Dissertation Development Fellowships

Each spring, the Consortium for the Study of the Premodern World (CSPW) provides funding for five graduate students beginning their dissertation research to participate in the CSPW Dissertation Development Fellowship Program, a series of weekly workshop sessions led by Professor Juliette Cherbuliez. The goal of the workshop is to help doctoral students as they begin a dissertation project to think about their dissertation work in comparative, premodern, global, and interdisciplinary ways. Applications for spring 2017 Dissertation Development Fellowships are due September 26, 2016. Please email for more information.

Incoming Graduate Student Fellowships

The consortium is delighted to award three Incoming Graduate Student Fellowships for fall 2016. These fellowships support incoming students whose work engages with the research and pedagogical goals of the consortium and its Global Premodern Studies program. Congratulations to fellowship awardees Emily Briggs (Anthropology), Moinak Choudhury (English), and Fikri Çiçek (History). 

Research Workshops

The consortium funds approximately twenty research workshops each academic year. These faculty- and graduate student-led initiatives involve scholars at the University as well as partners at local, national, and international institutions. Research workshops address intellectual questions in global premodern studies; their activities range from reading groups and seminars to symposia and conferences.
