Type: Awards, Grants, Fellowships [View all]
Posted by: Institute for Research in the Humanities at the University of Wisconsin-Madison
Deadline: Thu, November 2nd, 2017
Through a generous bequest of Robert M. Kingdon, the Institute for Research in the Humanities at the University of Wisconsin-Madison offers two Robert M. Kingdon Fellowships to be awarded to scholars from outside the UW-Madison working on the historical, literary, artistic, and/or philosophical studies of Christian and/or Jewish religious traditions and their role in society. Projects may focus on any period from antiquity to the present, on any part of the world, and in any field(s) in the humanities; can range widely or focus on a particular issue; and can explore various forms of Jewish and/or Christian traditions; the interaction of one or both of these religious traditions with other religious traditions; and/or the relationship of one or both of these religious traditions to other aspects of society such as power, politics, culture, experience, creativity, nationality, cosmopolitanism, gender, and sexuality. Projects that incorporate consideration of religion’s interaction with society are especially welcome.
Fellows must be in residence throughout the academic year (except for short research trips, lectures, conferences, etc.) and may extend their residency through the following summer on a non-stipendary basis. Fellows are expected to present their work at an Institute seminar and participate in the weekly seminars. Applicants must be in possession of the doctorate at the time of application. For the 2018-2019 fellowship year, the award provides a stipend of $55,000, office space, support services, and access to all university facilities.
*Applications are due November 2. Notification of awards will be in March. The application is available after July 15th through the IRH website.
