ROTHERMERE AMERICAN INSTITUTE VISITING FELLOWSHIPS 2019-20
The RAI invites applications for Visiting Research Fellowships for 2019-20.
The closing date is 12 noon on Monday 11th February 2019.
RAI Visiting Research Fellowships
Visiting Research Fellowships (VRFs) provide an opportunity for early to mid-career academics to conduct research at the Rothermere American Institute, the foremost academic institution beyond America’s shores for teaching and research in US culture, history, literature and politics.
VRFs pursue research on diverse aspects of American culture, history, literature and politics in Oxford’s libraries, including the Institute’s Vere Harmsworth Library, which holds outstanding collections of American materials. VRFs are expected to use their time at the Institute to write books and articles, and to engage with the Institute’s lively community of scholars.
All VRFs have full access to the Vere Harmsworth Library – home to the finest academic collections in American history, politics and government outside North America – and to other libraries within the Bodleian Library system. The VRF is expected to spend at least three working days each week at the RAI and to give an academic paper at the Institute during the Fellowship period. The RAI is unable to offer stipends, but provides the VRF with a travel grant of up to £200 each term for research (the last two points do not apply to Vacation VRFs).
Fellowships are tenable for one or two terms, or for a full academic year. For dates of term, see http://www.ox.ac.uk/about/facts-and-figures/dates-of-term
Three types of VRF are offered:
