Subject: Dissertation Proposal Development Fellowship: Directors

The Faculty Advisory Committee of the Dissertation Proposal Development
Fellowship (DPDF) Program is actively recruiting senior faculty to serve
as research directors to lead small groups of graduate fellows in two
workshops (scheduled for May 17-20 and September 6-9, 2007) that frame
summer predissertation research in a series of research fields. A
research field refers to subdisciplinary and interdisciplinary domains
with common intellectual questions and styles of research. These may
come out of emergent fields, be constituted around geographic regions
not traditionally mapped by current funding structures, or emerge from
novel ways of encouraging comparative and interdisciplinary work,
including a focus on specific kinds of sources. Research fields can be
topical in focus, transnational in scope, or comparative.

With the assistance of SSRC staff, research directors will run the
spring and fall workshops. Research directors should be tenured,
experienced supervisors of thesis research. Each research director will
receive a stipend of $7,500; student fellows will receive up to $5,000.=20

There is no formal application process, but joint proposals from two
faculty consist of letters of interest - up to 5 single-spaced pages -
that describe the relevance of the research field, include a short
bibliography, the kind of graduate students who might be recruited, and
propose activities for each of the two workshops, along with authors'
CVs. Please submit letters and supporting documents electronically by
November 15th, 2006.
