State Formations: Histories and Cultures of Statehood

The Ohio State University Center for Historical Research Center for Historical Research welcomes applications for the 2013-2014, the first year of a two-year program on the theme of "State Formations: Histories and Cultures of Statehood."  The deadline is February 1, 2013.
CHR Fellows are typically one-year appointments to work in the Center, affiliated with the Department of History, and housed in Dulles Hall on the OSU-Columbus campus.  Our hope is that this year of research and writing will provide the fellows time to make significant progress on a major intellectual project, usually a book.  Faculty Fellows will teach one course in the department; all fellows will engage in the on-going intellectual life of the Center and make a presentation of their research during their fellowship term.

The fellows are invited to participate in all History Department activities, including our ongoing seminars: the Early Modern Seminar, the Women's History Seminar, the Early American Seminar, the Modern U.S. Seminar, and any other seminars and conferences supported by the department. Fellows will have access to facilities of The Ohio State University, its libraries, and the normal social amenities sponsored on campus. The History Department and the College of Humanities will provide visiting fellows with office space equipped with personal computers, staff assistance, research support, copying facilities, telefax and e-mail service, and access to the internet.
More information on the fellowships and information on presenting in the program as other than a fellow are available here.
