University invite applications for a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship for a
one year period beginning July 1, 2001.  Candidates should be engaged in
research projects on narratives in South Asian film, literature, and / or
historiography.  Candidates should also conduct at least part of their
research in one of the South Asian languages other than English. Some
