Webinar on September 28: Proposal Writing for the Wenner-Gren Foundation: Dissertation Fieldwork and Post-PhD Research Grants
Join us on September 28 at 7AM and 7PM Eastern Time, for, “Proposal Writing for the Wenner-Gren Foundation: Dissertation Fieldwork and Post-PhD Research Grant”.
In 2021, the world still feels like a precarious place. The Covid pandemic is far from over, with vaccine apartheid and resistance and the emergence of new variants threatening populations around the world. Racial injustice, economic inequality, climate catastrophe — none of these things have gone away. These realities are reshaping anthropological practice. Whether or not you are studying these pressing issues, they form the context for your work. Join Danilyn Rutherford, President of the Wenner-Gren Foundation, for a discussion of proposal writing in these tumultuous times. She’ll describe the Foundation’s approach to supporting anthropology worldwide, offer tips on succeeding in the competition for Dissertation Fieldwork and Post-PhD Research Grants, and describe some of the Foundation’s new initiatives. There will be lots of time for questions.
