Call for Applications: Spring 2021 CSPW Dissertation Workshop Fellowship

In spring 2021, the Consortium for the Study of the Premodern World (CSPW) will provide funding for five to six graduate students beginning their dissertation research to participate in the CSPW Dissertation Fellowship Program. The goal of the weekly workshop is to help doctoral students early in their dissertation projects think about their work in comparative, premodern, global, and interdisciplinary ways. This is not a credit-bearing course.
