The Charles Warren Center, Harvard’s research center for North American history announces next year of its Global American Studies postdoctoral fellowship. This postdoc, distinct from the Center’s long-standing faculty fellowship, will in fall/winter 2021/22 select its next cohort of two fellows. Appointments are for one year starting July 1, 2022, renewable for a second.
We seek scholars with research interests in Global American Studies: the history of the United States in the world, and the world in the United States. Applications are welcomed from scholars with a variety of disciplinary backgrounds who bring a historical perspective to topics such as empire, migration, race, indigeneity, and ethnicity, and whose work investigates and/or interprets the history and experience in the United States of native peoples, or peoples of African, Asian, or Hispanic descent.
Along with access to Harvard’s library and other resources, the fellowship includes the requirement to teach one course per year (ideally in the fall term), to participate in a fellowship program conference each spring, and an organized faculty mentorship component. Residency at the Warren Center for the term of the appointment is therefore required. The Ph.D. must be in hand before the fellowship term begins on July 1, 2022, and the program is available for up to four years after receipt of the Ph.D. We are interested in applications in Global American Studies which relate to the nation’s life during or as a consequence of war, and/or concern the history and promotion of ideas and practices of social justice. The Warren Center especially welcomes qualified applicants who can contribute, through their research, teaching, and service, to the diversity and excellence of Harvard’s academic community. Salary for the position will be set according to the University’s lecturer rates (roughly $55,000) the postdoc includes benefits.
