The University of Calgary’s Urban Studies Program seeks a Fulbright Canada

including faculty members from the Departments of Anthropology-Archaeology,
Geography, History, Political Science, and Sociology as well as the
Faculties of Business, Environmental Design, Medicine, and Social Work. We
seek a colleague who can contribute to the academic life of the University
of Calgary’s community of urban scholars by teaching a seminar in his or
her area of expertise, conduct research in the Social and Environmental
Implications of Smart Cities, and support the development of
interdisciplinary connections across and beyond the Faculty of Arts. For
