The Davis Center is pleased to announce the theme for its 2012-2013 Fellows Program. The Fellows Program brings together scholars at early and later stages in their careers to consider a common theme spanning the social sciences and humanities. The program is coordinated by faculty from across Harvard University whose research interests include aspects of the selected theme. In 2012-2013, the Fellows Program will be coordinated by Professors Tim Colton (Government) and Serhii Plokhii (History).
The theme for 2012-2013 is “Imperial Legacies and International Politics in the Post-Soviet Space.” Areas to be explored under this theme include history, identity issues, security, political economy, and regime building in Russia, Ukraine, and other countries of the region. Other topics of interest include social and cultural factors such as migration, public health, religion, organized crime, environmental degradation, popular culture, and the mass media.
In addition to pursuing their own research, Fellows will participate in a bi-weekly interdisciplinary seminar series that will explore the theme. Papers will be presented by the visiting Fellows, Harvard faculty, and invited outside speakers. For more detailed information on the Fellows Program, and opportunities to apply for regional, postdoctoral, and senior fellowships, please visit the Davis Center web site, http://daviscenter.fas.harvard.edu, or consult the text below.
Note that scholars whose work does not address the annual theme may still apply for fellowships at the Davis Center; their applications will receive full consideration.
We invite you to consider applying and to forward this message to colleagues and advanced graduate students who may be interested.
