Dear Colleagues,

The Linguistics Program at the University of South Carolina solicits self-
nominations from distinguished faculty engaged in innovative pedagogy
or research who wish to visit the Program and its affiliated units to
conduct activities that enrich our Program’s intellectual environment
and enhance our graduate students’ training. The Institute for Visiting
Scholars, an initiative of the Office of the Provost to support short visits
(periods ranging from two weeks to six months) from distinguished
scholars, is dedicated to the enrichment of the intellectual and research
endeavors necessary for faculty development by introducing leading
research practices through workshops, seminars, and mentoring to
increase the capacity of faculty. Working with teams of faculty or
individual researchers and graduate students, these visiting scholars
will assist in developing innovative practices to enhance knowledge
and collaboration.

The Linguistics Program at the University of South Carolina is
interdepartmental, with strong ties to anthropology; communication
sciences and disorders; computer science and engineering; English
language and literature; languages, literatures, and cultures;
philosophy; and psychology; and also has strong ties to the office of
English Programs for Internationals. The Graduate Program in
Linguistics at USC is comprehensive in its scope and trains students to
pursue research and teach in a wide range of linguistic subdisciplines
that includes: French/German/Spanish linguistics, historical linguistics,
philosophy of language and discourse analysis, phonological theory,
psycholinguistics, second/foreign language acquisition and teaching,
sociolinguistics and linguistic anthropology, and syntactic theory. For
further information about the Linguistics Program, visit
http://www.cas.sc.edu/ling/, and for a list of faculty, visit

The application review process is ongoing, with three target dates:
Nov. 1, 2011 (with award notification January 31, 2012); Feb. 1, 2012
(with award notification April 30, 2012); and, May 1, 2012 (with award
notification June 30, 2012).

Potential candidates should contact the Linguistics Program director at
holtsc.edu with an initial expression of interest.
