|The Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance, and Abolition at Yale University invites applications for its 2012-2013 Faculty and Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. The Center seeks to promote a better understanding of all aspects of the institution of slavery from the earliest times to the present. We especially welcome proposals that will utilize the special collections of the Yale University Libraries or other research collections of the New England area, and explicitly engage issues of slavery, resistance, abolition, and their legacies. Scholars from all disciplines are encouraged to apply. To support both established and younger scholars in researching projects that can be linked to the aims of the Center, the GLC offers two types of residential fellowships:|
The Gilder Lehrman Center will award several one-month fellowships between September 2012 and May 2013. Please specify your preference for residency in your application. The one-month fellowships are designed for scholars who are working on short-term projects including articles, book chapters, or other research endeavors. The one-month fellowship provides support of $3,200, plus library privileges and office space.
The Gilder Lehrman Center will award up to two four-month fellowships, one in the fall semester (from September to December 2012), and one in the spring semester (from either January to April 2013 or February to May 2013). Please specify your preference for residency in your application. The four-month fellowships are designed for scholars who are working on short-term projects including articles, book chapters, or other research endeavors. The four-month fellowship provides support of $12,800, plus health insurance (if requested), library privileges, and office space.
Applicants MUST have received the Ph.D. prior to the beginning of their appointment. Both established and younger scholars are invited to apply. Fellows will be expected to participate in the intellectual life of the GLC and the larger Yale community, and to acknowledge the support of the GLC and the MacMillan Center in publications and lectures that stem from research conducted during the fellowship term. All fellows will be expected to offer one public lecture during their tenure at Yale.
A complete online application includes a cover letter, curriculum vitae (CV), 2 letters of recommendation, and a 3- to 5-page statement regarding intended research project (research statement) submitted by Thursday, March 1, 2012. No late applications will be accepted.
