The Center’s mission is to encourage research on how the Cold War and the red scares shaped domestic political culture and foreign policy. We are particularly interested in proposals that deal with civil liberties, civil rights, academic freedom, political repression, and resistance. Other topics may include: gender relations, internal security, labor relations, foreign policy, and political economy. We also look forward to supporting projects that see the central issue of these years as the U.S. response to revolutionary nationalism and decolonization in Asia, Latin America, and Africa. The Center is a joint project of Faculty of Arts and Science and the Tamiment Library, a special collection at NYU documenting the history of Labor and the Left. We encourage applications from scholars whose work draws on the collections of the Tamiment Library. Dissertation fellows will receive $20,000 and post-doctoral fellows a stipend of $40,000. Summer research fellowships are offered with a $2,000 stipend. Applications should include: Copy of curriculum vitae; Short project description (five pages maximum); Statement concerning the relevance of the collections of the Tamiment Library to the project; and two recommendation letters. Dissertation applicants must be ABD at time of application and expect to complete their dissertations within 2 years.
