Dissertation Research Grants




The American Academy of Arts and Sciences has just issued their final report on language education in the nation, concluding that the United States needs to significantly increase access to language learning to remain competitive. This is the first national study on language learning in 30 years and was done at the request of the Academy by a bipartisan group of members of the US Senate and House of Representatives.

Research assistants are needed for a project on transnational jihad movements. Work will consist mostly of transcribing audio/visual materials; scanning and organizing textual materials; and, depending on RA interest, analysis of research materials. Amount of work available will depend on language competencies. Competency in the following languages is needed, in decreasing order of priority: Arabic, Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian, Italian, Urdu, Bahasa Malay, German, Turkish.
