The Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies (LA&PS) has announced the recipients of four inaugural postdoctoral fellowships. Fellows receive a funded, one-year postdoctoral research position to conduct their proposed research project under the guidance of a faculty supervisor. Fellows will receive $50,000 over the next academic year.

Teddy Atim is a visiting fellow at the Feinstein International Center at Tufts University. She will work with supervisor Annie Bunting, an associate professor in the Law & Society program. Bunting is also the project director for the Conjugal Slavery in War (CSiW) Partnership, a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) Partnership Grant. Atim’s project is titled, “The legacies for wartime sexual violence in northern Uganda: Social reintegration of women survivors and children born of war in northern Uganda.” Her project will examine the contextual factors that shape and influence wartime sexual violence, and women’s agency to overcome their wartime experiences.

“I’m thrilled to congratulate our inaugural postdoctoral fellows for their successful applications,” said J.J. McMurtry, dean of LA&PS. “These fellowships give researchers the opportunity to further pursue their academic interests with experts in the field and enhances the outstanding research being done in LA&PS.”

The fellowship program was a faculty-wide competition and linked ongoing work at LA&PS to address anti-Black racism. The projects cover a wide spectrum of disciplines.
