The Program in Latin American Studies is launching an open call for applications for the 2013‐2014 visiting fellowships.

Applications will be accepted from outstanding scholars in the humanities and social sciences, as well as from established writers, artists, filmmakers, or architects working on projects relating to Latin America who are stellar teachers.
Fellows will be appointed for either one or two semesters during the academic year, 2013‐2014 (fall
semester: September 1, 2013‐January 31, 2014; spring semester: February 1‐June 30, 2014). The Office of the Dean of the Faculty determines salary on the basis of current academic rank and award duration; appointment rank at Princeton is determined on the basis of seniority and current institutional affiliation.
