The program of three-year postdoctoral Prize Fellowships in Economics, History and Politics, encourages outstanding scholarship in any field of economics, history, politics and related subjects, with a special emphasis on scholarship which crosses the frontiers between disciplines, and which addresses questions of lasting importance.

The period since 2000 has been a time of extraordinary inventiveness across the disciplinary frontiers of economics, history and politics, and of new challenges to all these disciplines. It has coincided with unprecedented change in global economic relationships. The program of Prize Fellowships, which has been made possible by a generous gift to Harvard University, is intended to transform the present moment of opportunity, and risk, into an enduring institutionalization of recent scholarly innovation.


::: The Program of Prize Fellowships in Economics, History and Politics is delighted to announce the Prize Fellows for the academic years 2016/2017 to 2018/2019. They are: Shane Bobrycki (Harvard), Paige Glotzer (Johns Hopkins), Nikhil Naik (MIT) and Melissa Teixeira (Princeton).

::: The Joint Center is delighted to congratulate Alexia Yates on the award of the Wallace K. Ferguson prize for her book Selling Paris: Property and Commercial Culture in the Fin-de-siècle Capital.

::: The Program of Prize Fellowships in Economics, History and Politics is to continue, thanks to an exceptionally generous gift from David and Carol Richards, for which we are profoundly grateful.
