IUB Faculty Fellowships for 2013-14
"The Global Legacy of World War I"
World War I launched the template of the twentieth century. Seldom discussed today, and pushed from public view by the catastrophic events of the 1940s, "The Great War" completely remade the politics and culture of its time. It presented humanity with the spectacle of mass slaughter and upset the political order of the entire globe. National borders were redrawn in Europe and the Middle East; international relations were profoundly remodeled by the League of Nations. Nationalist challenges to colonial rule emerged in Asia and Africa. Arguments over the use of colonial armies and women in war foregrounded controversies over racialized and gendered conceptions of citizenship. In defeated nations fascist leaders won support to go to war again. Writers and filmmakers eagerly took up the global project to reimagine human suffering and the costs of war itself.
To promote the study of World War I and its impact on the occasion of the centennial of the Great War, the CSHM and the School of Global and International Studies will fund two faculty research fellowships during the 2013-14 academic year. Each fellow selected will receive a deposit of $2000 to their research accounts. Proposals should consist of a three-page description of the research project and a brief (one-page) faculty C.V.
SELECTED FELLOWS WILL BE EXPECTED TO DELIVER A PAPER ON ASPECTS OF THEIR FUNDED RESEARCH TO THE BLOOMINGTON CAMPUS DURING THE SPRING 2014 SEMESTER.
ALL PROPOSALS MUST BE RECEIVED BY APRIL 1, 2013. Please submit proposals electronically to Dr. Barbara Truesdell, Center for the Study of History and Memory, at her Outlook Exchange account "barbara" at indiana.edu. For more information, please contact Dr. Truesdell.
