FALL 2016 HISTORY FSP IN LONDON


include letters of recommendation and a research proposal for a project to be conducted while in London to be conducted while in London using local primary source resources.  All research proposals require a faculty advisor, who must agree prior to your submitting your application to advise and assess the research.  This means that advance work is required for the application.
 
If you are one of those students who intends to apply and will be off campus this coming winter, you should plan to work with the faculty before leaving and, depending on your access to libraries, may need to do preliminary research before using Dartmouth’s library resources.
 
We will be conducting interviews of all applicants during the Winter Term.  We will interview by Skype those students who will be off campus during the winter term.

The Dartmouth Vietnam Project Launched

Are you interested in learning the art of oral history interviewing?  The Dartmouth Vietnam Project (DVP), launched in summer 2014 and sponsored by the History Department, is an experiential learning program that provides a group of Dartmouth students the chance to get hands-on practice in this exciting field of historical research.

The main goal of the DVP is to produce an online archive of oral history interviews with older members of the Dartmouth community (alumni, faculty, staff, NH residents, and others) who want to share their memories and experiences of the Vietnam War and the Vietnam War era.  All of the interviews are conducted by current Dartmouth students.  The interviews are recorded and transcribed, and both the audiofiles and the transcripts are made accessible to the public via the DVP website.

International Addresses by Five Dartmouth Historians

Doug Haynes traveled in June to the University of Goetingen, where he delivered a keynote lecture for a conference devoted to “Informal and Everyday Markets—Histories of Business and Entrepreneurship in India Since the Nineteenth Century.”   In March, Haynes, who is a specialist in South Asian history, delivered a co-written plenary address at the colloquium “What is the History of the Body,” held at London’s Institute for Historical Research.  This current year, a National Endowment for the Humanities fellowship is funding Haynes research on “Advertising and the Making of the Middle Class in Western India, 1918-1940.”
