Fellowship:
I Tatti – RCAC Joint Fellowship
Florence and Istanbul 2015
Deadline: 15 January 2015

Villa I Tatti – The Harvard University Center for Italian Renaissance Studies (VIT, in Florence) and the Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations of Koç University (RCAC, in Istanbul) offer a joint, one-year fellowship. Scholars will spend the Fall semester at one center, and the Spring semester at the other. Here they will carry out projects that represent advanced research in any aspect of the interaction between Italy and the Byzantine or the Ottoman Empire (ca. 1300 to ca. 1700). Subjects covered include art, architecture, archaeology, history, literature, material culture, music, philosophy, religion, and science.

Applications will be available mid-September; the deadline for submission is 15 January 2015.

suleimanThe “I Tatti – RCAC Joint Fellowship” will be awarded at one of two levels: one junior fellowship, for advanced doctoral candidates who are writing their PhD dissertation; or one senior fellowship, for candidates who have received a PhD within a decade of the year of application. (For senior fellowships, PhD certificates must bear a date between January 1, 2004 and December 31, 2013, inclusive.) Candidates must be conversant in English and have at least a reading knowledge of Italian. They must have a solid background in Italian Renaissance and Byzantine or Ottoman Studies. Fellows may not take on any other obligations such as teaching positions, even part-time ones, during any part of their Fellowship term. Each successful candidate must be approved by both RCAC and VIT. Priority will be given to applicants with no previous association with VIT or RCAC.  Renewals, repeats, or deferments of this Fellowship are not granted. The Fellowship period will be one academic year, which will be spent as one term at VIT and one term at RCAC. The dates of the fall and spring semesters differ at the two institutions (see below), and successful candidates can express a preference for spending the Fall semester in Florence or Istanbul. During both semesters, it must be possible for Fellows to carry out most of their research with the resources available in the city where they are resident.

Details relating to I Tatti:

  •  The dates of the Fall semester are July 1 – December 31 (Fellows required to begin work by September 1), and the dates of the Spring semester are February 1 – June 30.
  • Fellows are expected to spend at least three days a week at the Villa and are required to live in Florence or the surrounding area, but are welcome to take occasional research trips to other cities.
  • Fellows are offered a reserved carrel in the Biblioteca Berenson, or, when available, a study, lunch on weekdays (not extended to spouses), and various other privileges.
  • The stipend is USD 4,000 per month for senior Fellows, and USD 3000 for junior Fellows, plus a one-time supplement (maximum, USD 1,500) towards relocation expenses. When possible, a one-bedroom apartment will be set aside for the Fellow’s use, rent free, but with charges for utilities. If an apartment is not available, USD 1000 per month will be offered to help offset rental costs.
  • The Fellow is responsible for obtaining a visa, permesso di soggiorno, and health coverage (and, if appropriate, for accompanying family members).  The Fellow must determine if a visa is required and, if necessary, obtain one before travel.
  • Scholars awarded this Fellowship can apply for other I Tatti fellowships only after a year has passed from the end of their sojourn.

Details relating to the Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations:

  • The dates of the fall semester are September 15 – January 31, and the dates of the spring semester are February 1 – June 15.
  • Fellows are offered accommodation at the RCAC, with single rooms for fellows unless accompanied by spouse/partner for the period of the fellowship, in which case one of a limited number of larger two or three room suites will be assigned to the grantee; however children are not allowed to reside at the RCAC.
  • Fellows are offered a carrel in the study room, use of the RCAC and NIT Libraries, dinner 5 nights a week (Sunday – Thursday, accompanying spouse/partner may also join) except on university and national holidays.
  • The RCAC fellowship committee is composed of 4 KU faculty members from the Departments of History and of Archaeology and Art History.
  • Both categories of fellowship carry with them the cost of one round-trip ticket to Turkey and up to 1000 USD for travel of spouse accompanying the fellow during the period of his or her research.
  • Monthly stipend for the junior fellowship is the Turkish lira equivalent of USD 800 net per month with the Turkish lira equivalent of a USD 400 research budget. The senior fellowship carries with it a stipend of the Turkish lira equivalent of USD 1100 – 1500 net per month (the exact amount of the stipend will be decided by the Admissions Committee) with the Turkish lira equivalent of a USD 400 research budget.
  • The fellow will be a full part of the RCAC’s community of fellows and be able to take part in its active program of study trips, symposia and conferences.
  • A health insurance package will be offered; if the health insurance package offered by the RCAC is not acceptable to the fellow selected, then he or she will be granted a lump sum equivalent to the cost of the insurance package, to be applied to the continuation of his or her own preexistent policy.
  • KU will secure a Turkish residence permit allowing the fellow to reside legally at the RCAC. However, securing any additional research permits for work in museums, libraries, archives, and/or archeological sites in Turkey is the responsibility of the fellow.
