The deadline to apply for the 2018 Hoover Archives Summer Workshop on Political Economy is quickly approaching. The Hoover Library & Archives will be accepting applications until January 31, 2018.
The Workshop will be held at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, from June 25-June 29, 2018. It brings together an interdisciplinary slate of scholars who are using the collections of the Hoover Institution Library & Archives to study political economy, broadly defined. A wide range of research is suitable for this program, but participants must utilize the extensive holdings of the Hoover Library & Archives. Past participants have included historians, economists, sociologists, and political scientists. Scholars from any field who would benefit from immersion in the archives are welcome. Applicants must be holders of the PhD or scholars with a commensurate publication record, or be advanced graduate students.
This year’s keynote presentation will be given by Steve Teles, associate professor of Political Science at Johns Hopkins University and author of The Rise of the Conservative Legal Movement: The Battle for Control of the Law.
Participating scholars are expected to have an active research program and to spend each day working in the Hoover Library & Archives. They will attend a daily group lunch, two group dinners, a keynote address by a visiting scholar, and make an informal lunchtime presentation on their research.
If admitted to the workshop, scholars will be provided with a $2500 honorarium, intended to cover lodging and transportation. Alternative compensation will be arranged for international participants who do not hold a US Social Security or TIN number. Please note, international participants are subjected up to 37% tax on all payments.
Applicants are encouraged to read about the 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 workshops to learn more about the research topics and approaches that are suited to the workshop.
