Visiting Scholars Program and Other Opportunities


WGSS is pleased to welcome Phyllis Thompson as our visiting scholar for the 2013-2014 academic year


Visiting Scholars Program

The Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program at Northeastern annually offers Research Associate positions to scholars researching issues related to women, gender, and/or sexuality in the humanities and social sciences. Visiting scholars work on their related projects while in residence for the semester or academic year at Northeastern University. Scholars must have their own financial support, but are provided with office space, library privileges, and support for photocopy, fax and postage expenses related to research.

Located in the heart of Boston, Northeastern University is ideally located for scholars. Beyond its proximity to Boston's vibrant cultural and artistic life, Northeastern is near several major research libraries, including the Boston Public Library and the Schlesinger Library at Radcliffe College, as well as numerous academic institutions that make the intellectual life of Boston one of the richest in the world.

The application process for visiting scholars for the 2014-2015 academic year has closed. Please visit our Current Visiting Scholars page for more information on who was selected for this academic year.

The application process for the 2015-2016 academic year will open in early 2015. Please check back here for more information at that time. In the meantime, please contact WGSS program coordinator Kiki Samko by email for more information.
