RCUCH Flaherty Visiting Fellowship in Urban Cultural History
University of Massachusetts Boston, Spring 2012

Applications due by 1 September 2011

The Research Center for Urban Cultural History at the University of Massachusetts Boston is offering a 3-4 week short-term visiting fellowship for Spring 2012. The RCUCH Flaherty Visiting Fellow will pursue a research project pertaining to urban cultural history; the project must be interdisciplinary, and be focused on the cultural history of cities, urban life, urban networks, urban materials or urban experience. We define urban cultural history broadly; projects treating pre-urban sites as well as contemporary situations fall within the fellowship’s parameters. The sole condition of the fellowship is that during the fellowship period the Fellow offer a seminar talk for the RCUCH Faculty Seminar group on work-in-progress related to the research project. The RCUCH invites applications, giving preference to scholars at associate professor rank or above. (more…)
