Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance, and Abolition Fellowships 2022-23

The Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance, and Abolition (GLC), part of the MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies at Yale University, invites applications for its 2022-2023 Fellowship Program. The Center seeks to promote a better understanding of all aspects of the institution of slavery from the earliest times to the present. We welcome proposals that will utilize the special collections of the Yale University Libraries or other research collections of the New England area, and explicitly engage issues of historical slavery, contemporary forced labor, resistance, abolition, and their legacies. Scholars from all disciplines, both established and younger scholars, are encouraged to apply. 

Applicants MUST have received the Ph.D. prior to the beginning of their appointment. This is a residential fellowship and fellows are expected to spend the majority of their time in residence at Yale. The residency requirement is contingent on current public health policies implemented by Yale University, the State of Connecticut, and the fellows’ home institutions. Fellows will be expected to participate in the intellectual life of the GLC and the larger Yale community, and to acknowledge the support of the GLC and the MacMillan Center in publications and lectures that stem from research conducted during the fellowship term. All fellows will be expected to offer one public presentation during their tenure at Yale and to record an audio interview for a podcast.

For academic year 2022-2023, we are offering two categories of fellowships:

  • One-semester (4 months) research fellowships; and
  • The Argiro Fellowship for the Study of Modern Slavery (a 10-month teaching and research fellowship).
