Global American Studies Program

GLOBAL AMERICAN STUDIES POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP.  Initiated in 2013 with the generous support of Social Sciences Dean Peter Marsden, this program is focused on the history of the United States in the world, and the world in the United States.  The postdoctoral fellowship is for two years, and two fellows are annually invited.  Thus, there are four Global American Studies Postdoctoral Fellows in residence each year.  The program is presently in a review process, even as applications for 2016-17 are invited.  Each cohort includes scholars from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds who bring a historical perspective to topics such as empire, migration, race, indigeneity, and ethnicity, and whose work investigates and/or interprets the history and experience in the United States of native peoples, or peoples of African, Asian, or Hispanic descent.

Unlike the Centers’ faculty fellowship, which does not carry health insurance, the Global American Studies postodoctoral fellowship is benefited. 

Call for applications for 2017-2018: http://academicpositions.harvard.edu/postings/6981
