Gender, Diversities, and Technology Institute Fellows

The Fellows Program at the Gender, Diversities, and Technology Institute brings together scholars, practitioners, and community representatives in collaboratives to examine the social and cultural issues that affect the lives of women and men. Fellows bring their field-based and/or academic experiences to the Institute and engage in a range of activities that encourage exchange among diverse settings, creation of new approaches and ideas, and dialogue across cultures, regions, and experiences. U.S.-based and international Fellows often work in a parallel manner on similar issues in order to promote cross-cultural exchange.

In 2002 a number of GDI Fellows participated in an Inter-American forum entitled the Role of Education in Preventing Gender-based Violence, held in San José, Costa Rica. Other initiatives included development and delivery of an online course in masculinities and raising boys, as well as development of a project addressing the effects of violence on women's lives.

Fellows may participate in a Fellow-in-residence exchange at Education Development Center, publish research or reflections through the Institute, develop a collaborative project, or initiate other activities that join theory and practice in work that utilizes a gender perspective.

Most Fellows are unpaid appointments, with such services as publication of research or use of office space and materials being provided in exchange for involvement in activities with GDI staff. If you are interested in applying to be a 2003 GDI Fellow, please forward your curriculum vitae and a brief summary of a proposed activity or exchange that you would like to carry out with the Institute to:
