Census Fellowship in the Reception of Antiquity
Humboldt-Universität x Bibliotheca Hertziana x Warburg Institute
Application deadline: 31 May, 2023
The Institut für Kunst- und Bildgeschichte, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, the Bibliotheca Hertziana – Max Planck Institute for Art History, and the Warburg Institute, School of Advanced Study, University of London, are pleased to announce a fellowship in Berlin, Rome, and London, offered at either the predoctoral or postdoctoral level. These fellowships grow out of the longstanding collaboration between the Humboldt, the Hertziana, and the Warburg in the research project the “Census of Antique Works of Art and Architecture Known in the Renaissance” (https://www.census.de).
The fellowships extend the traditional chronological boundaries of the Census and are intended for research and intellectual exchange on topics related to the reception of antiquity in the visual arts between c. 1350 and c. 1900. In the context of the fellowships, the topic of the reception of antiquity is also broadly conceived without geographical restriction. Proposals can optionally include a digital humanities perspective, engage with the database of the Census (https://database.census.de), or make use of the research materials of the Census project available in Berlin, Rome, and London.
The Humboldt, the Hertziana, and the Warburg co-fund a research grant of 6–9 months for students enrolled in a PhD program, or 4–6 months for candidates already in possession of the PhD. Fellows can set their own schedule and choose how to divide their time between the three institutes, but they should plan to spend at least one month in residence at each of the three institutions.
The stipend will be set at c. 1,500 EUR per month at the predoctoral level and c. 2,500 EUR per month at the postdoctoral level, plus a travel stipend. The fellowship does not provide housing.
Candidates can apply via the portal available on the Hertziana website (https://recruitment.biblhertz.it). They should upload the requested PDF documents in English, German, or Italian by 31 May, 2023, with details of their proposed dates for the fellowship during the academic year 2023/24 (July 2023–July 2024).
