1. INTRODUCTION

The Forum for Philosophy and Public Policy at Queen's University is 
organizing a multi-year, research project on citizenship, democracy and 
minority rights in multiethnic states, under the direction of Prof. Will 
Kymlicka. As part of this project, the Forum distributes a quarterly 
newsletter updating recent developments in the field, of which this is
the thirty-eighth issue. We hope that it will be of interest to anyone
working in the field, whether in academia, public service, or
non-governmental organizations.

If you would like to be added to the mailing list for this newsletter, 
please contact us at cded@post.queensu.ca. Back-issues of the newsletter 
are posted on the Web on Will Kymlicka's home-page: 
http://www.queensu.ca/cded/news.html


2. POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP IN DEMOCRACY AND DIVERSITY

We are now inviting applications for the second year of the new 
postdoctoral fellowship program in "Democracy and Diversity" at Queen's 
University, funded in part by the Canadian Institute for Advanced 
Research.  The program will run from 2005-2008.  Each year, one 
non-renewable 12-month fellowship will be awarded, working under the 
supervision of Prof. Will Kymlicka. The 2006-7 fellowship will commence
on July 1, 2006. The fellowship is part of a larger nexus of activities
at Queen's relating to the normative and empirical study of democracy
and diversity, including the Forum for Philosophy and Public Policy; the
Research Group on Nationalism, Ethnicity and Multicultural Citizenship
(www.queensu.ca/politics/rgonemc); the Fulbright Visiting Professorship
in Nationalism, Ethnicity and Multicultural Citizenship; the Centre for
the Study of Democracy; and the Institute of Intergovernmental Relations
- all of which have active programs of workshops, conferences and
visiting scholars and speakers. The Fellow would be expected to
participate in these various activities as appropriate, including
presentation of his or her research findings, and to assist Prof.
Kymlicka in the Forum's activities. The Fellow would also be expected to
do some teaching (two half-courses).  While "Democracy and Diversity" is
to be understood expansively, and there are no pre-determined limits on
the topics it may cover, Queen's has a special expertise in issues of
ethnocultural diversity. Recent and ongoing activities have covered such
topics as immigration and citizenship, multiculturalism and
multicultural education, indigenous rights, affirmative action, historic
injustice, nationalism and secession, language rights, and transnational
democracy. Applicants who combine normative analysis with empirical case
studies are particularly welcome. Applications are due by March 1, 2006.

3. CULTURAL DIVERSITY AND CRIMINAL LAW WORKSHOP

The Forum for Philosophy and Public Policy at Queen's University, in 
cooperation with the Center for Law and Philosophy at Columbia
University, is pleased to be co-sponsoring a workshop on "Criminal Law
and Cultural Diversity" at Columbia University Law School in New York on
March 10-12, 2006. It will bring together experts in political theory
and criminal law to discuss the ways in which the courts should take
into account cultural difference when making judgements of
responsibility and punishment in a criminal law context. Participants
include Bhikhu Parekh, Matt Matravers, Michele Moody-Adams, Jeremy
Waldron, Ayelet Shachar, Kimmo Nuotio, Heike Jung, Nicola Lacey, and
Andrew von Hirsch. For further information, contact the co-organizers,

"Federalism, Quebec and Francophone Minorities in Canada" is the name of
a conference to be held at the University of Ottawa from March 9-11,
2006. The event seeks to move beyond the recent debates on federalism,
many of which have put "asymmetrical" federalism at the forefront. While
francophone minorities support federalism, many are hesitant to endorse
asymmetry. This conference will seek to answer questions such as; is
asymmetrical federalism incompatible with the recognition of the rights
of non-territorial minorities? How can these minorities position
themselves in this debate? How can the Canadian debate on federalism
benefit from international comparison, and/or be seen as a case study
for the examination of the future of non-territorial minorities? The
deadline for submissions is October 15, 2005. For information, contact:

politiques publiques, University of Ottawa, 550 Cumberland, Ottawa

9. RELATED RESEARCH PROJECTS

The Rockefeller Foundation Humanities Fellowships at the Smithsonian 
Institution Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage will host six to 
eight fellows during 2006-7 focusing on the theme "Theorizing Cultural 
Heritage". In previous years, fellows have focused on themes such as 
cultural heritage and political representation, and the economics of 
cultural heritage. This year's fellows will be humanities-oriented 
thinkers and practitioners working on issues like: the relationship 
between individual and group agency or local and national tradition, the 
relationship between institutional forms of cultural heritage and its
form and content, and how art reflects and articulates social identity.
The residency term is six weeks to five months, between September 1,
2006 and July 31, 2007. Applicants need not be U.S. citizens to apply.
The
deadline for letters of interest is January 15, 2006. For further
