Research Fellowships "Health, Disease, and Environment in World History."

The Center for Historical Research, The Ohio State University for 2011-2012

The Center for Historical Research brings together faculty, students, and the general public to examine the historical foundation and development of critical issues of global importance. The Center offers resident fellowships for senior and junior faculty, as well as those completing dissertations. We also invite members of the academic community and independent scholars to make presentations at our seminars.

In the academic years, 2011-2013, we will be studying "Health, Disease, and Environment in World History." All human groups have modified their environments and battled endemic and epidemic diseases. Societies have collapsed due to environmental degradation or pandemics. We will examine many of the key issues and events in the interaction of peoples with their planet from the Ancient World to the present.

In the first year of this two-year program (2011-2012), we will explore demographic transitions and epidemiology in history. (2012-2013 will focus on the dialectic between environment and disease, and the relationship of race, poverty, and inequality to disease.) We are open to scholars from any discipline, and we are interested in exploring these issues on global, regional, and local levels.

Application information for fellowships can be found on our website,, and are due by March 15, 2011.

Those interested in making presentations at the seminars should contact the CHR director, Alan Gallay, at
