Research Fellowships

The USC Shoah Foundation is offering research fellowships. The main goal of the fellowships is to have projects that advance understanding of the cultural and societal dynamics that precipitate or deter genocide, offering knowledge that has practical application and benefit.
The fellowships include:

  • Center Research Fellowship that enables the recipient to spend one semester in residence at the Center. It goes to an outstanding senior international scholar from any discipline who will advance genocide research through use of the Visual History Archive and other USC resources. The recipient will be expected to bring the Center fresh research perspectives, play a role in Center activities and deliver a public talk during his or her stay.
  • Center Postdoctoral Research Fellowship that will be awarded to an outstanding postdoctoral scholar from any discipline who will advance digital genocide research through the use of the USC Shoah Foundation Visual History Archive (VHA). The Center welcomes proposals from researchers who use innovative digital methodologies to approach the testimonies of the Visual History Archive. For this postdoctoral fellowship, the Visual History Archive itself, its interface and/or its digital testimonies can be seen as research objects.
  • Margee and Douglas Greenberg Research Fellowship that enables an advanced standing PhD candidate to spend up to a month in residence at the Center every year. The result of a generous gift from Margee and Douglas Greenberg, the fellowship is bestowed by a panel of USC researchers and professors who vet proposals for their originality and potential to make advancements in the field through the use of testimonies in the Visual History Archive.
  • Genocide Prevention Research Fellowship that enables an advanced standing PhD candidate to spend a month in residence at the Center during the Spring 2017 semester. Award decisions for this fellowship will be based on the originality of the research proposal and its potential to advance research on cultural and societal dynamics that precipitate or deter genocide, preferably with the use of testimonies from the USC Shoah Foundation Visual History Archive or other unique genocide research resources at USC.
