New Census x Hertziana Fellowship

25. Mai 2022

The program “Art History in a Global Context” at the Biblio­theca Hertziana – Max Planck Insti­tute for Art History and the “Census of Antique Works of Art and Archi­tec­ture Known in the Renais­sance” at the Institut für Kunst– und Bild­ge­schichte, Humboldt–Universität zu Berlin, are pleased to announce a new fellow­ship in Rome and Berlin offered at either the predoc­toral or post­doc­toral level. These fellow­ships are intended for rese­arch and intellec­tual exch­ange on topics related to the recep­tion of anti­quity in the visual arts in the Early Modern era (ca. 1350–1800).

In the context of the fellow­ships, the topic of the recep­tion of anti­quity is broadly conceived, without geogra­phical rest­ric­tion. Propo­sals can optio­nally also include a digital huma­ni­ties perspec­tive which engages with the Census data­base.

The BHMPI and the Census will co–fund a rese­arch grant at either a six–month grant for students enrolled in a PhD program or a four-month grant for candi­dates already in posses­sion of the PhD. Fellows can choose how to divide their time between Rome and Berlin, but they should plan to spend at least one week at the Hertziana and one week at the Institut für Kunst- und Bildgeschichte.

The fellow­ships are awarded in the amount of ca. 1500 EUR per month for six months at the predoc­toral level, or 2500 EUR per month for four months at the post­doc­toral level. The fellow­ship also includes a travel stipend.

Candi­dates should apply via the Hertziana website and upload the requested PDF docu­ments in English, German or Italian by June 30, 2022, with details of their proposed dates for the fellow­ship during the academic year 2022/23 (September 2022–July 2023).
