Resident Postdoctoral Fellows

The Agrarian Studies Program appoints Postdoctoral Fellows annually who are in residence for the year, present a paper, and attend the colloquia. Ordinarily, the Program has four to six Fellows whose diversity reflects the breadth of the program and a Senior Fellow who has already made an important contribution to agrarian studies. We also encourage applications from knowledgeable “activists” and “public intellectuals” whose work on rural life transcends the academy. Fellows are selected competitively.
