Brown International Advanced Research Institutes (BIARI)

The Brown International Advanced Research Institutes (BIARI) was launched last year and seeks to develop an academic platform for young faculty from the global south, with Brown at its hub. BIARI 2009, with its four intensive two-week Institutes designed and led by Brown faculty, brought together 150 young scholars from 50 countries with over 70 leading academics who participated as invited guest faculty members. This year, the four BIARI will be: 1. Development and Inequality in the Global South (June 6 -19) 2. Towards a Critical Global Humanities (June 6 -19) 3.Climate Change and Its Impacts: Resilience and Adaptation to Changes in Precipitation (June 13-26) 4. Technology, Entrepreneurship and Management (June 13-26). The target group is junior faculty members, but applications from late-stage PhD candidates will be considered.
