Third Annual Brown International Advanced Research Institutes (BIARI) – June 2011

26 January, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

International Affairs at Brown University is pleased to announce the third annual Brown International Advanced Research Institutes (BIARI). Inaugurated in June 2009, this major faculty development initiative convenes high-level academic Institutes on Brown’s campus each summer. Organized by discipline and designed and run by recognized scholars, each Institute addresses the canonical and cutting-edge questions of the field, and contributes to building the next generation of transnational academic community.

.

The objective of the BIARI program is to provide a platform for promising young faculty from the global south and emerging economies to engage in a high level and sustained intellectual and policy dialogue with leading scholars in their fields and each other. Institutes foster scholarly networks among young faculty, while providing them with an opportunity to develop their scholarship agendas.

This ambitious program is designed to provide needed professional development opportunities for young scholars embarking on lives in research and teaching. The Brown International Advanced Research Institutes are a fundamental plank in President Ruth Simmons’ vision for Brown’s continuing internationalization. The BIARI program, under the guidance of International Affairs and its vice-president Matthew Gutmann, aims to make a significant contribution to global research through transnational academic collaboration, promoting Brown University’s vision of the global university.

Each Institute is organized as a mix of lectures, round table discussions, group work, field trips, cultural events and social interactions.  Each is led by a team of distinguished Brown faculty who have invited world-renowned lecturers and speakers to join and participate in the Institute’s formal and informal activities. Institutes are residential, with accommodations and meals provided.

The Institutes are academically rigorous and admission is highly competitive. Financial support is available for international participants–for successful applicants from countries outside of North America and the European Union, full financial support is available.

The Brown International Advanced Research Institutes will promote knowledge about innovative theory, research and methodologies for studying inequality in developing countries. Particular emphasis will be placed on exploring the specific dimensions and impacts of inequality on development across regions of the global south, and developing a comparative understanding of these dynamics.
