Warburg/I Tatti Joint Fellowship
Villa I Tatti – The Harvard University Center for Italian Renaissance Studies in Florence, Italy – and the Warburg Institute offer a joint, residential fellowship for the 2022-2023 academic year. Fellows will spend the autumn term (September – December) in London and the spring term (January – June) in Florence.
The fellowship is designed for early and mid-career scholars in the field of history, with preference given to advanced research projects that address the history of science and knowledge related to early modern Italy, including transnational connections between Italy and other cultures. Scholars can also apply to work on the transmission and circulation of ideas, objects, and people during the Renaissance, into and beyond the Italian peninsula, or on the historiography of the Italian Renaissance, including the rebirth of interest in the Renaissance in later periods.
Applicants must have completed their PhD by the time they apply and will be asked to upload a scan of their doctoral certificate when submitting their application. Applicants must be conversant in English and have at least a reading knowledge of Italian, with a solid background in Italian Renaissance Studies. Each successful candidate must be approved by both the Warburg Institute and Villa I Tatti and will spend the autumn term (September – December) at the Warburg Institute in London and the spring term (January-June) at Villa I Tatti in Florence. During both terms, it must be possible for Fellows to carry out most of their research with the resources available in the city where they are resident. Priority will be given to applicants with no previous association with either I Tatti or the Warburg Institute. Renewals, repeats, or deferments of this Fellowship are not granted. The fellow will be expected to carry out original research on the topic for which they have been awarded their Fellowship. Applications will not be accepted from candidates proposing to revise their doctoral dissertation for publication.
