Warburg Institute Funded Research Fellowships for 2019-20

logoThe Warburg Institute is offering Long-term Research Fellowships in Intellectual, Cultural and Art History (of nine months to twelve months), for tenure during 2019-20, and Short-term Research Fellowships in Intellectual, Cultural and Art History (of two, three or four months), for tenure in 2019-20.

The Warburg Institute writes:

We are offering three Frances A. Yates long-term fellowships and one Erasmus long-term fellowship for the 2019-20 academic year for either nine or twelve month periods. 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.  Awards are open to both early-career and experienced researchers.

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, deliver a paper in the Warburg’s long-running Work-in-Progress Seminar 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.
