Paris x Rome Fellowship
The Bibliotheca Hertziana – Max-Planck-Institut für Kunstgeschichte and the German Center for Art History – Institute of the Max Weber Foundation (DFK Paris) annually offer six-month research grants, allowing fellows to spend three months in each of the archives and/or libraries of Rome and Paris, exchange ideas with the institutes’ researchers, and investigate transnational, art-historical perspectives in France and Italy.
The Paris x Rome Fellowship is embedded in the respective research activities of both institutes and actively participates in them: at the Bibliotheca Hertziana, the fellowship ties in with the Rome Contemporary initiative and research group, examining the art of the modern and contemporary period in Rome; at the DFK Paris with the epistemological debate on art relations during the cold war.
Pre-docs and post-docs in art history and neighboring disciplines are invited to apply. The Paris x Rome Fellowship includes reimbursement of travel costs, a monthly stipend of at least 1.700€/ month, and access to the resources as well as integration into the research initiatives of both institutes. The application with curriculum vitae, list of publications, project description with bibliographic references and work plan in individual PDF files can be written in German, French, Italian or English. Competency in French and Italian is required. The Paris x Rome fellowship is an in-residence program.
The call for applications is issued once a year in summer for the following year and is published on the institute's website in the section Opportunities.
