Cornell University College of Human Ecology History Fellowship
New York
March 2, 2009 Deadline

The College of Human Ecology, Cornell University, is accepting applications for the 2009 Dean’s Fellowship in the History of Home Economics and Human Nutrition. We invite faculty members, research scholars, and advanced graduate students with demonstrated background and experience in historical studies to apply. One award of $6,000 is available for a summer or sabbatical residency of six continuous weeks to use the unique resources available from the College and the Cornell University Library System in pursuit of scholarly research in the history of home economics and its impact on American society. Relevant historical subject areas include: history of food, nutrition, housing, the family, child development, and clothing and textiles, among other key topics in American social history.

At the conclusion of the residency the fellowship recipient is asked to provide a brief final report to the dean, including a bibliography of research pursued, and preservation recommendations for pertinent library and archival holdings. A seminar or public lecture on the fellowship research is requested. Research projects should be intended for publication. Full application information for the post-graduate fellowship is available on this site.
