Yale University-Senior Fellowships 2022

DESCRIPTION

Applications are open for the Paul Mellon Centre Senior Fellowship 2022/2023. The Senior Fellowships are offered annually to academics, established scholars or senior museum professionals in the field of British art and architectural history either to complete a manuscript or book for publication or to undertake a sustained period of research towards a major project.

They are designed to release Fellows from teaching and/or other employment responsibilities and provide them with a defined period to devote to writing or research.

ELIGIBILITY

Our funding programme supports scholarship, academic research and the dissemination of knowledge in the fields of British art and architectural history, and of British visual culture understood more broadly, from the medieval period to the present day. All supported topics must have a clear art-historical perspective, including those that focus on recent or contemporary artistic practice. All applications must demonstrate that British art, architecture or visual culture provides a substantial focus for their project. Applications will be assessed according to their academic rigour, originality, and contribution to scholarship. We do not fund research projects focusing on archaeology, current architecture practice, or the performing arts.

To apply for a Senior Fellowship you must be a prominent and established scholar in the field of British art or architectural history, ideally with a significant publishing record.

Senior Fellowships are for the academic year 2022/2023 and may be taken between September 2022 and September 2023. Fellowships cannot be deferred to later academic years nor can they run concurrently with a Fellowship awarded by another institution.

Applications for shorter periods than twelve months will not be accepted.

Selection Criteria

  • Applications will be assessed according to their academic rigour, originality, and contribution to scholarship.
