Fellows Program

The Davis Center's Fellows Program brings together scholars at early and later stages in their careers to consider a common theme spanning the social sciences and humanities. Each year, a team of faculty affiliates coordinates this theme and leads a regular interdisciplinary seminar series in which Fellows participate, with advanced graduate students and invited speakers, in addition to pursuing their own research.

Current Fellows

The 2014–2015 fellows have arrived. The 2014-2015 theme, "Mapping Cultural Space," will explore the significance of cultural space as both an object and a tool of analysis, taking as its focus Eurasia, an area of the world where political and cultural boundaries have been repeatedly reconfigured.

How to Apply

The application period for 2015–2016 fellowships runs from October 1, 2014–January 8, 2015. The theme for 2015–2016 is "Mobility, Boundaries, and the Production of Power in Eurasia," and the program will be coordinated by Professors Kelly O'Neill (History) and Timothy Colton (Government). The Fellows Program Committee is interested in applications from scholars currently working on the or equally, those working on unrelated themes, but who are interested in exploring the theme. (Note that scholars whose work does not address the selected theme are encouraged to apply for fellowships at the Davis Center, and their applications will receive full consideration.) The 2015–2016 Fellows Program Application is now available.
