The National History Center, an initiative of the American Historical Association, invites applications by November 1, 2006, from historians in the United States and abroad who are at the beginning of their careers and who are interested in participating in an international seminar to be held July 9–August 3, 2007, in Washington, D.C., on the history of decolonization in the 20th century, focusing in particular on the transitions from colonies to nations in Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean.
The Center is conducting the seminar in collaboration with the Library of Congress, and with the support of a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
Wm. Roger Louis, Kerr Professor and Director of British Studies at the University of Texas at Austin, will lead the seminar as resident director, along with other resident senior historians and visiting faculty.
The Center will meet—subject to limits—travel costs of the 15 scholars selected to participate, and will provide a small stipend toward living and other costs.
