The Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance, and Abolition (GLC), part of the MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies at Yale University, invites applications for its 2021-2022 Fellowship Program.

2021-2022 Gilder Lehrman Center Fellowships (Yale University)

The Center seeks to promote a better understanding of all aspects of the institution of slavery from the earliest times to the present. We especially welcome proposals that will utilize the special collections of the Yale University Libraries or other research collections of the New England area, and explicitly engage issues of slavery, resistance, abolition, and their legacies. Scholars from all disciplines are encouraged to apply.

The Gilder Lehrman Center will award 2 four-month fellowships, one in the fall semester and one in the spring semester. Please specify your preference for semester of residency in your application. The four-month fellowships are designed for scholars who are working on short-term projects including articles, book chapters, book manuscripts, or other research endeavors. Digital humanities projects are welcomed. The four-month fellowship provides support of $18,000, plus health insurance (if requested), library privileges, and office space.

Fellowship Requirements

Applicants MUST have received the Ph.D. prior to the beginning of their appointment. Both established and younger scholars are invited to apply. Typically, this is a residential fellowship and fellows are expected to spend the majority of their time in residence at Yale. The residency requirement is contingent on current public health policies implemented by Yale University, the State of Connecticut, and the fellows’ home institutions. Fellows will be expected to participate in the intellectual life of the GLC and the larger Yale community, and to acknowledge the support of the GLC and the MacMillan Center in publications and lectures that stem from research conducted during the fellowship term. All fellows will be expected to offer one public presentation during their tenure at Yale and to record an audio interview for a podcast.
