Graduate Fellowships in New Brunswick Labour History

Français ]

The New Brunswick Labour History Project is seeking applicants for graduate fellowships in the history of labour in 20th century New Brunswick. Beginning in September 2006, two M.A. fellowships valued at $15,000 per annum and one Ph.D. fellowship valued at $18,000 per annum are offered. The M.A. fellowships are tenable at either the Université de Moncton or the University of New Brunswick and the Ph.D. fellowship at the University of New Brunswick. Funding is available for up to five terms for the M.A. and up to four years for the Ph.D. To be eligible, candidates must apply to and be accepted by an appropriate graduate program at either university. Applications should include a short résumé, a relevant writing sample and a proposal of up to 1,000 words as well as the normal academic documentation required by the universities.

Proposals must fall within one or more of the principal project themes:

  1. the history of organized labour in New Brunswick;
  2. the history of work in Acadian New Brunswick;
  3. the transformation of women's work (especially the history of nursing);
  4. work in the resource industries (especially the forest sector);
  5. the working-class memory in New Brunswick history (especially cultural sites and labour landmarks).

The fellowships are supported by a Community-University Research Alliances (CURA) grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) that involves academic researchers at the two universities and 12 community-based partner organizations. Fellows will be expected to meet the requirements of their graduate program while also taking on other duties in the work of the project. For further information, contact:
