Mark Claster Mamolen Dissertation Workshop
Created in memory of Mark Claster Mamolen (1946-2013), a lifelong friend of Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. and dedicated member of the Hutchins Center National Advisory Board, the Mark Claster Mamolen annual Dissertation Workshop on Afro-Latin American Studies seeks to support the best doctoral dissertations on Afro-Latin American topics anywhere in the world.
Every year, the Afro-Latin American Research Institute at the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research, will invite graduate students working on dissertations related to Afro-Latin American studies to submit a proposal to the annual Mark Claster Mamolen Dissertation Workshop on Afro-Latin American Studies. Doctoral students at universities anywhere in the world, who are at the dissertation writing stage, from any discipline, may submit an application. The only condition is that their dissertations deal with Afro-Latin American topics broadly defined, covering any time period, from colonial times to the present. Proposals can be submitted in English, Spanish, or Portuguese.
The Afro-Latin American Research Institute will cover travel expenses, lodging and living expenses for all participants. This initiative is generously funded by a bequest from Mark Claster Mamolen (1946-2013), a childhood friend of Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. and a former Advisory Board member of the Hutchins Center, the Ford Foundation, and the International Academic Program of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (IAP UAM).
