The Sawyer Doctoral Fellow participates in an international seminar series while pursuing an active program of research. The Sawyer Seminar Series on Knowledge, Diversity & Power aims to initiate an ongoing scholarly dialogue on knowledge, diversity and power across disciplines and regions, particularly in relation to health, law, environmental knowledge and the sciences. Such a dialogue will be broad in scope: taking account of regional political economies of knowledge; cosmologies and ontologies, epistemes, and embodiments. The series aims to initiiate debates that move beyond simplistic forms of relativism and to establish grounds for a more productive interaction of different forms of knowledge within the University, and the Polis. Applicants in the process of preparing completed research for publication will be preferred. The specific area of focus will be mutually agreed upon between the Fellow, the Principal Investigator and/or Supervisor appointed by the Department of Social Anthropology at the University of Cape Town. Sawyer Fellows will have the benefit of 12 months of participation in an international seminar series, while pursuing an active program of research.
