"Global Borders" Residential Fellows, Institute for Historical Studies,

The Institute for Historical Studies at UT-Austin invites applications
for residential fellows for 2008-09.  We will host four external fellows
and will aim to replace their full salaries at their home institutions.
The fellows will include junior, mid-career, and senior faculty.  The
closing date for applications for the fellowships is February 15, 2008.

Our first two year theme is "Global Borders."  Please note that we
conceive of borders very broadly in conceptual (for instance, legal,
cultural, aesthetic, gender and so on) as well as political or
geographic terms.

For full details of the fellowships and the theme as well as other
matters, see:

About the Institute

Founded in 2007, the Institute provides a dynamic and multi-faceted 
intellectual community. It fosters creative and productive conversations 
within our department, between the Department of History and other UT-Austin 
departments and centers, between our faculty and colleagues nationwide, and 
between the department and our community of alumni and neighbors. The 
Institute explores themes whose historical roots are of critical importance 
for the contemporary world as well as for the historical profession. It 
enhances and expands the Department's long tradition of and continued 
commitment to excellence in historical research through publication and 
programming. It allows our graduate students to interact with a diverse 
group of excellent scholars beyond the department.

The Institute's programming connects the university and its wider community 
in discussions of topics that are central to our discipline and that have 
broad resonance in the individual and collective histories we all share.

Housed in the Department of History's newly renovated, historic home, 
Garrison Hall, at the center of UT's campus, the Institute hosts varied 
programming, organized conceptually around two-year rotating themes, with UT 
faculty, visiting fellows, and speakers from other institutions. It welcomes 
long term visitors as resident fellows at the senior, mid-career, and junior 
levels. We invite research scholars of all historical specialties who visit 
Austin to become associates of the Institute community.
