The Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation invites faculty, doctoral, and postdoctoral students to apply for its Visiting Fellowships.
The Ash Center aims to support research on democratic governance that addresses substantive concerns and offers normative or practical guidance regarding those concerns.
We are broadly interdisciplinary and invite scholars who use approaches from political theory and philosophy, political science, sociology, law, or history. We are especially interested in drawing scholars whose work focuses on two areas: (i) innovations in public participation and (ii) political participation in non-democracies.
The duration of the fellowship is one academic year, from August 15, 2014 until June 1, 2015. Visiting Fellows will be expected to participate in a regular graduate workshop and engage in the activities of the Ash Center and Harvard Kennedy School more broadly. The Ash Center Visiting Fellowships do not carry a stipend, but we can offer institutional supports including office space and physical and on-line library access.

To submit an application, please send one or two relevant paper manuscripts or articles, a current CV, and a brief description of the work that you plan to do while in residence at the Ash Center to Archon Fung, â„… Juanne Zhao, email@example.com with subject â€œAsh Center Visiting Fellowship."
The application deadline for the 2014-2015 fellowship is October 1, 2013.
