The Ohio State University is pleased to announce the creation of The Center for Historical Research. Devoted to the study of globalization in history, each year the Center will examine a particular theme through a series of seminars conducted by visiting faculty. The Center will offer year-long fellowships from any discipline for senior and junior faculty, as well as dissertation
The first two-year program (2007-2008, 2008-2009) will explore "Crossroads of Globalization: Geographic 'Hot Spots' in the Early Modern World."
Seminars will examine how particular locales played a critical role in globalization, and the locales' impact on the wider regions, the indigenous peoples, emigrants, and the imperial powers. Potential 'hot spots' to be examined in the first year include Potosí, the Lower Savannah River Valley, Beverwijck, Detroit, Whydah and Quebec. The second year program will focus exclusively on 'hot spots' in the Iberian empire, including Manila, Havana, Vera Cruz, Santa Fe, Lima, São Paulo and Salvador de Bahia
The Center is accepting applications for faculty and dissertation fellows, as well as seminar leaders for the first year program. For information on the program and application process, please consult our website, http://chr.osu.edu/, or the Director, Alan Gallay, at email@example.com.
Application deadline is Feb. 15, 2007.
