Heilbroner Fellowship in Capitalism Studies

The Robert L. Heilbroner Center for Capitalism Studies at The New School for Social Research invites applications for the Heilbroner Fellowship in Capitalism Studies, to be held for one or both semesters of the 2018-2019 academic year. Rank is open, but we seek a scholar who will contribute significantly to the flourishing activities of the Center.

The responsibilities of the position include residence, teaching one graduate level course, organizing the work-in-progress series and annual symposium for graduate student fellows, participating in the faculty fellows’ work-in-progress group, and, in general, contributing to the life of the Center. Title, salary, and benefits will be commensurate with rank and experience.

Capitalism Studies is an emerging area of interdisciplinary teaching and research that engages critically with contemporary economic arrangements through diverse inquiries into the many forms of capitalism.

We encourage applications from scholars working on the following themes: financialization, work and social reproduction, post-capitalism, sustainability, racial capitalism, emergent infrastructures of capitalism, precarity and informality, ecology and political economy, global perspectives on inequality, and contemporary or historical perspectives on global reconfigurations of labor, trade, and finance.
