FELLOWSHIP OFFERED FOR RIVER BASIN STUDIES
The Center for Columbia River History announces the James B. Castles Fellowship to encourage original scholarly research that contributes to public understanding of the history of the Columbia River Basin. The $3,000 fellowship is open to graduate students, professional historians and independent scholars. CCRH encourages proposals from diverse historical perspectives, including social, ethnic, political, cultural and environmental approaches.
Fellows will be in residence at the Center for Columbia River History in Portland-Vancouver for four weeks during the granting year (June 1, 2007-August 31, 2008). They will deliver a public talk on their research topic and submit an article for possible publication in a regional journal such as the Oregon Historical Quarterly, Pacific Historical Review, Pacific Northwest Quarterly or Columbia Magazine. In addition, they will submit a written report on their research.
To apply, submit three letters of recommendation, and six copies of the following: curriculum vita and a cover letter (800 words maximum) outlining your research project and the archives you intend to use. If your recommendation letters will arrive under separate cover, be sure to tell us who they will be and to provide contact information for them. Recipients may work in any regional archive including (but not limited to) those of the Oregon Historical Society, Bonneville Power Association, the Army Corps of Engineers, the City of Portland, the Portland Art Museum, and municipal records. Send to the Center for Columbia River History, 1109 East 5th St., Vancouver WA 98661. Materials, including recommendation letters, should be received by March 1.
Applicants will be evaluated both on their research skills in using archival materials and on the ways in which their topic contributes to public understanding of the history of the Columbia River Basin. The successful candidate will be announced at the 2007 Pacific Northwest History Conference held April 19-21 in Tacoma.
