The CEU Global Teaching Fellowship Program (GTFP) started in January 2015 as a small scale experiment to find short-term teaching positions for CEU advanced PhD candidates and recent PhD graduates. Fast forward to fall 2016 and GTFP is now a full-fledged program running two calls for applications per year for over 20 teaching positions at universities around the world.
Academic year 2016-17started with 14 new GT Fellows teaching at universities in eight countries:
Suparna Das (Economics) – Asian University for Women (Chittagong, Bangladesh);
Damir Cicic (Philosophy 2016), Milos Milicevic (Environmental Sciences), and Izabela Survillo (International Relations) – Univates University (Lajeado, Brazil);
Adina Maricuţ (Political Science 2016) – Bard College Berlin (Berlin, Germany);
Sanja Tepavcevic (Political Science 2014) – Budapest Business School and University of Applied Sciences (Budapest, Hungary);
Anatoly Reshetnikov (International Relations) and Andreea Nicutar (International Relations) – Eotvos Lorand University (Budapest, Hungary);
Attila Gaspar (Economics) – Universitas Muhammadiyah (Yogyakarta, Indonesia);
Frank Karioris (Gender Studies 2016) and Andrea-Bianka Znorovszky (Medieval Studies 2016) – American University of Central Asia (Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan);
Ali Diskaya (Political Science) – Al-Quds Bard College (East Jerusalem);
Georgiana Turculet (Political Science) and Neda Deneva (Sociology) – Babes-Bolyai University (Cluj, Romania).
And this is just half of the story. In December 2016 the program will be launched in Myanmar – another milestone in CEU's partnership with the Open Society Foundation to assist the higher education reform in Myanmar. A group of four GT Fellows will be teaching there for one semester: Karla Koutkova (Public Policy '16) and Margaryta Rimarenko (International Relations) at the University of Yangon; Natalia Peral (Political Science '16) and Sokol Lleshi (Political Science '16) at the University of Mandalay.
More fellows will take up teaching positions from January 2017: Zlata Bozac (Philosophy) at Kaunas University of Technology (Kaunas, Lithuania), David Pupovac (Political Science) at Lazarski University (Warsaw, Poland), Sasikumar S. Sundaram (International Relations) at Univates University, Brazil. The list is far from complete as several calls for applications for winter/spring 2017 are underway.
