We are thrilled to announce that two scholars will be joining the CPH in the Fall of 2016 as postdoctoral fellows:

Sarah Coleman thumbnailSarah R. Coleman is a historian of post-1945 U.S. political history with a focus on domestic policy development. Sarah received her PhD from the Department of History at Princeton University. Her book manuscript explores the shifting politics of immigration policy in the last quarter of he twentieth century. Before returning to academia, Sarah worked in the White House as a senior policy analyst focused on domestic policy and justice issues and on the United States Senate Judiciary Committee.

Renfro, Paul thumbnailPaul Renfro studies twentieth century U.S. history with thematic interests in political culture, childhood, region, and gender/sexuality. Renfro received his Ph.D. in history from the University of Iowa, where he was a Louis Pelzer Dissertation Fellow. His book manuscript, tentatively titled Stranger Danger: The Politics of Child Safety in the Age of Reagan, centers on the missing children scare of the late twentieth century.

The CPH maintains an active and competitive postdoctoral fellowship program. These two-year fellowships provide a junior scholar first and foremost with time and resources to complete their book manuscript. The position also provides an opportunity to enhance their overall scholarly profile by participating in the Collective Memory Project and in the overall life of the CPH.
