The Zemurray-Stone Post-Doctoral Fellows in Latin American Studies are intended to foster the professional development of gifted scholars and specialists to enrich the Stone Center for Latin American Studies’ vigorous research environment, and to foster creative exchange across the Center's research community. We seek candidates engaged in scholarly or creative work on topics related to existing areas of institutional strength. Fellows are expected to participate in the full intellectual life of the Center, to sit on various Center subcommittees, and to contribute to the conceptualization and development of innovative projects and events during their residency. Fellows sometimes offer a class or seminar or participate in the planning of Center conferences during their fellowship year. The post-doctoral fellowship is for one-year with the possibility of renewal for an additional year.
We welcome applications from scholars and practitioners working in the fields of media, sound, and cultural studies who address transnational approaches, the study of modes and genres, the interface of film history and theory, and the centrality of intermediality and affective modes for the production and circulation of media in the Americas. These were areas and frameworks pioneered by the late Professor Ana M. López at Tulane. Fellowships are one-year, residential, full-time appointments. Applicants who are ABD must complete their Ph.D. by May 2024.

About Tulane University Stone Center for Latin American Studies
The Stone Center for Latin American Studies at Tulane University includes a core community of 70+ faculty across a broad spectrum of disciplinary and professional fields. From its foundation in 1834, Tulane University pursued a mission of advancing research in Latin America—one consolidated with the establishment of the Department of Middle American Research in 1924. From those beginnings, Tulane’s trajectory was rooted in its strategic location in the Mississippi River Valley that conferred on it a key role in the greater circum-Caribbean region. The strengths of SCLAS’s core faculty are in Cuba and the Caribbean (14), Central and Northern Andes (14), Brazil (12), Central America (12), Mexico (5) and the Southern Cone (5); eight cannot be identified with a single region. Tulane offers BA, MA, MA/MBA, MA/JD, PhD degrees in Latin American Studies, and a joint doctoral degree in Art History. Our mission is to ensure that students gain comprehensive knowledge about Latin America through a mixture of academic study, specialized training, and research abroad through programs that embrace linguistic fluency, fieldwork, and direct engagement in the region.
