The Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance, and Abolition at Yale University invites applications for its 2010-2011 Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. The Center seeks to promote a better understanding of all aspects of the institution of slavery from the earliest times to the present. The Center especially welcomes proposals that will utilize the special collections of the Yale University Libraries or other research collections of the New England area, and explicitly engage issues of slavery, resistance, abolition, and their legacies.
Scholars from all disciplines are encouraged to apply. The GLC offers one-month and four-month residential fellowships to support both established and younger scholars in researching projects that can be linked to the aims of the Center.

One thought on “Slavery, Resistance, and Abolition Post-Doc Fellowship”
HA HA asking for a postdoc for studying slavery. POSTDOCing is SLAVERY. American institutions like Harvard, Yale MIT and many others utilize cheap payed postdocs to do the research. And in the end the postdoc can barely survive, no retirement benefits, no chances of employment out side of academia, so they are stuck as life long postdocs.
POSTDOC is the new age SLAVERY, and America is good at that. Because of this
