For readers of the Global History Blog working on European intellectual history, here’s a call for applications that should be of interest — a chance to attend a first-ever Summer History Institute at Dartmouth College convened by Toynbee Prize Foundation Vice-President Darrin McMahon, along with Udi Greenberg:
The theme of the 2017 Institute is European Intellectual History since the 17th century. Applicants should either be in the process of completing their dissertations or engaged in revising book manuscripts as recent PhDs (post-docs and beginning assistant professors welcome). Participants will each present a draft article or chapter of their work, and the group as a whole will attend a variety of special events (receptions, dinners, and lectures) to discuss theoretical and methodological issues in the company of senior scholars, including Professors Martin Jay (Berkeley), Samuel Moyn (Harvard), and Sophia Rosenfeld (Yale). Participation in the Institute includes travel, room, and board.
To apply, send a CV and letter of application with 1-2 paragraphs describing the project and the piece you would like to workshop by February 1, 2017 to Professors Udi Greenberg and Darrin McMahon, Dept. of History, Dartmouth College, 27 North Main Street, Hanover, NH 03755.
