Inscrições abertas para o Programa "The Fulbright Scholar-In-Residence (SIR)"

The Fulbright Scholar-In-Residence (SIR) program brings visiting scholars and professionals from abroad to lecture for one semester or academic year at U.S. colleges and universities that don't usually have the opportunity to host visiting scholars, such as: small liberal arts colleges, regional undergraduate universities, community colleges, and minority-serving institutions (Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic Serving Institutions and Tribal Colleges). Although the SIR program is a small component of the Fulbright family of programs, providing an estimated 46 grants in FY 2008, it is most beneficial to the hosting U.S. colleges and universities and their students, faculty and communities. Equally important, it is the only Fulbright program that enables visiting scholars to lecture at Institutions of Higher Education in the United States, thereby providing grantees with unique and significant professional benefits, a special opportunity for gaining an understanding of Americans and American institutions, society and culture, and the ability to take new-found teaching and community experiences with them upon returning home.

The primarily goal for the SIR would be to help create and enhance international content of the programs that will be used in the Language Institute. The development of the Language Institute is an institutional need that they hope to achieve within 5 years from now. The SIR is expected to take a leadership role in setting the academic framing for the type of programs that will be used. Additional responsibilities will be: (a) Widen the scope of study and enhance the international content in the courses offered in the school of Social and Human Sciences; (b) Promote student study abroad opportunities and partnerships between institutions of higher education in Central and South America, and Caribbean.

This is the nation's first public liberal arts institution founded for African-Americans which offers baccalaureate, master's and professional degrees. The University's mission is to educate students and prepare them to become successful citizens and future leaders in the today's diverse societies. North Carolina Central University requests a musicologist scholar to teach at the undergraduate level in the Music Department for the entire academic year of 2009-10. Courses of interest to be developed under the auspices of the faculty member Dr. Candace Bailey, would concentrate on "The Black Composer" and "The Music of Latin America." During the spring semester the lecture topics would be taught as a team with the current professors focusing on "Influences of the Latin Music on the Americas" and "Senior Seminar in Ethnomusicology". About 15-20 students are expected to participate in each of these classes per semester. The opportunity to learn from a Latin American Scholar on campus will provide an invaluable tool in situating music in different cultures and expanding students' horizon. Music, a universal phenomenon, serves as a unique way of exposing cultural differences to new generations who do not necessarily know the history of this region. The mission of the Music Department seeks to cultivate complete musicians who are able to think critically and be able to compete in the professional market. This cooperation between the Fulbright SIR program and the Musicology Department of North Carolina Central University will assist the department in achieving its goal in analyzing the influences that the music of the scholar's region had and continues to have on American music. The department of ethno musicology is new and as a result, the scholar is expected to provide assistance with the type of courses that will be offered in this program. This is a unique opportunity for the scholar to develop professionally, as new grounds need to be explored in this area.
