Each year, the Medieval Institute selects an outstanding young scholar for the A.W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship in Medieval Studies. The Fellowship allows a tenure-track assistant professor to pursue research leading to the publication of a monograph. At the conclusion of the Fellow’s period of residency, a panel of senior scholars is invited to campus for a half-day public seminar discussion of the Fellow’s research. The panelists spend additional time with the fellow in one-to-one conversation and close with a reading of the draft.
After the panel discussion concludes, informal conversation will continue with the speakers and lunch will be provided for audience members.
