Bridgewater State College seeks Canadian scholars or persons of prominence to spend one or two semesters in residence at the college and be appointed a Killam Professor of Canadian Studies during that period. The appointment may be made in any discipline.
This endowed professorship was established to infuse new and exciting Canadian content into the curricula and courses at the college in areas of current or future importance; elevate the understanding of Canadian issues and culture in the Southeastern Massachusetts region; provide opportunities for interaction between students at the college and a person of expertise and stature in Canadian issues; and provide opportunities for collaboration between Bridgewater faculty and Canadian scholars on an extended basis.
The Killam Professor will be expected to teach one course per semester at Bridgewater State College, make presentations to the college community and local organizations as appropriate, and participate in research in collaboration with Bridgewater faculty and/or students as appropriate. The term of appointment will normally be one semester, but two semesters may be arranged by mutual agreement between the college and the visitor. A stipend will be negotiated at a competitive level.
Potential awardees will be considered through nominations by a colleague; self nominations will not be considered. Selection will be based on the nominee's stature, campus intellectual needs, timeliness of the person's expertise, and overall benefits to Bridgewater students and faculty and the region.
Nominations are accepted at any time. Nominations and inquiries should be directed to:
Dr. Anthony Cicerone
Director of Canadian Studies
