2024-2025 Fellowship Details

This year-long study will take a multidisciplinary approach to understanding identity in Eurasia. The fellowship will allow participants to take a deep dive into the complex nature of identity, how it is created and perceived, how it changes, and how it can be politicized and polarized. The monthly webinars will help contextualize historically the many aspects that contribute to identity, ranging from topics like nationality, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and race. Fellows will consider novels, poetry, art, film, and other media that both shape perspective and cultural identity as well as how identity is viewed and interpreted globally. They will also be asked to challenge their own assumptions and commonly held beliefs about identity and culture in Eurasia.

Over the 9-month fellowship, fellows will participate in 8 content webinars, hearing from scholars with expertise on the fellowship topic. Each fellow is expected to complete a final project–either curriculum development or a literature review on a question that develops during the course of the fellowship.

DEADLINE: May 15, 2024
