Title VIII Dissertation Development Workshops

Scholarship Description

The Eurasia Program of the Social Science Research Council is currently accepting applications for its upcoming Dissertation Development Workshop, Violence in Eurasia: Historical and Contemporary Approaches. The Eurasia Program Dissertation Development Workshops bring together 10-12 doctoral students and 5-6 faculty participants for two to three days of intensive critical discussion of the students dissertation projects, as well as larger theoretical and methodological issues. Graduate students in the social sciences and related humanities, at any stage in their dissertation projects, are eligible to apply. These workshops serve as a valuable and effective way to strengthen expertise on Eurasia (especially its underrepresented topics and regions) and help shape the field by promoting a sense of community among, and fostering intellectual exchanges between, students and scholars at different levels and from different disciplines. In addition, these workshops provide guidance and support for students working on less represented topics and areas and hence help to make the field more balanced and responsive to current developments in the region. Because the students and faculty are from a variety of social science and humanities disciplines, students receive training in how to communicate their research most effectively. This multidisciplinary allows for refreshing insights into their topics and encourages a wider discussion of the region as a whole. Funding for this program is provided by the US Department of State under the Program for Research and Training on Eastern Europe and the Independent States of the Former Soviet Union (Title VIII).
