We are offering 1 short-term Ouseley fellowship.
The aim of this award is to provide financial support towards living and subsistence costs in London to enable scholars to undertake a period research on the Arabic, Persian, Hindustani and other Oriental languages in this country.
The Warburg Institute is one of the world’s leading centres for studying the interaction of ideas, images and society. It is dedicated to the survival and transmission of culture across time and space, with special emphasis on the afterlife of antiquity. Its open-stack Library, Photographic Collection and Archive serve as an engine for interdisciplinary research, postgraduate teaching and a prestigious events and publication programme.
The annual group of fellows benefits from and contributes to the vibrant intellectual life of the Institute. They are given a space to work, are able to offer an introduction to their work in a Tea Time Talk and are encouraged to contribute the Institute’s blog: Mnemosyne. Situated in the heart of the Bloomsbury Knowledge Quarter, the Warburg offers scholars the opportunity to engage with academics not only within the institute, but also at local universities, museum and galleries and research institutes.
The following Fellowship is intended for scholars at any stage of their post-doctoral career. All Fellows will be expected to carry out original research on the topic for which they have been awarded their Fellowship. Applications will not be accepted from candidates proposing to revise their doctoral dissertation for publication
One fellowship available for a period of either two or three months.
The proposed research project should be on Arabic and/or Persian research and language. Preference will be given to scholars working in areas where the institute already has strengths, such as art, science, philosophy, religion and especially the transmission of ideas between cultures. The research would be firmly grounded in sources written in Arabic and/or Persian.
