For nearly a quarter-century, the William P. Clements Center for Southwest Studies at Southern Methodist University has promoted research, publishing, teaching, and public programming in a variety of fields of inquiry related to Texas, the American Southwest, and the U.S.-Mexico borderlands. Central to our mission is the annual sponsorship of four postdoctoral fellows, and we are thus pleased to announce the competition for our 2021-22 cohort. Please see the descriptions below, while noting two major changes from past application cycles:
- We will now support work on California in all periods (not only to 1850)
- Our senior fellowship is now open to applicants (and no longer awarded by invitation)
