Piirs Princeton Dissertation

**We are no longer accepting applications for the 2018-19 program year - the deadline for submission was November 20, 2017.**

The 2018-19 program topic is "Interdependence." Food, clothes, entertainment, and the security and health of the planet depend on what distant people do for, with, and against others. Sometimes, recognition of interdependence has led to cooperation, other times to conquest or competition, and frequently to a mixture of all three. Oftentimes, new social identities and movements, national, regional, and religious, emerge in response to rising interdependence and the convergences and inequities it has produced. The goal of the 2018-19 Fung Global Fellows cohort will be to explore the ways people learned to rely on or to reject strangers far away, as well as to imagine how global relationships came to be and could be different. We invite applications from scholars whose work addresses this topic in any historical period or world region and from any disciplinary background. **The application deadline has been extended to November 20, 2017** (11:59 p.m. EST).

Eligibility Criteria:

1. Eligible are scholars who received their Ph.D. or equivalent within 10 years of the proposed start date of the fellowship; for the 2018-19 program that is no earlier than September 1, 2008. The receipt of the Ph.D. is determined by the date on which all requirements for the degree at the applicant’s home institution, including the defense and filing of the dissertation, were fulfilled.

2. Applicants must hold a position outside the United States of America at the time of application, to which they are expected to return at the conclusion of the fellowship.

3. Fellowships will be awarded to candidates who have already demonstrated outstanding scholarly achievement and exhibit unusual intellectual promise but are still at the beginning of their careers. Criteria for the fellowship include the strength of the candidate’s research projects, the relationship of those projects to the program’s theme, the candidate’s previous scholarly work, the candidate’s ability to contribute to the intellectual life and intellectual exchange of the program, and the candidate’s work experience outside the United States. The selection committee is looking to establish a cohort of fellows whose work represents diverse analytical approaches and disciplinary backgrounds and addresses a wide variety of places.

4. All qualified applicants will receive consideration without regard to age, race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.

5. Fellows must be in residence in Princeton during the full academic year of their fellowship (September 1 - June 30), and should plan any non-research related travel during the holidays and University breaks.  This is to ensure that they will have ample time to interact with one another and contribute actively to the intellectual life of the program.  Fellows are also expected to attend the seminars, workshops and other events organized by the program, as well as present their ongoing projects in the seminars.  Fellows will have access to Firestone Library and will be able to engage in a wide range of events and activities across campus.
