Center for the Study of the Impact of the Cold War on the United States

New York University is pleased to announce a new Center for the Study of the
Impact of the Cold War on the United States. We will be offering
dissertation and post-doctoral fellowships and a number of summer stipends
over the next five years. The Center's mission is to encourage research on
how the Cold War and the red scares shaped domestic political culture and
foreign policy. We are particularly interested in proposals that deal with
civil liberties, civil rights, academic freedom, political repression, and
resistance. Other topics may include: gender relations, internal security,
labor relations, foreign policy, and political economy. We also look forward
to supporting projects that see the central issue of these years as the U.S.
response to revolutionary nationalism and decolonization in Asia, Latin
America, and Africa.

The Center is a joint project of Faculty of Arts and Science and the
Tamiment Library, a special collection at NYU documenting the history of
Labor and the Left. We encourage applications from scholars whose work draws
on the collections of the Tamiment Library

The application deadline is March 31, 2006. In order to apply, please send
the information listed below to Dr. Marilyn Young and Dr. Michael Nash
(co-directors), Center for the Study of the Impact of the Cold War on the
United States, Tamiment Library, New York University, 70 Washington Square
South, New York, N.Y. 10012.

1. Copy of curriculum vitae.
2. Short project description (five pages maximum).
3. Statement concerning the relevance of the collections of the Tamiment
Library to the project.
4. Two letters of recommendation.
5. Writing samples are also welcome.

Applicants for dissertation fellowships must have passed their comprehensive
examinations and expect to complete their dissertations within two years.

This year we expect to offer one dissertation fellowship, one post-doctoral
fellowship, and two summer stipends. Dissertation fellows will receive
stipends of $20,000 for a nine-month academic year; stipends for
post-doctoral fellows will be $40,000; and summer fellowships are $2,000 per
month. One-semester fellowships will be offered at half of the above
stipend. Health insurance is also available. Office space will be provided
and all fellows will have a formal affiliation with New York University.

Young (Marilyn.Young at nyu.edu; 212-998-8610) or Michael Nash
(Michael.Nash at nyu.edu; 212-998-2428).
