Continuing our notices of graduate fellowships, here’s a post on 2014 Graduate Student Fellows in Democracy & Markets at the Tobin Project. As the Project's website explains, “The Tobin Project awards fellowships annually to graduate students across disciplines and institutions whose research addresses the relationship between democracy and markets. In monthly forums throughout the academic year, the students present and discuss their work with one another for uniquely interdisciplinary feedback.” The fellows include three historians, all studying at Yale:
Mara Caden, Making Money: Labor, Coinage, and the Geography of Currency in Britain and its Empire, 1690-1740
Zane Curtis-Olsen, Reclaiming the "City of Homes": Squatting and Housing Protest in Philadelphia, 1964-1996
Samuel Milner, Guideposts to Where? The Industrial Response to the Johnson Administration's Price and Wage Policies
No historians were among Tobin’s 2014 Graduate Student Fellows in National Security.
