Fung Global Fellows Program: The 2014-15 theme is “Global Diffusion”


The Fung Global Fellows Program at the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies is pleased to announce the inaugural cohort of six Fung Global Fellows, to join Princeton University in September for the 2013-2014 program year on “Languages and Authority” under its director Michael Gordin.

The 2014-15 Fung Global Fellows Program will focus on the theme of “Global Diffusion.”

The Program seeks applications from scholars developing new, innovative ways to study global diffusion processes.  The objects of diffusion could be specific modes of social categorization (such as “race” in census forms), principles of legitimation (such as democracy), government policies (such as minority quota systems, forms of conflict (such as revolutions), or cultural practices (such as Tango dancing or marrying “in white”).  We especially encourage analytically oriented approaches that identify recurring patterns and mechanisms through rigorous comparison of multiple cases or quantitative analysis, with broad geographic (preferably trans-continental) coverage.  Researchers working on all historical periods of the modern age, all regions of the world and of all disciplinary backgrounds in the social sciences and humanities are encouraged to apply.

The director for the 2014-15 program year will be Andreas Wimmer, Hughes-Rogers Professor of Sociology.
