ENDOWED CHAIR IN THE STUDY OF NONVIOLENT
DIRECT ACTION AND CIVIL RESISTANCE
The University of Massachusetts Amherst invites applications and nominations for a visionary
scholar of distinction to serve as the inaugural holder of the Endowed Chair in the Study of
Nonviolent Direct Action and Civil Resistance, a new faculty position focused on the scientific study
of nonviolent direct action and civil resistance.
Nonviolent direct action refers to strategies and activities designed to achieve social and political
change without the use of violence. Examples of nonviolent direct action include collective
organizing, social movements, protests, sit-ins, vigils, consciousness raising, and other forms of civil
disobedience and nonviolent resistance. Proponents of nonviolent direct action recognize the need
for active struggle to foster social and political change and use nonviolent approaches as alternatives
to passive acceptance of oppression and inequality, or the use of violent confrontation, to achieve
social and political goals. The activities of Mohandas K. Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr. (and
others like them) provide good examples of the kinds of nonviolent direct action on which the
chairholder should focus his/her scientific work.
The chairholder will provide national/international leadership to the study of this critical topic. The
chairholder may be from any discipline, but her/his research methodology must be scientific and
focused on large-scale social phenomena.
The appointment will be at the full or associate professor level. The departmental home(s) of the
appointee will be determined based on the successful candidate’s scholarly expertise. The position
will begin as soon as a qualified candidate has been found.
