Application deadline: Oct 25, 2017

ACLS invites applications for Getty/ACLS Postdoctoral Fellowships in the History of Art, made possible by the generous support of the Getty Foundation. These fellowships are intended to support an academic year of research and/or writing by early career scholars for a project that will make a substantial and original contribution to the understanding of art and its history. ACLS will award 10 fellowships, each with a stipend of $60,000 plus $5,000 for research and travel during the award period, and a one-week residence at the Getty Center following the fellowship. The ultimate goal of the project should be a major piece of scholarly work by the applicant. Continue reading “STIP: Getty ACLS postdoctoral fellowships”

Apply Now: 5 Scholarships, ZEGK Heidelberg

The interdisciplinary doctoral research group “Art, Culture and Markets –History of European Culture from the 18th Century to the Present” of the Center for European History and Cultural Studies (ZEGK) at the University of Heidelberg is funded by the Landesgraduiertenförderung and delighted to grant five scholarships starting from October 2017 that may be held for up to three years. Consisting of a monthly stipend of 1.000€, the scholarships additionally encompass a lump sum payment of 110€ per month for material and travel expenses and, if necessary, a family allowance (all payments are in accordance with the Landesgraduiertenförderungsgesetz of 23rd July 2008).

The doctoral research group will examine the interweavings of culture and economy in Europe in a diachronic perspective via referring to the examples of markets for art, music, and religion. It will be supported by the professorships for Economic and Social History, Public History, History of the Early Modern Period, Early Modern and Contemporary Art History, Musicology, and for Religious Studies. The group’s interdisciplinary shaped projects will be supervised by two professors of the respective disciplines and will discuss three central research questions:

  • How are ideas and concepts of the relationship of culture and market shaped?
  • Which historical manifestation of cultural industry might be detected?
  • Are there reciprocal impacts between economic practices and artistic-cultural production discernible, and if so, how are these intertwinings carved out?

An accompanying study program will support the scientific qualification of the scholarship holders and help them to get their bearings at the beginning of their academic careers. The development and implementation of the projects will crop up in an interdisciplinary environment.

In addition to the usual application documents in English or German, a proof of an above-average final degree (M.A. or equivalents) in one of the subjects engaged, a short proposal of the interdisciplinary PhD-Project (max. 5.000 characters without spaces) and certificated language skills in all required languages as well as in English are expected. The elected scholars will necessarily have to live on-site in order to participate in the study program.

The applications shall be submitted online via a joint PDF-file to the spokepersons of the doctoral research group Prof. Dr. Katja Patzel-Mattern and Prof. Dr. Cord Arendes, att. Mr. Nils Steffen (email: nils.steffen@zegk.uni-heidelberg.de).

The application deadline is 10th August 2017. Subsequently, interviews will take place at the end of August, probably at 24th August.

In areas where women are underrepresented, the University of Heidelberg is striving to increase the proportion of women and therefore strongly encourages qualified women to participate in the application process. Disabled persons with corresponding aptitude for the positions will be favoured.

CFP: Young Scholars Forum for Collection and Object Research (Göttingen 28-30 Sept, 17)

‘Telescope, Microscope, perception and insight’: Instruments of Visualization in Scientific Practice – an interdisciplinary workshop for young scientists and scholars
Venue: Historische Sternwarte Göttingen
A workshop of the Zentrale Kustodie der Universität Göttingen
28.-30. September 2017
Application deadline 1 July, 2017
Working with scientific instruments appears to be uncomplicated at first glance. Microscopes reveal what one can not grasp with the naked eye. Remote objects appear very close with appropriate instruments. X-rays or MRI scanners bring transparency to solid objects and reveal internal structures and connections.
The use of different scientific equipment and models is, however, by no means trivial nor self-evident. In addition to a specific language, which must first be learned and deciphered, technical images and models are embedded in disciplinary image conventions, image traditions and (local) standards. Apparatus, instruments, and the visualizations they produce are thus far more than mere neutral, which transform the natural world into a neutral visual language.
The ‘Junges Forum für Sammlungs- und Objektforschung’ invites applications for 20mins presentations.
