Long-Term Research Fellowships in Intellectual, Cultural and Art History
Nine- to twelve-month post-doctoral fellowships which support research on projects on any aspect of cultural, intellectual or art history supported by the resources of the Institute’s collections.
Deadline For Applications: Friday 17 December 2021
Each year the Institute offers post-doctoral long-term Yates Fellowships to support research on projects on any aspect of cultural, intellectual or art history supported by the resources of the Institute’s Library, Photographic Collection or Archive. The awards provide financial support towards living and subsistence costs in London for nine to twelve months.
Yates Fellowships are intended for scholars at any stage of their post-doctoral career. They are designed to enable scholars to carry out research in and on the Warburg’s Collections.
The annual group of fellows benefits from and contributes to the vibrant intellectual life of the Institute. Fellows are given a space to work, they are able to offer an introduction to their research in a Introductory Talk and are asked to give a Work-in-Progress Seminar paper toward the end of their period at the Institute. Fellows are encouraged to contribute the Institute’s blog: Mnemosyne.
The Warburg Institute is one of the world’s leading centres for studying the interaction of ideas, images and society. It is dedicated to the survival and transmission of culture across time and space, with special emphasis on the afterlife of antiquity. Its open-stack Library, Photographic Collection and Archive serve as an engine for interdisciplinary research, postgraduate teaching and a prestigious events and publication programme. Situated in the heart of the Bloomsbury Knowledge Quarter, the Warburg offers scholars the opportunity to engage with academics not only within the institute, but also at local universities, museum and galleries and research institutes.
