Applications are especially welcome in the areas of:

  • Revolutions in Print

  • as well as those that have the potential to result in high-profile publications

The deadline for applications for Call 3 is 27 February 2015.

Applications for a Visiting Fellowship should include:

  • a research proposal, which includes vision and methodology
  • an outline of the sources to be researched and consulted during the project
  • a curriculum vitae
  • a list of relevant publications
  • two academic references, who will be contacted should your application be shortlisted

Fellowships can be taken up at a mutually agreed time within 2015. Consideration will be given to exceptional candidates undertaking their fellowship at a future time.

The allocation of a grant will take place after the assessment of an application form by the Steering Group of the Institute, which is advised by curators and experts from the relevant academic schools.
