Dumbarton Oaks, affiliated with the Harvard Faculty of Arts and Sciences, is one of the few institutions in the world with a program devoted to garden and landscape studies. The Mellon Fellowships are intended to expand significantly the opportunities offered by the institution to study the history and future of urban landscapes through the lenses of democracy, race, identity, and difference. To further this work Dumbarton Oaks is offering two categories of Fellowships: Urban Landscape Fellowships and History Teaching Fellowships. For both categories we seek candidates with a demonstrated capacity for cross-disciplinary scholarship and/or teaching. For the History Teaching Fellowship, applicants must currently hold a faculty position in a university or other secondary educational institution.
