Harvard University Warren Postdoctoral Fellowship in History

Deadline: December 15

Length: 1 year

Comments: 2016-17 topic is “Imagining History, Doing Politics: The Uses and Disadvantages of the Past.” “We seek scholars investigating how diverse invocations and imaginings of the historical past have provided the foundation for political thought and action in an array of hemispheric settings. Our aim is to explore how people recover and construct the past in order to situate their struggles in the present and envision possible futures, while also considering the ethical, aesthetic, epistemological, and, above all, political questions raised by such marshalings of historical memory. Scholars from the humanities and social sciences working on all periods of history in the Americas are invited to apply.”
