Fellowship: Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship in Critical Bibliography

sofcbDeadline: Nov 1, 2018

Rare Book School’s Andrew W. Mellon Society of Fellows in Critical Bibliography invites applications for its (2019–2020) fellowship cohort. The deadline is November 1, 2018.

Continuing the work of the Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship in Critical Bibliography (2012–17), this scholarly society works to advance the study of texts, images, and artifacts as material objects through capacious, interdisciplinary scholarship—and to enrich humanistic inquiry and education by identifying, mentoring, and training promising early-career scholars. Fellows will be encouraged and supported in integrating the methods of critical bibliography into their teaching and research, fostering collegial conversations about historical and emerging media across disciplines and institutions, and sharing their knowledge with broader publics. The fellowship includes tuition waivers for two Rare Book School courses, as well as funding for scholars to participate in the Society’s Annual Meeting and Orientation. Additional funds are available for fellows to organize symposia at their home institutions, and fellows will have the option of attending a bibliographical field school to visit libraries, archives, and collections in New York City.

The Society is committed to supporting diversity and to advancing the scholarship of outstanding persons of every race, gender, sexual orientation, creed, and socio-economic background, and to enhancing the diversity of the professions and academic disciplines it represents, including the professoriate, museums, libraries, archives, public humanists, digital humanities, and the humanist academic disciplines. We warmly encourage prospective applicants from a wide range of disciplines, institutions, expertise, and interest.

Position description

Scholarships and Fellowships: Two PhD Positions: Alchemy in the Making: From ancient Babylonia via Graeco-Roman Egypt into the Byzantine, Syriac and Arabic traditions (1500 BCE -1000 AD), University of Bologna (Deadline 14th May 2018)

Two PhD positions (3 years each) are available at the University of Bologna (Department of Philosophy and Communication studies) within the ERC project (Consolidator Grant): “Alchemy in the Making: From ancient Babylonia via Graeco-Roman Egypt into the Byzantine, Syriac and Arabic traditions (1500 BCE -1000 AD)”, Acronym: AlchemEast.

The AlchemEast project is devoted to the study of alchemical theories and practices as they appeared and developed in distinct, albeit contiguous (both chronologically and geographically) areas: Graeco-Roman Egypt, Byzantium, and the Near East, from Ancient Babylonian Times to the early Islamic Period. Applicants are expected to propose research projects dealing with the ancient alchemical tradition.

Proposals may focus on the analysis of a specific set of primary sources — depending on the historical period on which the applicant prefers to focus on, primary sources may include alchemical writings in Akkadian, Greek, Syriac or Arabic. The proposals may also focus on a wider and cross-cutting analysis of topics connected to important issues pertaining to the ancient alchemical science and its relations with close fields, such as natural philosophy and medicine.

The doctoral research shall result either in editions and translations of ancient alchemical writings or in monographs focused on central issues of the ancient history of alchemy.

The two scholarships are part of the PhD programme: “Philosophy, Science, Cognition and Semiotics”
