Institute for Historical Studies announces visiting research fellows, 2010-11

Mon, August 2, 2010

The Institute for Historical Studies (IHS) is proud to welcome its third corps of Visiting Research Fellows.

During the 2010-11 year, the fellows will each present a paper at one of the IHS’s bi-weekly workshops as well as participate in the events and conferences sponsored by the IHS, the History Department, and the university on the whole. 

While the four fellows specialize in quite different fields of historical inquiry, their current projects all focus on issues of "Power and Place", the IHS’s overarching theme from 2010 to 2012.
