The Warburg Institute invites applications for Short-term Research Fellowships in Intellectual, Cultural and Art History for 2019/20. 10 short-term fellowships will be awarded.
The aim of these awards is to provide financial support towards living and subsistence costs in London to enable scholars to undertake a period research in intellectual, cultural or art history at the Warburg Institute. Part of the award may also be used for up to four weeks of research travel.
The Warburg Institute is one of the world’s leading centres for studying the interaction of ideas, images and society. It is dedicated to the survival and transmission of culture across time and space, with special emphasis on the afterlife of antiquity. Its open-stack Library, Photographic Collection and Archive serve as an engine for interdisciplinary research, postgraduate teaching and a prestigious events and publication programme.
The annual group of fellows benefits from and contributes to the vibrant intellectual life of the Institute. They are given a space to work, are able to offer an introduction to their work in a Tea Time Talk and are encouraged to contribute the Institute’s blog: Mnemosyne. Situated in the heart of the Bloomsbury Knowledge Quarter, the Warburg offers scholars the opportunity to engage with academics not only within the institute, but also at local universities, museum and galleries and research institutes.
