The UNC Center for the Study of the American South invites applications for a one-year postdoctoral fellowship in the history, culture, or society of the American South. The award includes a salary of $50,000 and health insurance, plus a research and travel fund. The fellow will have an affiliation with UNC’s Department of American Studies. The fellowship will support outstanding junior scholars as they revise book-length manuscripts on topics related to the South.
H-NC seeks to serve North Carolina’s diverse history communities by encouraging interaction and providing an outlet for the exchange of ideas.
The Board of Trustees of The Western North Carolina Historical Association cordially invites all WNCHA members to join us in honoring Dan Pierce, UNC Asheville's NEH (National Endowment for the Humanities) Distinguished Professor in the Humanities, as our 2017 Outstanding Achievement Award Winner.
Dan will present a lecture on his recent book, Hazel Creek: The Life and Death of an Iconic Mountain Community, at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 3 at UNC Asheville's Reuter Center, home of OLLI (Osher Lifelong Learning Institute).
