This post-doctoral fellowship recognizes and fosters innovative and ground-breaking scholarship on issues related to Palestine and Palestinians. The award supports a scholar working on a book project in any field of the humanities or social sciences. The Fellow spends one academic year at Columbia University in New York, pursuing her or his research and writing, and participating in the intellectual life of the Center for Palestine Studies.
This Fellowship both deepens the scholarly understanding of the complex ways in which law and legality are implicated in Palestine, and provides a supportive environment for scholars of Palestine to conduct research. The Fellow participates in the rich interdisciplinary environment of the Center for Palestine Studies, Columbia Law School, and Columbia University more generally.
