Since the early 1970s, the pioneering William H. Hastie Fellowship Program has played a leading role in diversifying law school faculties across the country. The Hastie program is a two-year fellowship. Participants earn an LL.M. upon completion of a thesis; they also prepare scholarly articles during their period of residence under the guidance and support of an engaged faculty advisor. During their time at the University of Wisconsin Law School, the Hastie Fellows become part of our rich intellectual community. They participate in workshops, symposia, and colloquia, presenting and responding to others’ presentations, and they become an active part of our broader community of graduate students. Almost all Fellows elect to teach or co-teach a course in an area of their interest during their second year in residence, and, with mentorship from many faculty members including but not limited to a Fellow’s faculty advisor, they prepare for a successful launch into the law teaching market.
Since the program was founded in 1973, over thirty Hastie Fellows have gone through the program and secured academic appointments. They are a distinguished presence across American legal education, and two have gone on to serve as law school deans. The Hastie Fellowship has played and continues to play a remarkable role in growing, encouraging, and developing young scholars from under-represented communities and in preparing them to succeed in the legal academic market and in the academy.
Scholars working in any religious tradition whose work explores developments in women's religious leadership are invited to apply for this semester long residency. This program will be directed by Lisa Fishbayn Joffe, director of the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute (HBI) Project on Gender, Culture, Religion and Law at Brandeis University.
Participants will meet twice monthly for luncheon seminars in which they discuss their ongoing work. Participants will: (1) present one public lecture, which may consist of a presentation to an appropriate Brandeis class; (2) present one "teach in" session for HBI staff; (3) present a lecture or participate in a round-table at a 1-day conference that will be organized during the last week of the SIR Program.
The accepted program recipient(s) will receive a monthly stipend to support her/his research. In addition, recipients will receive (shared) office space at the Women’s Studies Research Center at Brandeis University and access to all available Brandeis University resources.
SIRs may also contribute to the HBI’s Donna Sudarsky Memorial Working Paper Series, or write for the HBI blog, Fresh Ideas from HBI.
