2009-2010 Warren Center Fellowship Opportunities

The Warren Center will sponsor two fellowship programs in the 2009-2010 academic year: one for faculty members and one for Vanderbilt University graduate students.

The 2009-2010 Faculty Fellows Program will be co-directed by Daniel B. Cornfield, the Harvie Branscomb Distinguished Professor of Sociology, and Gary Gerstle, the James Stahlman Professor of History. Over the year, the group will examine the topic of “Immigration and the American Experience.” The Warren Center will sponsor a Visiting Fellow with expertise in the area of study in addition to selected Vanderbilt faculty members. Information regarding the internal and external application processes can be obtained from the Warren Center or from its website: www.vanderbilt.edu/rpw_center.

The Warren Center will also sponsor an interdisciplinary year-long Graduate Student Fellows Program. Vanderbilt University graduate students in the traditional humanities departments or those whose work is of a humanistic nature are invited to apply for the six dissertation-completion fellowships. The fellowship provides a stipend of $18,000 as well as a $2,000 research fund. Students are not allowed to hold any other form of employment during the term of the fellowship. Graduate Student Fellows are expected to complete and defend their dissertations before the start of the next academic year.

The Graduate Student Fellows will meet in weekly seminars at the Warren Center, giving presentations from their work to the seminar and discussing texts of common interest. The Warren Center will also arrange for a number of visiting speakers to meet with the seminar during the year to provide opportunities for discussion of issues pertinent to scholarly life, such as the art of writing, successful strategies for publication, funding opportunities, grant writing, and workshops on delivering academic presentations. The seminar will also have funds available to invite outside speakers of the participants’ choosing. Each Warren Center Graduate Student Fellow will be asked to give a public lecture in the spring term. Fellows will also be expected to be active participants in the life of the Warren Center during the year of their tenure.
