FOR 1995-96



The Chicano Fellows Program invites outstanding
teacher/scholars, either at the rank of assistant or new
associate professor, to apply for a one year appointment as a
visiting professor at Stanford University, effective September
1995. Applicants are welcome from any discipline in the
humanities or social science, especially anthropology,
economics, philosophy, sociology, feminist and cultural
studies. The appointment will be made in the appropriate
department within the school of Humanities and Sciences.

The primary aim of the Chicano Fellows Program is to prepare
graduate students to teach Chicano-related courses at the
university and college level. A secondary goal is to offer
undergraduate courses on Mexican Americans and the
Mexican-origin population. The visiting professor plays a
crucial role in fulfilling both goals of the Chicano Fellows

The Visiting Professor supervises and assists the graduate
teaching fellows in preparing and offering a course offered on
the subject of their respective dissertation topics. In
addition to mentoring the graduate teaching fellows, the
visiting professor also mentors undergraduate students with
the aim of providing them an ``insider's view'' of university
teaching and research. Finally, the visiting professor will
teach two courses per academic year on issues related to the
Mexican-origin population.

Applicants may send letter of application, curriculum vitae,
and names of three references to Professor Yvonne
Yarbro-Bejarano, Director, Chicana/o Fellows Program, Building
590, Room L, The Nitery, Stanford University, Stanford, CA
94305-3044. For further information, call (415) 723-4219 or
723-3091. Review of applications will begin after March 15,
1995 and continue until position is filled.
