      The Social Science Research Council is pleased to announce the availability
      of new summer fellowships for innovative research on information technology
      (IT), international cooperation and global security.  PhD students and
      faculty from any academic discipline and of any nationality may apply. These
      in-residence fellowships, for summer 2001, are designed for researchers who
      currently work on cooperation and security issues and who want to explore
      the role and impact of IT in this area; or for researchers who work on IT
      and want to explore its relationship to cooperation and security.  
      International cooperation and global security involve a wide range of issues
      including new forms of global regulation and surveillance; transboundary
      advocacy and global civil society; economic and political "crisis" and
      transformation; unequal access to goods and services; transnational identity
      politics; conflict and transboundary intervention; military and warfare
      practices; and power and authority in the global realm. IT issues could
      involve the Internet and related technologies such as those associated with
      telecommunications, data processing, encryption, and systems of code;
      robotics, automation, and simulation; and concerns bearing directly on
      connectivity and content such as structures of information flow and
      processes of disinformation and dissemination. 
      Deadline: January 12, 2001 (mailed from inside U.S.) and January 22 (all
