Fellowship: I Tatti/DHI Rom Joint Fellowship for African Studies (2021-2022), deadline 16 November 2020

I Tatti – The Harvard University Center for Italian Renaissance Studies and the German Historical Institute in Rome (Deutsches Historisches Institut in Rom) offer a joint residential fellowship for the 2021-2022 academic year. The fellowship offers post-doctoral scholars working on African studies (or topics that closely consider Africa) a ten-month position to conduct historical research in Italy supported by two institutes with dynamic academic communities. Fellows will spend five months (September 1, 2021 – January 30, 2022) in Rome at the DHI and five months (February 1 – June 30, 2022) in Florence at I Tatti.

The fellowship is designed for scholars in fields related to the study of African history c. 1250-1750, including art history, the history of expressive cultures, musicology, economic history, intellectual, political, and religious history, as well as literature and languages. Preference will be given to advanced research projects that address the relationship between the African continent and the Mediterranean world during the early modern period, broadly understood historically to include the period from the 14th through the 17th centuries.

We welcome applications from scholars of all nationalities. Special consideration will be given to scholars from the African continent.

Applications must be written in English and must be submitted electronically by midnight (Cambridge, MA time) on November 16, 2020.
