INTERACT’s primary goal is to improve global literacy among Columbia students and equip them to be leaders in a globalizing world. These objectives will be met through innovative courses, participating in institute programs and events and an annual educator workshop organized collaboratively by INTERACT Fellows.
The Institute for Comparative Literature and Society’s INTERACT Fellows will devote half their time to teaching and working with other Fellows on INTERACT programming, and half their time to their own research and writing. The Fellow’s curricular responsibility would be to develop one course each semester (Fall 2010 and Spring 2011), preferably in coordination with Columbia’s developing Global Core Curriculum (for more information see: http://www.college.columbia.edu/core/classes/mc.php). Each Fellow is required to be in residence in the New York City area and participate in all activities of the INTERACT program collaborative.
The following list of materials is required for all applicants:
- Instruction Sheet
- Completed Application Form
- Curriculum vitae
- Course proposal: 2-3 page proposal for two undergraduate courses to be offered at Columbia University. These courses are to be offered without prerequisites and must emphasize cross-border, trans-regional, and interdisciplinary approaches. These course proposals are meant to convey a sense of your teaching interests beyond the special field of your research.
- Research proposal: 2-3 page statement describing the research project you would pursue at Columbia University if awarded a fellowship, indicating its relation (if any) to your doctoral dissertation, as well as its relation to the mission of ICLS.
- Letters of recommendation: 3 letters of reference (signed and sealed) that include an evaluation of your research and teaching proposals.
- Previous Education: Indicate on your curriculum vitae each college and university you have attended, with the inclusive dates.
