ANTH 214 - Scholarly Development

Semester Offered: Fall
0.5 unit(s)
For students considering a scholarly or research future, this Intensive opens a window onto activities of scholarship including proposal writing, workshopping , scholarly communication and sharing research findings, peer review, and critique. This is a supportive group for sophomores, juniors and seniors in Anthropology and related departments and programs to write grant, fellowship applications (for example, Cornelison, Fulbright, Luce, Marshall, Watson) and graduate school applications (for MA and PhD programs) and/or to submit proposals and craft posters and papers for participation in scholarly conferences (for example, American Anthropological Association or New York Conference on Asian Studies). Classes alternate between “Works and Lives” discussions of the nature and goals of scholarship and the potential for Academia to contribute to social change, and “Practical Sessions” providing supported time for each student to work on the applications of their choice. Participants become familiar with a range of summer and post-graduate fellowships, conference opportunities and graduate programs and read examples of successful proposals. Panels of Vassar alums share insights about their fellowship and graduate applications. Faculty and administrators with experience as grant and fellowship reviewers provide group and individualized consultation. Martha Kaplan.
