Short-term Research Fellowships in Cultural and Intellectual History

Short-term Research Fellowships in Cultural and Intellectual History
Warburg Institute, London
Deadlines: Friday, 29 November 2013

wblogoThe Warburg Institute is dedicated to the interdisciplinary study of the classical tradition – in the sense of those elements in European thought, art and institutions that have evolved out of the cultures of the ancient world. Its Library and Photographic Collection are designed and arranged to encourage research into the processes by which one culture learns from another and by which different fields of thought and art act on each other.

The Institute is offering a number of short-term Fellowships of two, three or four months for tenure in the academic year 2014-15:

Brian Hewson Crawford Fellowship
A two-month Fellowship is available for the study of any aspect of the classical tradition. Under the terms of the deed, the Fellowship is open to European scholars other than of British nationality.

Alan Deyermond Fellowship
A two month Fellowship is available to undertake research on a project related to Spanish or Portugese literature, culture or visual arts before 1600 (with a preference for the Medieval period).

Henri Frankfort Fellowship
This two-month fellowship may be held in any of the areas in which Professor Frankfort made his distinguished contributions to scholarship: the intellectual and cultural history of the ancient Near East, with particular reference to society, art, architecture, religion, philosophy and science; the relations between the cultures of Mesopotamia, Egypt and the Aegean, and their influence on later civilizations.

Albin Salton Fellowship
This two-month fellowship is intended to promote the understanding of those elements of cultural and intellectual history which led to the formation of a new world-view, understood in the broadest cultural, political and socio-economic terms, as Europe began to develop contacts with the world outside Europe, and that world came into contact with Europe.

Grete Sondheimer Fellowship
The two month Fellowship, may be held in any of the areas of interest of the Institute.

Frances A. Yates Fellowships
These fellowships interests may focus on any aspect of cultural and intellectual history but, other things being equal, preference will be given to those whose work is concerned with those areas of the medieval and Renaissance encyclopedia of knowledge to which Dame Frances herself made such distinguished contributions. A number of two-, three- and four-month Fellowships are available. Candidates domiciled in the U.K. may apply for three- or four-month Fellowships only.

Brill Fellowships at CHASE
The publishing house Brill (Leiden) is sponsoring up to two annual research Fellowships at the Warburg Institute’s Centre for the History of Arabic Studies in Europe (CHASE). Postdoctoral researchers may apply for a two, three or four month Fellowship for research projects on any aspect of the relations between Europe and the Arab World from the Middle Ages to the 19th century.

Further details on eligibility and application for all fellowships can be
found at the Warburg’s website.

Applications must be emailed to the Institute by no later than  Friday, 29 November 2013.
