Fulbright Canada and Brock University have been working together for several years on an initiative that invites American scholars to spend a semester at Brock conducting research and/or guest lecturing in North American and transnational studies.
The Visiting Research Chair in Transnational Studies opportunity is open to promising and prominent American scholars as well as experienced professionals.
Research areas for the position include writing across borders, transnational cultures, languages, citizenship and migration, including approaches to First Nations issues, histories of the cross-border region, border studies, Canadian-American relations, and the image of Canada abroad.
The Centre for Canadian Studies at Brock recently introduced a new joint MA in Canadian and American Studies with the State University of New York, University at Buffalo.

The Fulbright scholar program is part of this larger initiative.
