ECOMUSEUMS 2014 - 2nd CALL FOR PAPERS / CALL FOR PANELS PROPOSALS 28 February 2014, ECOMUSEUMS 2014 2nd International Conference on Ecomuseums, Community Museums and Living Communities September 3-5, 2014 * Montalegre * Portugal-

2nd International Conference on Ecomuseums, Community Museums and Living Communities follows the path established by its first conference and (as the predecessor) aims at gathering scholars, academics and practitioners working in the areas of Ecomuseums and Community Museums all over the world in an event that may contribute to the global discussion and understanding of the ecomuseums and community museums phenomena. The ecomuseum movement has its origins in late 1960's France when the roles museums can play in linking people, their heritage expressions and places, as well as affecting social change, were examined. At this time, traditional museum activities, which centered on the collection of heritage to be interpreted by curators and other museum professionals within a museum building, were viewed as both limited and exclusive in approach. In more recent decades, ecomuseums have been established throughout the world and are guided by a variety of differing aims and objectives. For example, an ecomuseum may resemble a more conventional museum in appearance or, in other cases, an open–air community-controlled heritage project, depending on the place. It can be considered that this wide range of ecomuseological and community-based museological initiatives demonstrates an international interest in alternative heritage management approaches. For this reason, Ecomuseums 2012 seeks to bring together scholars, researchers, architects and heritage professionals to discuss the commonalities, differences and future of safeguarding practices that are holistic and community oriented in scope. As in the previous edition Early Stage Researchers are welcome to share the results of their research projects, namely post-graduation projects and doctoral projects among others. Special registration conditions are previewed for their best contributions, under the Scientific Committee evaluation. ECOMUSEUMS 2014 is a peer reviewed conference. Visit the conference website for full details about the conference scope, topics and submission procedures at: http://www.ecomuseums2014.greenlines-institute.org

Deadline 2/20/14: NWSA Call for Proposals Feminist Transgressions, November 13 – 16, 2014 San Juan, Puerto Rico
NWSA's 2014 conference theme, dimensions, and political stakes of various feminist insubordinations in the spaces they occupy: intellectual and institutional, local and global, public and intimate, by choice and under duress. Mobilizing the multivalent concept of transgression helps reframe interrogations and impositions into those locations where we labor, love, defy, resist, protest, play, create, and/or celebrate.

PUBLIC, A Journal of Imagining America - CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS Volume 2 Issue 2: Hybrid, Evolving, and Integrative Career Paths Submission window open between January 15th and 30th, 2014.
What alternatives to siloed, static, or linear job trajectories do public scholars, designers, and artists generate? How are skills associated with one discipline applied to something else, in some cases by moving between an academic position and on-the-ground engagement? Submissions may include reflection on, analysis of, or strategies for expanding beyond the mono-disciplinary framing in which one's position may be rooted; employment conceived as interdisciplinary; collaborations between and among different sectors; or development of other expertise to handle the expansive projects to which artists, designers, and scholars in public life may be drawn. Public is also interested in how graduate students and other pre-professionals pursue such pathways.

Registration is now open for the 2014 Graduate Research & Creativity Expo, to be held on April 1, 2014.

The Graduate School and the Office of Research & Economic Development are proud to sponsor this year's Graduate Research & Creativity Expo, coming up on April 1, 2014. Once again there will be $1,000 prizes available to the best presentation in each of six (6) categories. This event is designed to showcase graduate research and creative work to a variety of non-specialized audiences (it is not intended to substitute for an academic conference in your discipline). Be a part of helping the larger public to understand why graduate education matters and how it contributes to a better society on many levels.

Registration will close on Friday, January 31 at 11:59pm and is limited by space constraints to 100 posters and 28 fifteen-minute presentations/video installations. Confirmation emails will go out within two weeks of registering to let you know whether or not you are registered or have been placed on the waiting list. Students who register in time to claim a spot should anticipate acceptance provided that their presentation is based on meaningful research or creative work as appropriate.

All forms of presentation will be evaluated on an equal footing (there is no hierarchy implied in the choice of one format over another). Poster presenters are strongly encouraged to treat the poster as a visual aid; remember that your poster is not intended to speak for you and that you must actively present your work and make it accessible to your audience(s). Space is limited for panel presentations and priority will be given to registrants whose creative work does not translate well into the poster format. Registrants are strongly discouraged from "reading" a paper and must engage with the audience.

Please visit http://grs.uncg.edu/events/grc-expo/ to review the evaluation rubric, more details on the format, and additional resources. You will find the online registration form itself, along with screen shots of the form that can be viewed in advance so that you will know how to prepare to register. Related workshops and other resources will continue to be added to the site. Save the date and make plans now to showcase your work (and perhaps to win $1,000 and bragging rights)!

Perilman Post-Doctoral Fellowship

The Center for Jewish Studies at Duke University invites applications for the Perilman Post-Doctoral Fellowship in any field of Jewish Studies for the 2014-2015 academic year, with the possibility of renewal for the following year. The Fellowship provides a stipend of $39,264 (US) per year, as well as benefits, for one full year. The Fellow will be expected to present a public lecture on his or her research in the Fall of 2014, to teach one undergraduate course in Spring 2015, and participate in the intellectual life of the Center. The Fellow may not undertake any other sustained teaching or employment during his/her tenure at Duke. Preference will be given to candidates whose area of research and teaching most enriches the offerings already available on campus and who presence in the Research Triangle promises the greatest contribution to faculty and student intellectual community, as well as those for whom the use of the Duke library holdings and Special Collections will be most profitable. This postdoctoral fellowship honors the memory of Rabbi Nathan Perilman, who, after serving at Temple Emmanu-El in New York City, joined the Triangle-area Jewish in his retirement.

Applicants must have earned the PhD within the past three years. Advanced doctoral students applying must include a statement from their dissertation supervisor indicating that they will have the PhD in hand by August 15, 2014.

Deadline 2/3: Non-Profit Paid Internship Program

The Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation believes summer internships offer a crucial pathway to future employment and experience for the next generation of nonprofit leaders. However, the universality of unpaid internships in the nonprofit sector often creates financial hurdles for students to participate in such experiential learning. In an effort to diversify the pool of young nonprofit professionals in North Carolina, ZSR established the Non-Profit Internship Program (NPIP) in 2011. Each summer, the program awards 20 college and university students, enrolled in four-year institutions across the state, with paid internships at ZSR-grantee organizations that are working to advance the Foundation's values in the areas of Community Economic Development, Public Education, Social Justice & Equity, Environment, and/or Strengthening Democracy. Participating organizations receive student applications from ZSR and interview applicants directly. Organizations that match with an intern are confirmed through ZSR and interns begin work with the organization in June.
