Mellon Foundation to Fund a Revolutionary seminar The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has awarded a $175,000 grant to Brandeis University to organize a year-long seminar that will bring together faculty and graduate students from Brandeis and other schools in the Boston area to consider the entangled histories and enduring effects of the American (1776-1783), French (1789-1799) and Haitian (1791-1804) revolutions. The seminar was conceived and will be led by two members of the Brandeis faculty, Jane Kamensky, the Harry S. Truman Professor of American Civilization, and Susan S. Lanser, Professor of Comparative Literature, English, and Women's and Gender Studies.
Eugene C. Black Prize Internship
Each year the History Department will award up to two E.C. Black Prize Internships (up to $1,000 each) to students who have declared a major or minor in History. In addition to completing this form, applicants must submit a letter of recommendation from the faculty supervisor for the internship and a copy of the registrar's form for 92a/b. A selection committee (the department chair, the undergraduate advising head, and the internship coordinator) will determine the awards. Applications are due no later than 1 April.
