The Medici Archive Project invites applications for an eleven-month fellowship (September 2021-July 2022) entirely devoted to research on fifteen- and sixteenth-century book history, with specific focus on Florence. Part of the fellowship tenure will be devoted to the creation of a catalog of incunabula and cinquecentine housed in a private collection, many of which will be featured in an upcoming international exhibition. The ideal candidate should have a PhD or equivalent in early modern Italian history; substantial research experience with original documentary material from Florentine archives and libraries; an ability to work with early modern printed texts; and fluency in English and Italian (a knowledge of other languages is desirable).
The stipend is $45,000 plus a small allowance for travel expenses. This fellowship is offered to scholars of any nationality.
