Source : India Education Review
Nov 21, 2012

In a bid to honour the legacy of Swami Vivekananda and his teachings, the University of Chicago has established 'The Indian Ministry of Culture Vivekananda Chair’. The Chair will be a visiting professorship which will be taken over by a senior scholar of significant academic distinction in a field of study promoted by Swami Vivekananda.

 

The holder of this distinguished Chair will remain in residence for one quarter of the academic year to teach, conduct research, and engage with the intellectual community of the US university. Intended to promote fields of study such as human values, Indian philosophy, and movements for social change, the Chair is funded by the Ministry of Culture, Government of India.

 

The Committee on Southern Asian Studies at the University of  Chicago is inviting suggestions of candidates whose research work falls into one or more of  the fields of  study most relevant to the teachings and legacy of Swami Vivekananda (human values, social change, and Indian philosophy) and who possess demonstrated records of  scholarly excellence and pedagogical accomplishment.

 

Each incumbent will ideally hold the position for a period of two years returning each year for one quarter.  In addition to the expected academic activities on campus, the holder will give each year a public presentation on a topic that exemplifies, honors, and promotes the legacy of Swami Vivekananda.

 

The position includes salary, travel costs, local accommodation, and coverage of expenses connected with the annual presentation.

 

Academicians can send a letter giving the nominee's name and field of study and explaining the nominee's scholarly eminence. To directly apply for the position, please send a cover letter explaining the field of study and interest, together with a CV.

 

Nominations or applications should be sent by email to the University of Chicago Indian Ministry of Culture Vivekananda Chair Search Committee at vivek&nanda@uchicago.edu
