CSLG Visiting Fellows Program (2003-2010) 

A Ford Foundation Grant supported the CSLG Visiting Fellows Program for seven years from 2003 to 2010. Our fellows spent a period of six months to a year, pursuing research in the broad areas of the Centre's concerns. The Centre provided Visiting Fellows with a maintenance allowance, office facilities, and a research grant. Our fellows, with some of whom we have the pleasure of sustaining earlier conversations, livened up life at CSLG. We are grateful to all of our fellows for their involvement in the life of the Centre, even after the completion of their Fellowships.
