  4. Applications are invited for the position of Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Environmental History of Socialism within the framework of ‘The Socialist Anthropocene in the Visual Arts’, a five-year interdisciplinary research project awarded in the ERC Consolidator Grant competition and funded through a UKRI Frontier Research grant. The Socialist Anthropocene in the Visual Arts (SAVA) sets out to radically transform current debates on the Anthropocene, addressing the major lacuna in existing accounts by establishing the Socialist Anthropocene as a novel conceptual framework that asserts the constitutive role of the twentieth century environmental histories of socialism in the formation of the new geological age. It is the first large-scale interdisciplinary research project that institutes the Socialist Anthropocene as a new field of study within the critical corpus concerned with challenging and decentring the West-centric discourses of the Anthropocene. The approach of the project is to reconstruct the histories of the Socialist Anthropocene through visual arts led interdisciplinary research, which entails analysing historical artworks and engaging with contemporary art practices that act as a catalyst to integrate the insights of multiple disciplines and as a critical agent to pose ambitious and expansive questions, challenging assumptions and engendering new cross-disciplinary paradigms to illuminate the specificities of the Socialist Anthropocene. About the role The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will carry out an individual research project into an aspect of the environmental history of socialism. They will also contribute to the reconstruction of the histories of the Socialist Anthropocene with a focus on the themes of extractivism, infrastructure and agriculture by engaging in an interdisciplinary dialogue with fellow members of the SAVA team. Based at the Postsocialist Art Centre in the Institute of Advanced Studies UCL, the successful candidate will contribute through their work on the environmental history of socialism to the research outcomes of the SAVA project. About you The Postdoctoral Fellow in the Environmental History of Socialism will have a research specialisation in Central and Eastern Europe, the Soviet Union or another global region of the socialist world. Projects based on case studies or comparative approaches to the environmental history of socialism during the great acceleration of the twentieth century are likely to be of particular relevance. The candidate will hold a PhD in Environmental History or a related discipline awarded within the last three years, although career breaks will also be taken into account. They will have a strong record of peer-reviewed publications and other equivalent research outputs. They will be expected to demonstrate an openness to interdisciplinary and artistic methodologies, as well as skills in dissemination and communication of research and a willingness to participate fully in public facing events.

  12. Arguably the Bruins’ top target left in the class of 2023 has narrowed his choices down once again. UCLA men’s basketball has been pegged as a top-four finalist for class of 2023 small forward Andrej Stojakovic, the 6-foot-7 recruit announced Wednesday. The Jesuit (CA) product named Stanford, Texas and Oregon as his other finalists, with all three programs having received official visits and the latter two universities hosting Stojakovic within the past few weeks. Duke and Virginia did not make the cut after previously being named to Stojakovic’s top six. Stojakovic told On3's Joe Tipton that he was aiming for Oct. 31 as an eventual commitment date, but that he hasn't officially locked that in just yet. Coach Mick Cronin and the Bruins have been the longtime favorites for Stojakovic’s commitment, receiving a combined four 247Sports Crystal Balls in their favor in June and July. Several Rivals recruiting experts have predicted Stojakovic to end up with UCLA in September as well. Stojakovic took an official visit to Westwood on June 14, less than a week after Cronin hired Serbia native Ivo Simovic as a new assistant coach. Stojakovic is the son of former NBA champion Peja Stojakovic – who is Serbian himself – creating a link between the younger Stojakovic, his family and the Bruins’ new international coach. UCLA assistant coach Rod Palmer, meanwhile, was a co-founder of the Compton Magic – Stojakovic's AAU team – creating a second tie between the Bruins to Carmichael, California, native. The Magic have produced a handful of UCLA basketball alumni over the past few years. Johnny Juzang, Jaylen Hands, Jaylen Clark, Jules Bernard, Dylan Andrews, Jalen Hill, Ike Anigbogu and TJ Leaf all donned Magic jerseys before playing in Westwood. Stojakovic could become the next if he were to choose the Bruins, although he wouldn't be the first in his class to do so – four-star power forward and Stojakovic's Magic teammate Devin Williams committed to UCLA in August. Stojakovic is a four-star prospect, according to 247Sports, Rivals, ESPN and On3, while the 247Sports Composite has him rated at five stars. According to the 247Sports Composite, Stojakovic is the No. 4 small forward in the country, the No. 5 recruit in California and the No. 21 overall prospect in his class. The class of 2023 marks an integral shift in scholarship distribution and roster construction for Cronin and UCLA. Veteran players Jaime Jaquez, Tyger Campbell and David Singleton are likely spending their final year in Westwood, while freshmen Amari Bailey and Adem Bona have the potential to become one-and-done players. Four-star forwards Brandon Williams and Devin Williams have committed to being a part of the Bruins’ upcoming recruiting class, which now ranks No. 21 in the country. UCLA is still waiting on decisions from five-star prospects Isaiah Collier and Ron Holland, although neither seems likely to wear blue and gold at the college level. Stojakovic therefore stands as the most likely prospect to select UCLA as his future destination among their five-star targets. However, the Serbian-Greek teenager has taken his time in deciding which program he will call home, leading to more speculation as time ticks on. https://www.si.com/college/ucla/mens-basketball/sf-andrej-stojakovic-includes-ucla-mens-basketball-in-top-4

Ovaj termin priprema prilagođen je polaganju testa u decembru 2022. godine. Ovaj termin polaganja testa je i poslednji ispit na papiru - od marta 2023. godine zameniće ga testiranje na računaru. Više informacija o terminima i testu možete pronaći na zvaničnom sajtu ispita http://www.collegeboard.org gde istovremeno prijavljujete i plaćate ispit. Tokom svake sedmice predavanja se održavaju utorkom i četvrtkom po tri sata. Priprema se obavlja onlajn ili uživo u kancelariji Centra u Beogradu. Usklađivanje termina i vrste predavanja moguće je uz prethodne najave. Tokom priprema organizuju se simulacije testa koje će naši predavači oceniti i objasniti kandidatima koje se greške moraju ispraviti kako bi se poboljšao rezultat. Kada se pripreme završe, kandidati i dalje mogu da vežbaju kod nas bez ikakvog plaćanja i da se konsultuju sa predavačima oko delova testa koji im mogu biti problematični. Priprema košta 48,000 dinara i plaća se u dve rate. Prvi deo u iznosu od 30,000 dinara se plaća na početku, a drugi deo kada istekne prvi mesec priprema. Sam test ne ulazi u cenu priprema i mora se prijaviti na sajtu http://www.collegeboard.org i platiti kreditnom ili debitnom karticom kojom se može plaćati na Internetu. Broj mesta za testove je ograničen i savetujemo svim kandidatima da se za test prijave što je pre moguće. Za sva pitanja o registraciji za test kontaktirajte Centar tokom radnog vremena. Na časovima se obrađuju jezički i matematički deo testa.
