The University of the South invites applications for a two-year residential postdoctoral fellowship in Historical Archaeology with a focus on the study of the U.S. South to start in August 2019. The position will be affiliated with a newly instituted Southern Studies program, funded by a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
