Call for Papers: Rachel Carson Center Fellows 2016-17

Applications are open for scholars interested in the transformations in environment and society.

Know of a scholar interested in the transformations in environment and society?

Applications are now open for the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society’s 2016–17 cohort of postdoctoral and senior fellows. The fellowship program is designed to bring together scholars who are working in environmental history and related disciplines.

The center will award fellowships to scholars from a variety of countries and disciplines. Applicants’ research and writing should pertain to the central theme of the RCC – transformations in environment and society. Research at the RCC is concerned with questions of the interrelationship between environmental and social changes, and in particular the reasons—social, political, cultural, and environmental factors—for these transformations.

The RCC awards five types of fellowships:
Carson Writing Fellowships
Interdisciplinary Writing Fellowships
Outreach Fellowships
Short-term Fellowships
Alumni Fellowships

All fellows are expected to spend their fellowship in residence, to work on a major project, to attend the weekly lunchtime colloquium, and to present their project at the center. Please note that for all fellowship types, the RCC does not sponsor field trips or archival research.
