Post-Doc Fellowships: Violence and Non-Violence—Cambridge, MA

Harvard University

The Mahindra Humanities Center at Harvard University invites applications for one-year postdoctoral fellowships in connection with the Center’s Andrew W. Mellon Foundation seminar on the topic of violence and non-violence.

Following on this year’s topic of war, in 2015-16 the seminar will focus on everyday violence. We welcome applications from scholars in all fields whose work innovatively engages with the “everyday” in relation to some of the following areas and issues: domestic violence; identity-based violence; crime (including white collar crime); incarceration; ritualized violence, institutions and legal instruments of international civil society; protests; civil disobedience; the question of how violence blurs the boundaries between public and private actors and spaces.

Applications must be completed Dec. 1, 2014.
