March 15, 2011, Volume 57, No. 25

Nominations are invited for the Brownlee Term Chair in Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies, to be awarded for a 5-year term (beginning July 2011) to a tenured member of the SAS faculty who has achieved distinction in scholarship and teaching on women, gender, or sexuality. Self-nominations and nominations by department chairs are welcomed, as well as nominations by any other Penn SAS faculty member. The recipient will receive a research fund of $5,000 per year.

A requirement of holding the chair is that the individual teach at least one course each year on women, gender, or sexuality that will be cross-listed with the Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies (GSWS) Program. The Brownlee Term Chair honors the late Dr. Jean Brownlee, dean of Penn’s College for Women, 1960-1974 (Almanac January 31, 1995).

Nominations should be sent by April 15, 2011 to: Brownlee Chair Committee, the Alice Paul Center, 411 Claudia Cohen Hall/6304, or e-mail to lmarin@sas.upenn.edu

Include a one page nomination statement regarding the individual’s contributions to scholarship and teaching on women, gender, and/or sexuality (this may be a self-nomination) and a CV.

In the case of a nomination by a department chair, the chair must include a statement that the faculty member, if selected for a chair, will be allowed to teach at least one course each year of the five-year term on women, gender, or sexuality and that this course will be cross-listed with Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies Program. In the case of a self-nomination, the individual should state what course or courses s/he would teach and cross-list with GSWS, and s/he must include a letter from her or his chair or dean stating that if awarded the chair, s/he will be allowed to teach one course cross-listed with GSWS each of the five years.

A faculty committee will select the person they regard as the best candidate and the recommendation will be forwarded to Dean Bushnell. The criteria for this honor are excellence and impact in research and teaching on women, gender, and/or sexuality. The selection will be guided by the University’s normal equal opportunity policies; the position is open to faculty members of any sex.

If you have questions, feel free to contact Demie Kurz, acting director of the Alice Paul Center and the Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies Program, 898-8740, dkurz@sas.upenn.edu
