The Global Nineteenth-Century Working Group at the Center for Ideas and Society invites applications for Graduate Student Fellows in 2019-20. The Fellowship includes participation in two events:

1) A one-day, interdisciplinary workshop, loosely organized around the sub-themes of “Architectures,” “Devotional Practices” and “Empires” in the long nineteenth century, to take place on Friday, September 27, 2019. At this event, three local and three invited faculty will share works-in-progress. Graduate fellows will read these works in advance and participate fully in the discussions, lunch, and informal conversations with the faculty.

2) At a second event, to be scheduled in Spring 2020, the graduate fellows will present their own pre-circulated works in progress.

The Fellowship stipend is $200. Applicants must be enrolled in a graduate program at UCR and should determine that receipt of the stipend will not negatively impact their current funding. Please send a c.v. and a brief (150-200 word) abstract describing the research topic you would like to present at the Spring 2020 event and confirming availability for the Sept. 27 workshop. The research topic is open to anything related to the Global 19th century; it need not conform to the September workshop categories.
