The Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance, and Abolition (GLC) seeks to promote a better understanding of all aspects of the institution of slavery from the earliest times to the present. Our focus is on the chattel slave system, its destruction, and its legacies including Africans’ resistance to enslavement, black and white abolitionist movements, and the comparative study of the ways in which chattel slavery became outlawed around the world. The GLC coordinates annual international and interdisciplinary conferences, lectures, educational outreach, publications, and other activities to bring together scholars and students from across the spectrum of slavery studies.
The GLC Postdoctoral Fellowship Program is designed to support both established and younger scholars in research projects that can be linked to the aims of the GLC. One 4-month fellowship with a stipend of $12,800 and three 1-month fellowships with a stipend of $3,200 each are available each spring and fall semester.
