USC Shoah Foundation Senior Fellowship for Advanced Genocide Research
The USC Shoah Foundation Center for Advanced Genocide Research invites applications from senior scholars for its 2017-2018 Center Research Fellowship.
The fellowship provides $30,000 support and will be awarded to an outstanding senior scholar from any discipline who will advance genocide research through the use of the USC Shoah Foundation Visual History Archive and other USC resources. The fellowship also provides for a dedicated intern to assist with research-related tasks. The recipient will be required to spend one semester in residence at the USC Shoah Foundation Center for Advanced Genocide Research during the 2017- 2018 academic year.
Award decisions for this fellowship will be based on the originality of the research proposal, its potential to advance research within the field of Holocaust and genocide studies, and the distinguished achievements of the candidate. The chosen fellow will be expected to provide the Center with fresh research perspectives, to play a role in Center activities, and to give a public talk during his or her stay.
The USC Shoah Foundation Center for Advanced Genocide Research distinguishes itself from other Holocaust and genocide institutes by offering access to unique research resources and by focusing its research efforts on the interdisciplinary study of currently under-researched areas. While the Center encourages and fosters innovative scholarly research from all areas of genocide studies, it is particularly interested in the following themes: the interdisciplinary study of resistance to mass violence and genocide; interdisciplinary research on violence, emotion, and behavioral change; and digital genocide research.
