STIP: Terra Foundation academic awards, fellowships, and grants

Terra Foundation academic awards, fellowships, and grants help scholars in the field of American art realize their academic and professional goals and support the worldwide study and presentation of the historical art of the United States.

 

PUBLICATIONS

Digital Publication Initiatives

Terra Foundation for American Art Digital Publication Initiatives are innovative projects that promote the use and application of computational technology and data in the study of the visual arts of the United States and the dissemination of the resulting research.

The editors of Nineteenth-Century Art Worldwide are currently accepting proposals for articles addressing art and visual culture of the Americas in the long nineteenth century, from the American Revolution to World War I.

RESEARCH AND TEACHING

Academic Workshop & Symposium Grants

Academic program funding is available for in-person exchanges such as workshops, symposia, and colloquia that encourage international scholarship on American art topics (circa 1500–1980), as well as scholarly projects with focused theses that further research of American art in an international context.

Terra Summer Residency

The Terra Summer Residency brings together doctoral scholars of American Art and emerging artists worldwide for a nine-week residential program in the historic village of Giverny, France.  The program encourages independent work while providing seminars and mentoring by senior scholars and artists to foster reflection and debate.

Research Fellowships at the Smithsonian American Art Museum

These residential fellowships at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, in Washington, DC, support full-time independent and dissertation research by scholars from abroad researching historical American art (circa 1550–1980) or by US scholars, particularly those investigating international contexts for American art.

Research Travel Grants to the United States

These grants enable scholars outside the United States to consult resources and visit collections within the United States. The foundation accepts proposals from doctoral students, postdoctoral and senior scholars.

International Research Travel Grants for US-based Scholars

These grants offer US-based scholars working on American art and visual culture prior to 1980 the opportunity to conduct research abroad. Grant funding is available for doctoral students,  postdoctoral and senior scholars, whose projects require the study of materials outside the United States.

Terra Foundation University Teaching Programs

One of the ways we realize our global mission is by supporting visiting professorships and postdoctoral teaching fellowships at important academic institutions in Europe and elsewhere, thereby expanding opportunities for the study of historical American art. New opportunities will soon be announced.

Terra Foundation Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Paris

This residential fellowship at the Institut national d’histoire de l’art (INHA), in Paris, offers a postdoctoral scholar the opportunity to pursue his or her own work while in residence for 12 months. The Terra Foundation fellow will be able to consult local libraries and archives, including the INHA library. Additionally, the Terra Foundation fellow will benefit from a travel allowance to visit museum and archival collections in the United States and attend the College Art Association conference or another American scholarly event.

Terra Foundation Affiliated Fellowship in Rome

This fellowship at the American Academy in Rome offers support for a postdoctoral and senior scholar to conduct research on American art and visual culture prior to 1980 while in residence for 4 to 6 months. Topics dealing with Italian-American exchanges and requiring first-hand exposure to collections and archives in Rome and its vicinity will be given priority.

The awards are a one-time, unrestricted grant designed to further the recipient’s professional development.

Art Historian Deadline – October 2, 2017

Visual Artists Deadline – November 10, 2017

Fellowship award amount: $10,000 each

“I remember sitting in my graduate school studio applying for the award. I was day-dreaming about how it could help me be a self-sustaining artist and maybe start my career in teaching. A few months later I received notification of the award and I’m happy to say the grant has helped me enormously with both of my day-dreams, artistic and academic. CAA’s Professional Development-Fellowship for Visual Artists has stabilized a shaky phase of my career and life, continuing an artistic practice after graduate school. The award funds helped me to kick-start my studio space, travel for photography research, and secure teaching positions right out of graduate school. CAA’s support of developing visual artists is certainly outstanding and to an even greater extent, appreciated. I’m happy to now be a CAA member and encourage others to apply for the fellowship without hesitation.” —Daniel Krauss, 2016 Professional-Development Fellowship Recipient

For art historians, the fellowship is intended to support graduate students and scholars in art, architecture, and/or design historian, curator, or critic who are conducting research in their final year to complete their PhD. The award can help with various aspects of his/her work, whether for job-search expenses, image license fees, or other publishing costs. Applications are due October 2, 2017, 5:00 pm.

For visual artists, the fellowship is intended to support those in MFA or other terminal degree programs in visual arts. The fellowship is to assist them with various aspects of their work, as an artist, designer and/or craftsperson, whether it be for job-search expenses or purchasing materials for their studio art/design practice. Applications are due November 10, 2017, 5:00 pm.

CAA initiated its fellowship program in 1993 to help student artists and art historians bridge the gap between their graduate studies and professional careers.

CAA-GETTY INTERNATIONAL PROGRAM

The CAA-Getty International Program, generously supported by the Getty Foundation, provides funding to between fifteen and twenty art historians, museum curators, and artists who teach art history to attend CAA’s Annual Conferences. The goal of the project is to increase international participation in CAA, to diversify the association’s membership, and to foster collaborations between North American art historians, artists, and curators and their international colleagues.

Since it began in 2012, the program has brought ninety scholars to the conferences, from forty-one countries located in Central and Eastern Europe, Russia, Asia, Southeast Asia, Africa, the Caribbean, and South America. Each year, a preconference colloquium on international topics in art history inaugurates the week, kicking off four days of conference sessions, meetings with new colleagues, and visits to museums and galleries. Subsequent to these events, the program has generated many scholarly collaborations, including publications, conferences, and exhibitions. Continue reading “CAA-GETTY INTERNATIONAL PROGRAM”

CfS: Calling all members to submit proposals for a TIAMSA session at CAA, L.A. 2018

Calling members to submit session proposals
for A TIAMSA session
at the next CAA,
Los Angeles, 21-24 February 2018

TIAMSA was accepted as affiliated society of CAA on 19 February the College Art Association of America (CAA; collegeart.org). This entitles us to hold one session every year at the annual CAA conferences. We intend to make regular use of this opportunity, which will add to the profile of our association.

We welcome proposals concerning art market studies that are likely to resonate within the wider scholarly community. Please send your e-mail to office@artmarketstudies.org

Please include
– the proposed session title 
– a brief outline of the intended session topic (max. 150 words)
– how do you intend to draw prospective speakers (CfP/direct contact/other?)
– suggestions for possible speakers (if you already have some in mind)
– a brief CV (max. 150 words)
– we accept proposals submitted by more than one person (acting as co-chairs).
– we welcome proposals from experienced and younger colleagues alike.


NB:
CAA sessions are 90 minutes long only. Your proposal needs to take this into account.
Example 1: 4 speakers, each with a 15 minute-paper and 30 minutes for introduction and discussion.
Example 2: Round table discussion with fewer speakers and more discussion time.
Example 3: more speakers with shorter papers, etc.
We are open to other suggestions.

Speakers actively participating at CAA conferences as session chairs or speakers have to be CAA members (if only for the year in which they participate) and that travel grants are difficult to obtain for this event.

Proposals should be submitted no later than 19 March 2017 to office@artmarketstudies.org.
We will inform applicant(s) of the results of our decision by the end of March. TIAMSA will have to submit the chosen session theme to CAA in early April, so we are running on a tight schedule.

Successful candidate(s) will be responsible for organizing the ensuing steps (e.g. drafting a call for papers; submitting the necessary information to CAA; finding speakers and making sure they submit the necessary information to CAA; etc.).

You have to be an active TIAMSA member in order to submit your proposal.

We are much looking forward to hearing from all interested members!

With very best wishes,
Your TIAMSA Board
