Rice University Diluvial Houston Initiative – Postdoctoral Fellow in Environmental Justice
With support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Humanities Research Center (HRC) at Rice University will award one postdoctoral fellowship for a one-year appointment in Environmental Justice, with the possibility of a one-year renewal. We invite applicants from the humanities or interpretive social sciences whose research and teaching consider the wide range of histories, theories, and practices of environmental justice, including the workings of environmental racism and the differing and inequitable relationships to a range of ecological concerns (disaster, toxicity, climate, sustainability, pollution, biodiversity loss, resource availability, indigeneity, economic opportunity, public health, land use, and many more). The fellow will develop or continue his or her own research project, participate in the HRC’s Diluvial Houston Initiative and the Center for Environmental Studies, mentor graduate and undergraduate students, and teach two courses per year.
This position is for July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021. It is a full-time, benefits eligible, one-year appointment, renewable for a second year. The fellow will receive an annual salary of $55,000 and a $3,000 allowance for research and/or relocation to Houston.

Over the years, a number of works analyzed the influences and prospects of these movements, including, in 1995, Ecological Resistance Movements: the global emergence of radical and popular environmentalism. In recent years there appears to be an upsurge in direct action and other forms of environmental resistance, including resistance at Gezi Park in Turkey, the Belo Monte Dam in Brazil, to the gates of the White House in Washington DC. We seek to focus scholarly attention on this resurgence and seek proposals analyzing them. Continue reading
