Parkes Institute Visiting Fellowship in Textual and non-textual Jewish heritage
The Parkes Institute for the Study of Jewish/non-Jewish Relations at the University of Southampton is delighted to once again invite applications for two visiting fellows to take up temporary positions at the Parkes Institute.
This year’s theme is ‘Textual and non-textual Jewish heritage’, which can be interpreted broadly and include relations with other groups. We welcome applications from scholars at any stage of their career, working on topics related to Jewish history, culture and heritage, from antiquity to the present, including the digital age. Special consideration will be given to applications that demonstrate engagement with the Parkes Library and Jewish archives at the University of Southampton. To conform to the wishes of one our donors, one of the fellowships will be granted to a scholar working on research with connections to one or more of the following topics: East European Jewish history and culture; Jewish migration; and Jewish economic history. Scholars should have completed their PhD and be affiliated to a non-UK institution.
The fellowships are for at least one month and up to two months, and will provide up to £2,500 to cover travel, accommodation and living expenses. The fellowships are offered for the second semester and should be taken up either before or after our Easter break [25 March-25 April 2022] with as much overlap as possible between the two fellows, either from 31 January to 25 March or from 25 April to early in June. Please indicate your availability in your application.
