Call for Applications: CAE Concha Delgado Gaitán Presidential Fellows Program

The Council on Anthropology and Education (CAE), a section of the American Anthropological Association (AAA), is pleased to announce the eleventh year of the CAE Concha Delgado Gaitán Presidential Fellows Program. This endowed fellowship program supports the professional development and mentoring of educational anthropologists early in their academic careers.

Up to eight fellowships will be awarded for the 2020-21 academic year. Each fellowship includes:

1.   The establishment of mentoring relationship with a senior scholar in the field of educational anthropology, including virtual meetings during the CAE meetings in November 2020.

2.   Participation in a professional learning community with the new cohort and previous presidential fellows and mentors.

3.   A travel grant to support attendance at the November 2021 American Anthropological Association Meetings.

Eligibility: Educational anthropologists who have completed their doctoral degrees by August 2020 and no earlier than 2017. International scholars are welcomed. Scholars from underrepresented groups and institutions are especially encouraged to apply.

Application Procedure: Applicants should submit the following materials in a single e-mail.

1.   Curriculum vita.

2.   Statement of no more than two single-spaced pages, specifying scholarly and professional accomplishments, goals within the field of anthropology and education, previous involvement with CAE or AAA (if any), and areas in which mentoring will be beneficial to the applicant.

3.   One letter of reference and the names of two additional referees.

4.   Names of up to three active senior scholars in the CAE community with whom the applicant would benefit from a mentoring relationship.

The Concha Delgado Gaitán CAE Presidential Fellowships support early career educational anthropologists in ways that contribute to their success within the academy or broader communities of education policy and practice. In your statement describe: What are the central concerns and questions you address in your work? How does your scholarly and professional work contribute to CAE’s mission? What would you contribute to the cohort of fellows, if you are selected, and to the larger CAE community? Think about your contributions in terms of the things you know and care about, and how you would bring those perspectives to the work. What mentoring supports do you think might help you in order to make such contributions?

Selection procedure: Applications will be reviewed by a selection committee of established CAE scholars, chaired by the immediate past-president of CAE. The review process takes into account the quality of the application, the fit between CAE’s mission and the applicant’s work, and the potential benefits of mentoring. The selection committee will seek to ensure that a broad range of interests are represented within the selected cohort.

Application Deadline: October 16, 2020

Applicants notified by: October 23, 2020

Submit applications to: Peter Demerath, Past President of CAE: [email protected]

Announcement of CAE Program 2019

Greetings!

I look forward to seeing everyone at the annual meeting of the AAA in Vancouver. The Council on Anthropology & Education will feature an exciting program.

In addition to an outstanding set of sessions and roundtables, we have two special events planned:
The first is a conversation with Dr. Jan Hare, Director of UBC Indigenous Teacher Education Program. Dr. Hare will focus on Indigenous teacher education programs as critical sites of decolonization, reconciliation, and nation building. She will share about the context of teacher education in Canada along with similarities to the US (and elsewhere), and discuss opportunities for research/teaching/learning. It will take place on Thursday, Nov. 21, 10:30-11:45 AM, at the Sylvia Hotel Restaurant (1154 Gilford St.). Refreshments will be provided.

Second, you won’t want to miss the Ethnographic Fringe Salon. Organizer, Misha (Melisa) Cahnmann asks, “What does it mean to do ethnographic research as a creative writer, thinker, artist, doer? It is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 23, 4:00 –6:00 PM offsite at The Hangar at the Center for Digital Media (577 Great Northern Way, Vancouver, BC, V5T 1E1).

On Thursday, November 21, we also have the New Scholars (Poster) Gallery Session. It is a bit different this year. If you are a registered attendee – either a graduate student, not-yet-tenured faculty, or scholar/practitioner/educator in an educational setting (community organization, school, university, museum) – and would like to share about your research or what your school/organization is doing, please get in touch with Valerie Haywood ([email protected]). There are limited poster spots, so don’t delay in contacting Valerie. This is another opportunity to present at this year’s annual meeting.
The Gallery Session is scheduled for Thurs, 4:15–6PM Vancouver CC WEST | Ballroom Lobby | West Level

Friday’s highlight is the Past President’s Distinguished Lecture and Awards Recognition. It is scheduled for 12:15-1:45 PM Vancouver CC WEST |Room 201 | West Level 2

Friday night! It will be wonderful to socialize over over-priced hors d’oeurves, welcome new members, celebrate our 2019 George and Louise Spindler awardee, collaborate in our committees, and yes, do a bit of business. This is all happening at the Business, All –Committee Meeting and Social (with food & cash bar), 8:00 – 11:00 PM Vancouver CC WEST | Room 211 | West Level 2

In his message to AAA, Executive Director Ed Liebow writes about the local organizing committee (LOC) “working with representatives of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh, and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm First Nations, on whose unceded territory the Annual Meeting will take place. LOC member Susan Rowley of the UBC Museum of Anthropology has worked with the three host Nations to arrange the territorial welcome that will open the conference on Wednesday evening, according to their protocols. At the opening, a welcome and expression of support will be offered by a respected leader of the Musqueam Nation, who is specifically authorized to speak on behalf of the Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations as well. Douglas Cardinal, a renowned Métis/Blackfoot architect, will present the opening keynote, in conversation with past AAA President and University of Toronto professor Monica Heller. This is an event you won’t want to miss” (November 8, 2019).

I wish you all safe travels.
