Shelby Cullom Davis Center
Davis Center Fellows, Fall 2016
We are pleased to announce the Davis Center Fellows for Fall 2016 under the topic of Risk and Fortune.
Q&A with Jacco Dieleman, 2016-17 Davis Center Fellow
During his Davis Center fellowship, Dieleman will examine how ancient textual amulets encode notions of risk and fortune.
The Davis Center for Historical Studies is named after Shelby Cullom Davis '30, who provided a generous gift to assure the continuance of excellence in scholarship and the teaching of history at Princeton University.
Since its inception, The Davis Center's chief function has been to foster research on chosen themes through a weekly seminar, conferences, and workshops. Emphasis is placed on interdisciplinary approaches and subjects that span different geographical areas and periods. Learn more about the Center, our current theme, fellowship opportunities, and what past fellows say about their experience with the Center.
