"The Center for Historical Research at Ohio State University brings together faculty, students, and the general public to examine the historical foundation and development of critical issues of global importance. The Center offers resident fellowships for senior and junior faculty, as well as those completing dissertations. We also invite members of the academic community and independent scholars to make presentations at our seminars.

"For the academic years 2009-2011, we are studying, "The Intersection of Diaspora, Immigration, and Gender in World History." We believe that a gendered analysis of group migrations may reveal new patterns in diaspora and immigration history, shed light on specific migrations, and bridge the historiographical gap between diaspora and immigration histories. A gendered analysis of group migrations may help us better differentiate the meaning of forced and voluntary migrations, and the processes by which people maintained, discarded, and transformed their cultures, and their
host cultures.

"For the 2010-2011 academic year we are conducting a fellowship competition and seeking presenters whose research falls in the period from the 19th century to the present. We invite scholars from all disciplines, studying any peoples and geographic area(s) relevant to our program. Application information for fellowships can be found on our website, http://chr.osu.edu/, and are due by February 1, 2010. Those interested in making presentations at the seminars should contact the CHR director, Alan Gallay, at osuchr@osu.edu.
