EARLY CAREER FELLOWSHIP IN PHILHELLENISM
Application deadline: Thursday, November 26, 2020
Reference letter deadline: Sunday, November 29, 2020
On the occasion of the celebration of the 200 years (1821–2021) since the Greek war of independence and as part of a series of events that the Center for Hellenic Studies (CHS) will organize to honor this important anniversary, the CHS offers one fellowship to a postdoctoral researcher based in Greece to conduct research of the highest quality on topics related to 19th-century Philhellenism.
The proposed research may be approached through any lens including, but not limited to, intellectual history, area and ethnic studies, anthropology, art, education, philosophy, political science, religious studies, sociology, and race and gender studies. Particular interest will be given to proposals centered on Philhellenism in modern political thought, the relationship between Greece and the United States, as well as Harvard, during the 19th century. Connections to the city of Nafplio or the region of the Argolid will be a plus.
The duration of the fellowship will be from January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2021, during which the fellow will be asked to conduct research on his/her topic, serve as the academic coordinator of a workshop in Nafplio (in the fall of 2021) and possibly participate in other relevant events. The fellowship includes a stipend of $15,000. Additionally, CHS will cover travel expenses (airfare, accommodations) in the case that the fellow is invited by the Center to participate in events taking place in Greece or in the US.
Researchers who have achieved a PhD (or its equivalent) are eligible to apply. Applicants must have defended their degree before July 1, 2020.
As part of the application process, applicants must submit a project proposal, curriculum vitae, a sample of published work, and the contact information for three references.
The fellowship is offered by the CHS in Washington, DC; it is supported administratively and logistically by the CHS Greece and connected with the series of events that will be organized under the aegis of the Committee of Honor "Nafplio 2021," Municipality of Nafplio.
