Visiting Scholars and Research Fellows Program for The Vulnerability and the Human Condition Initiative | Emory University

Our visiting scholar program draws in scholars and activists from around the world. Initially launched as part of the Feminism and Legal Theory Project, the visiting scholars program is currently housed under the Vulnerability and Human Condition Initiative. Visiting Scholar residencies range from a week to a year or more. Visiting Scholars are provided with a shared office and library privileges, as well as access to Emory's vibrant community of scholars and other resources, including those of the Feminism and Legal Theory archive.

Recent scholar biographies and interviews are available on the “Visiting Scholars” tab to the left.
