DISSERTATION AND THESIS FELLOWSHIPS

The Robert L. Heilbroner Center for Capitalism Studies is pleased to invite doctoral and master’s candidates in any discipline at the New School for Social Research to apply for a fellowship to support dissertation or thesis research and writing during the 2019-2020 academic year.  During the period of their fellowship, recipients will remain in residence, participate in Center programming, and collaborate with other fellows to organize a year-end symposium where they will present a paper.  Students may apply for one semester of support ($3100) or two semesters of support ($6200).

Proposals of no more than 2 double-spaced pages should include:

  • a narrative which explains the project’s engagement with capitalism as an analytic concept and/or as an object of social, political, or historical inquiry and critique.
  • a timeline that identifies the work to be completed during the fellowship period
  • a CV (of no more than 1 page) which identifies the names and contact information of thesis or dissertation committee members and the amount of any other awards or fellowships received for the 2019-2020 academic year.

Successful applications will propose projects that aim to 1) analyze and address real-world problems and 2) generate innovative conceptual work.

Please email your proposal by March 22, 2019 to Desiree LaVecchia, Executive Assistant to the Dean, lavecchd@newschool.edu.

Questions can be addressed to Janet Roitman, Professor of Anthropology and Co-Director of the Heilbroner Center, RoitmanJ@newschool.edu.
