The International Institute’s new Advanced Study Center is seeking applications and nominations until Sept. 1 for its first group of scholars convening this fall.

The interdisciplinary program, featuring seminars, lectures, workshops and conferences, will examine the historic and ongoing effects of the Cold War over a period of nearly half a century.

“We haven’t even begun to contemplate the effect of the Cold War on societies, cultures and economies across the world,” says David W. Cohen, director of the International Institute. “It’s over, but it’s in no way over.”

Participation in center activities is open to U-M students, faculty, visitors and staff, as well as scholars and professionals from outside the University.

Applications should include a cover letter, a 1,200-word research statement, resume, and the names and contact information of three referees familiar with the proposed project. Fellows in residence for more than four weeks are expected to teach a course or seminar.

Applications and nominations should be sent to: Advanced Study Committee, U-M International Institute, 340 Lorch Hall, 611 Tappan St., Ann Arbor, MI 48109-1220.
