Idaho Society of Fellows | Post-doc Opportunities at the University of Idaho
The University of Idaho and the Idaho Society of Fellows are inviting applications for the 2022–23 academic year. Housed in the College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences, the Society constitutes a new initiative to broaden the sphere of interdisciplinary and collaborative research in the humanities and social sciences.
Each year, the Society will recruit three postdoctoral fellows for two-year appointments. The fellows will teach two general education courses per year and will otherwise engage in their research and participate in the academic life of the college. These postdoctoral fellowships will provide professional support and development and work closely with faculty mentors and graduate students and will engage in interdisciplinary initiatives across the campus.
The fellowships are generously funded by CLASS endowments and a partnership with the Office of Research and Economic Development. Candidates are drawn from the following fields:
- Political science
- International/global studies.

Post-War Anti-Statism in Montana Ranching Communities: Renfrew Interdisciplinary Colloquium
Save the Date! March 24, 2022 Symposium
During the past few decades, more-than-human studies has experienced a veritable explosion of scholarship across the globe, including in North America, especially within and related to times of violence. Seeking to add to that conversation, this symposium brings together leading scholars in animal studies who have investigated these questions in diverse settings across the Americas. Their research topics range from the treatment of wild and exotic animals displayed on the Las Vegas Strip, Indigenous-equine relationships, ongoing struggles of Mexican animal rights activists working in the Mexico-U.S. borderlands, and the non-human lives and bodies affected by Peru’s late twentieth-century armed conflict.
Consisting of two plenary panels on March 24, the symposium asks its presenters and attendees to consider a series of questions related to more-than-human studies in times of violence.
More details to follow, including a CFP for faculty and graduate students to participate in the research-in-progress session on March 25.
