfp/

Princeton University is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
