The ICMA has initiated a new form of grant for graduate students in the early stages of their dissertation research. Three grants will be awarded this year, at $3,000 each, to enable a student to travel to Europe (including the Eastern Mediterranean) to visit the monuments or museum objects or manuscripts on which the dissertation will be based. The grant is designed to cover one month of travel. The ICMA will contact institutions and/or individuals in the area to be visited; these will help the student gain access to the relevant material and aid in other practical matters.
The grant is designed primarily for the student who has finished the preliminary exams, and is in the process of formulating a dissertation topic. Students who have already submitted a proposal, but are still very early on in the process of their research, may also apply.
All applicants must be ICMA members. (Join at http://medievalart.org/join)
Applicants must submit:
1. Outline of the thesis proposal in 800 words or less.
2. Detailed outline of exactly what the student would like to see on his/her travels, and how this relates to the proposed thesis topic.
3. Proposed budget (airfare, lodging, other travel, per diem).
4. Letter from the thesis advisor, clarifying where the student stands in his/her graduate career, and explaining the relevance of the trip to the thesis.
Upon return, the student will be required to submit a letter and financial report to the ICMA and a narrative to the student section of the Newsletter.
Applications are due by 15 April 2015. The ICMA will announce the winners of the three grants by 15 May 2015.
Please submit materials as PDF attachments to Ryan Frisinger at email@example.com.
2015 GRADUATE STUDENT ESSAY AWARD
The International Center of Medieval Art wishes to announce its annual Graduate Student Essay Award for the best essay by a student member of the ICMA. The theme or subject of the essay may be any aspect of medieval art, and can be drawn from current research. The work must be original and should not have been published elsewhere. The winner will receive a prize of $400.
Thanks to the generosity of one of our members, we are now be able to offer a second prize as well, of $200. The donor of this prize has suggested that “special consideration be given to those papers that incorporate some discussion of the interconnections among medieval science, technology, and art.” Although the prize will by no means be restricted to papers that address this theme, papers that do so will be given special attention by the selection committee.
The deadline for submission is 31 March 2015. The winners will be announced at the ICMA meeting in Kalamazoo in May.
Applicants must submit:
1. An article-length paper (maximum 30 pages, not including footnotes) following the editorial guidelines of our journal Gesta.
2. Each submission must also include a 250-word abstract written in English regardless of the language of the rest of the paper.
3. Curriculum vitae and must be current members of the ICMA for their essays to be considered.
All submissions are to be sent as PDF attachments to Ryan Frisinger, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The winning essay will be chosen by members of the ICMA Grants and Awards Committee, which is chaired by our Vice-President.
Journal of Medieval Iberian Studies: Best Article Prize (2015)
The editors of the Journal of Medieval Iberian Studies (JMIS) and Routledge are delighted to offer the first annual $500 prize for the most outstanding article published in JMIS in 2015. All articles published in JMIS in 2015 will automatically be considered for the Best Article Prize, and all submissions received during the calendar year 2014 will be considered for publication in 2015.
All submissions should be uploaded electronically through our online submission system (http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jmis). Please direct any inquiries to email@example.com.
The Journal of Medieval Iberian Studies (JMIS) is an interdisciplinary journal for innovative scholarship on the multiple languages, cultures, and historical processes of the Iberian Peninsula, and the zones with which it was in contact. We encourage submission of all innovative scholarship of interest to the community of medievalists and Iberianists. JMIS, which aims to bring theoretically informed approaches into creative contact with more empirically minded scholarship, encompasses archaeology, art and architecture, music, philosophy and religious studies, as well as history, codicology, manuscript studies and the multiple Arabic, Latin, Romance, and Hebrew linguistic and literary traditions of Iberia.
We welcome work that engages peninsular Iberia in relation to other parts of the ‘post-classical’ world; which explores links of colonization and exchange with the Maghreb, addresses Iberia’s presence in the Mediterranean, or adopts a transatlantic frame.
The prize will be awarded by a panel of judges appointed by the Editor-in-Chief of JMIS. The judges’ decision will be final, and no correspondence will be entered into.
To encourage emerging scholars who are based in the UK, ARTES (the Iberian and Latin American Visual Culture Group) awards an annual essay medal to the author of the best essay on the art, architecture or visual culture of the Hispanic world. The winner is also awarded a cash prize of £400, and the runner-up is awarded a certificate and prize of £100. Prize-winners receive a year’s free membership to ARTES, and the winning essays are considered for publication in the annual visual arts issue of the peer-reviewed Hispanic Research Journal.
ARTES welcomes submissions from researchers in a variety of circumstances, but envisages that most essays will be submitted from early career scholars, post-graduate students or undergraduates with exceptionally good end-of-degree dissertations. Please consider submitting your own work, or encourage others to do so.
See www.artes-uk.org/awards for further details.
