Junior fellows



The IHR’s 22 Junior Fellows are specialists in British and world history, late antique to modern. Current research projects range from music in colonial Punjab to social mobility in postcolonial Africa, cultural exchange in 13th century Spain to Fenland drainage in early modern England. Junior Fellowships enable holders to complete doctorates or undertake post-doctoral research, with fellowships available for between 6 months and 2 years.
