CES Local Affiliates and their scholarship play an important role in the Center’s mission of fostering a dynamic community of Boston-area scholars interested in Europe. Local Affiliates are actively engaged in CES Study Groups, CES events and student mentoring. Local Affiliates are established scholars whose work focuses on modern Europe and who have an academic appointment at a local institution of higher education and reside permanently within 45 miles of Cambridge. Local affiliation lasts for three years, at the end of which a renewal application is required. Local affiliation does not constitute a Harvard University appointment and is not accompanied by any privileges such as office space.
How to apply
In order to be considered for local affiliation, candidates are expected to have been active at CES for one year prior to their application. The application should include the following materials:
- Current CV
- Cover letter requesting affiliation and describing your current institutional position(s)/academic appointment(s) outside of CES
- Description of current work
- Letter of recommendation
The deadline for applications is March 1, 2018.
Additional details regarding applying for local affiliation will be available on the website at the start of the new academic year. Any questions pertaining to local affiliation can be directed to Assistant to the Directors and Program Assistant, Laura Falloon.
