The TORCH Global South Visiting Professorships will welcome participation from Visitors in our TORCH networks and programmes, which includes ‘Performance’, ‘Environmental Humanities’, ‘Medical Humanities’, and ‘Race and Resistance’. We will seek applications specifically from institutions in the Global South, including countries listed as part of the G77 (Group of 77 is an intergovernmental organisation of developing countries in the United Nations) – List available here:
The TORCH Global South Professorships will be crucial in the work of providing role models and embedding expectations on diversity and inclusivity in the wider University. This scheme builds on and reinforces existing links between Oxford (including TORCH), Mellon, and Universities in the countries named above.
This is part of the Mellon funded 'Humanities and Identities' TORCH annual headline series.
The next deadline for the TORCH Global South Visiting Professorship scheme 2020-2021 is Friday 14 February, noon.
