Dear graduate students in US economic and business history
The University of Illinois Foundation announces a call for applications for the 2018 Rovensky Fellowships in US economic and business history. Two fellowships for the amount of $9,500 that can be used in conjunction with any other fellowship will be awarded. Please, find details of the fellowship and application form in the link below. Deadline: March 9 2018. Winners are announced April 7, 2018 at the Business History Conference banquet.
The Jefferson Scholars Foundation’s National Fellowship Program supports outstanding scholars at top institutions across the country who are completing dissertations that: employ history to shed light on American politics and public policy, examine the intersection of technology and democracy, study the impact of global affairs on the United States, media and politics, and/or examine the role of the presidency in shaping American political development.
The idea of the book has come to my mind by analysing the current scenario of women in our society. On one hand many Acts and Rules are passed by the government, policies and programmes for women/ girl children’s protection and development are launched with so much propaganda, on the other hand for the diversity of culture, superstitions, social limitation and primarily for patriarchal society girls and women are not in favourable atmosphere to capture the benefits. In every step, there are innumerable limitations.
