What does the RCC expect from its fellows?

Fellows are expected to be in residence during their fellowship. Teaching, field work, and archival work will not be supported.

Fellows are required to attend the weekly lunchtime colloquia and to present their research. Fellows are also strongly encouraged to attend and present at the Works-in-Progress sessions and visit the Tuesday Discussions.

We ask fellows to provide a short biography and project description for the RCC website. Fellows are also required to submit a short 500-word article for Arcadia: Explorations in Environmental History

Fellows are required to acknowledge the RCC’s support of their research in any publication that results from their stay here. They are also asked to donate a copy of their research to the RCC library. Any fellows who are able to donate a published work of their own for our in-house library, which is dedicated to environmental topics, are warmly invited to do so.
