The Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain: PhD Scholarships 2018

The Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain: PhD Scholarships 2018

The Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain (SAHGB) is accepting applications for two PhD scholarships for the academic year 2018/19.

We are offering funding for:

  • 1 x full-time scholarship (3 years maximum) with the condition that the topic of study falls within British architectural history, however broadly conceived. Funded by the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation
  • 1 x full (3 years maximum) or part time (6 years maximum) student, and we particularly encourage topics that extend beyond British architectural history and investigate other global regions

These scholarships are aimed at those who have already been accepted by a UK university department with a research proposal, and who are seeking to secure funding. Our funding follows the annual rate of maintenance set as the National Minimum Doctoral Stipend by Research Councils UK. We do not offer an award for university fees.

Applications must be received by midday on 7 May 2018. Full details about how to apply are available here

CANDIDATE PROFILE

The Society welcomes applications from students with developed research proposals approaching architectural history from a range of disciplinary backgrounds including history, art history, architecture, and geography, as well as multi- or trans-disciplinary approaches. You do not need to have studied architectural history formally before, nor do you need to be a member of the Society, but your project must relate to the history of the built environment, broadly conceived. There is no limitation on methodology; we welcome diversity of approach. Possible topics might encompass:

  • Histories of design
  • Histories of construction
  • Histories of planning
  • Histories of buildings in use
  • Histories of interiors and interior design
  • Histories of practice and professionalism
  • Heritage studies

The Society encourages applications from candidates from diverse backgrounds.

Doctoral Studentship University of Warwick “Religious buildings in Zamora, 11th-13th Centuries: building processes, forms and functions” Deadline 31/03/2018

Zamora Job Advert

The construction of churches or church buildings is obviously as old as the dominance of Christianity in Western societies. The petrification of ecclesiastical wealth, however, implied a more recognisable and enduring presence for this institution throughout the medieval landscape, both urban and rural. The building of churches, and to a lesser extent monasteries, was also promoted by the laity. These were initiatives and investments that were partly religious in origin, in so far as they were ways to ensure the eternal salvation of the founders or of the community involved. The proliferation of masonry-built churches may also raise the question of other objectives of the secular world. Sometimes the laity invested in churches to provide a new, or at least a stronger, more formalised and more recognizable community identity.

Students may apply for either the 2018 SPRING/SUMMER semester or the 2018
FALL/WINTER semester.
• The Spring/Summer Fellowship, covering a period of no less than three
months, with a stipend of $8,000, must take place within the period extending from 1 April to 31 July 2018.
• The Fall/Winter Fellowship, covering a period of no less than three months, with a stipend of $8,000, must take place within the period 1 September to 23 December 2018.
Eligible candidates must either have American citizenship or be enrolled in graduate programs at universities in the United States.

Thanks to the generous gift from Joan A. McClure and Michael L. Schler, in honor of Michael’s late mother Eva Schler, the Medici Archive Project is offering three shortterm fellowships for graduate and pre-doctoral students of any nationality working on any field related to early modern Italy (preferably with a specific emphasis on Tuscany or Medici history). Special preference will be given to scholars working on any topic related to early modern Jewish women.

While undertaking research on primary sources in Florence, fellows will benefit from the supervision of the MAP Staff as well as from academics drawn from a variety of disciplines, who are experts in archival research, paleography, and digital humanities. Each fellowship will last for an uninterrupted period of three months, taking place at any point between 1 April 2018 and 31 July 2018 (SPRING/SUMMER SEMESTER) and 1 September and 23 December 2018 (FALL/WINTER SEMESTER).
