For this V Intercultural Encounter, we call creators, professors, researchers, and students who are in dialogue with and from the multiple places of interpellations and epistemological utterances of the indigenous world. We call for papers on intercultural education, creation, and research from a wide range of themes, nuances, and explorations.
In the face of the continental conjuncture of a "new" extractive economy in which ancestral territories and first peoples are affected, the current indigenous cultural production is responding critically to such processes. We call participation in the form of recitals, performances, panels and keynote speakers on these issue.
In the most diverse hemisphere, Colombia presents the greatest diversity of birds on the planet. Through ancestral knowledge, via oral tradition and today through textualities and visualities, a poetic platform is in dialogue with birds. We call to reflect on the human-bird and human-not/human relationship, considering that the current indigenous practices are also epistemological fields that play key roles in the inter-species dialogue as well as in a respectful balance with Mother Earth. We also call on research and works of and about indigenous creators in the field of Self-Writing(s), understanding it as the forms of communication that transcend notation, phonetics, and grammar and that are able to articulate through gestures, visuals, graphics, uses of the body, and various traditional writings (weaving, ceramics, basketry, body painting, etc.) processes of cultural revival, autonomy, and self-awareness.
Competition Number: 2017ABL
Simon Fraser University
Metro Vancouver, British Columbia
The Beedie School of Business at Simon Fraser University in Metro Vancouver, British Columbia seeks outstanding candidates for a tenure-track position to build on the School’s strengths in the study and teaching of Indigenous business.
The School has created and established an Executive MBA in Aboriginal Business and Leadership, now in its third cohort, which draws students from across Canada and is the only program of its kind outside of New Zealand. The degree is part of SFU’s wider commitment to leadership in the scholarship of Indigenous issues, and community engagement more broadly. The School wishes to complement the development of globally-recognized graduate teaching in Indigenous business with an equally strong research base. It will be the new hire’s primary responsibility to work on and catalyze that research agenda. Meaningful research in this area will be first and foremost publishable in top academic journals, and additionally engaged with real-world issues and communities or organizations. The development of published teaching cases on Indigenous business would make a valuable contribution as part of the successful hire’s impactful research agenda, but ideally only in synergy with rigorous, peer-reviewed publications.
The successful candidate will have a strong research and publication record, or potential to develop such a record, in one or more of our existing areas of business including, but not limited to, organizational behaviour, entrepreneurship, sustainable development, public policy of business or strategy. We also welcome the interest of exceptional candidates with expertise in Aboriginal contexts who may have been trained in a core discipline like economics, sociology, law or political science, but who can see the potential in pivoting their research agenda to focus on business and related issues. We do expect candidates to be able to demonstrate familiarity with Indigenous business and economic development. Additionally, the candidate must have demonstrated teaching competence at the undergraduate, graduate, and/or executive education levels, with potential to become a very strong teacher to experienced executive MBA students. A Ph.D. is required by August 2018. Candidates of any rank are welcome to apply, however the School has a preference for an assistant or junior associate professor.
The Beedie School of Business is recognized as a top ranked research school, is accredited by both AACSB and EQUIS, and is signatory to Principles for Responsible Management Education. We have programs at the Undergraduate, Masters, Ph.D. and Executive levels, including Canada’s first Executive MBA program.
SFU Beedie was named following a $22 million gift from alumnus Ryan Beedie and his father Keith in 2011. The donation has allowed the school to build on its strong reputation as a global leader in research, while pursuing its strategic vision of developing innovative and socially responsible business leaders with a global perspective through education. The successful candidate will share Beedie’s commitment to diversity, engagement and generating positive change in its communities.
With three award-winning British Columbia campuses located in Burnaby, Surrey and downtown Vancouver, Simon Fraser University offers a strong research environment in a dynamic Pacific Rim setting that is ranked by the Economist Intelligence Unit as the world’s most liveable city. For further details about the Beedie School of Business, visit our website at http://www.beedie.sfu.ca/.
For best consideration, complete applications must be received by the initial deadline for applications, November 15, 2017, although applications will be accepted until the position is filled. A strong candidate whose job market timing will resolve before November can reach out to us earlier, noting the time conflict. We anticipate the position will start September 1, 2018 or on a mutually agreed upon date.
All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and Permanent residents will be given priority. SFU is committed to the principle of equity in employment and offers equal employment opportunities to qualified applicants. All positions are subject to budgetary approval and approval by the Board of Governors.
Under the authority of the University Act, personal information required by the University for academic appointment competitions will be collected. For further details see:
