Three Short-Term Fellowships for New Research on Local Renaissances
Deadline: 30 October 2015
Open to: scholars at a doctoral or postdoctoral level
Fellowship: EUR 2,000 per month
The Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz in cooperation
with the ERC/HistAntArtSi project is offering three research scholarships to
investigate the reception of the classical past in selected areas and regions
of Europe. The aim of the call for applications is to create an
international team formed of three scholars, either PhD candidates at the end
of their research or postdoctoral fellows, to work together for three months to
explore different notions of antiquarian culture and artistic patronage in
different areas in Europe during the early modern period. Working on the
assumption that a universal and monolithic Renaissance is increasingly seen to
be a superseded concept, the research group will be encouraged to investigate
the idea of “local Renaissances”, as well as crucial historiographical concepts
such as “antiquity”, “identity” and “style”.
Fellows will be expected to live in Florence and
to work at the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz. Each scholar will work
individually on her/his research topic, but will be expected to engage closely
and continuously in seminars and discussions with the other two selected
scholars and with the ERC HistAntArtSI research group. The group of scholars
will be expected to organize a workshop in which they will present the results
of their work at the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz and to submit a
proposal for a panel to be held in the following RSA. Scholarships will
begin in January 2016 and end in March 2016.
Potential candidates will be scholars who are already
working on a European area at a doctoral or postdoctoral level. In line
with the approach and methodology of the HistAntArtSI research project, the
selected group of scholars would work together sharing an interdisciplinary and
comparative approach and maintaining constant contact with the research team
hosted at the University of Naples Federico II. In addition to their individual
and specific research skills, each candidate should be able to demonstrate
her/his capacity to cooperate as part of a research group. Candidates should
also have a good knowledge of spoken and written Italian and English.
Each scholar will receive EUR 2,000 monthly. There are
no additional funds for travel to Florence.
How to apply?
The deadline for applicatins is 30 October 2015.
Applicants must submit a thousand-word length project proposal, together
with a curriculum vitae and a cover letter. The names of two
established scholars ready to support the application must be listed at the end
of the cover letter. Applicants are required to merge all the documents in a
single PDF (max. 2 MB) and submit it via e-mail to:firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
