Scroll this

The L.R. Wilson Institute for Canadian History at McMaster University seeks applications from graduate student for a two-month fellowship that will run 1 June-31 July or 1 July-31 August 2023. Graduate students working on environmental history topics are encouraged to apply.

Any graduate students whose project deals with Canadian history will be considered, but projects dependent on local archives and libraries are particularly welcome. McMaster is archival home to the Bertrand Russell Collection, as well as numerous collections related to the First World War, Canadian publishing, and Canadian social and political organizations. It is also close to the Archives of Ontario, and other university and regional archives in southern Ontario.

Each fellow will receive $5,000, a work space at the L.R. Wilson Institute, and access to McMaster’s libraries and archival collections. Fellowship recipients are expected to be in residence in Hamilton during the two-month fellowship in order to participate in the L.R. Wilson Institute’s program of activities and engage with our students and faculty.

Corsini Fellows are expected to produce a blog post based on their research and present a paper at a Wilson Institute public event.

In order to be considered for this fellowship, please send a CV, a cover letter that includes a project description, and a letter of support from your dissertation supervisor to wilsonCH [@] Applications must arrive by 1 May 2023 and the successful recipient will be informed and an announcement made by 31 May 2023.
