Scholars who are no more than three years beyond receipt of the doctorate are invited to apply for the 2015-16 Hench Post-Dissertation Fellowship, a year-long residential fellowship at the American Antiquarian Society. The purpose of the post-dissertation fellowship is to provide the recipient with time and resources to extend research and/or to revise the dissertation for publication.

I am looking for scholars who have done work or are interested in gender in the history of ideas and are addressing the following types of questions:
How are ideas about American democracy, pluralism, liberalism..., gendered?
How have American social thinkers, both men and women, deployed gender language in their arguments or visions of America?
How do intellectual historians continue to ignore the issue of gender? This is beyond the recognition of women as thinkers.
How is gender as a category of analysis to be deployed in intellecutal history?
