BU History PhD Andrew Bell Receives Marie Curie Skłodowska Action

BU History Ph.D. Andrew W. Bell (GRS ’20), currently an affiliated faculty member at Emerson College’s Marlboro Institute for Liberal Arts and Interdisciplinary Studies, is the recipient of a 2021 Marie Curie Skłodowska Actions postdoctoral research fellowship. For the next two years, the Centre d’histoire de Sciences Po in Paris will host Bell as he conducts research on his first post-dissertation research project, tentatively titled “Sowing the Seeds of American Influence: Reconstruction and Reforestation in Europe after World War I.”

Founded in 1996, the Marie Curie Skłodowska Actions provides generous funding packages for early career researchers across the academic disciplines. This year, the MSCA announced that it will fund 1,630 researchers out of a pool of more than 11,500 applicants from the most recent cycle.
