Fellowship at Bard Graduate Center

From: Hanna B. Holling <hanna.hoelling<-a>

Research Fellowship
Bard Graduate Center, New York

The Bard Graduate Center is proud to announce a new funded research
fellowship Program. The BGC invites scholars from university, museum
and independent backgrounds to apply. Candidates must already have a
PhD or equivalent professional experience. The fellowship is open to
both collections-based research at the BGC or elsewhere in New York,
and to writing or reading projects in which being part of the BGC's
dynamic research environment is intellectually valuable.

The stipend rate is $3,500 per month and housing costs are assumed
by the BGC. Both long- and short-term fellowships are available (for
example, 6, 4, 2 or 1 month), with a one-month minimum. The timing
of dates will be negotiated with individual awardees. Fellows would
work in a Research Center alongside 12 other postdoctoral fellows.

The BGC is a graduate research institute devoted to study of the
decorative arts, design history, and material culture, drawing on
methodologies and approaches from art history, economic and cultural
history, history of technology, philosophy, anthropology, and
archaeology. It offers MA and PhD degrees, possesses a specialized
library of 60,000 volumes exclusive of serials, publishes West 86th:
A Journal of Decorative Arts, Design History and Material Culture,
Cultural Histories of the Material World (University of Michigan
Press) and the catalogues which accompany the four exhibitions it
presents every year in its Gallery space. Over 50 research seminars,
lectures and symposia are scheduled annually and are live-streamed
around the world on the BGC's YouTube channel.

Applicants should send a detailed description of their project,
explain why the BGC is an appropriate research affiliation, and
indicate the preferred length of such a fellowship. Two letters of
reference should be sent directly by the referees. All materials
should be sent by April 15, 2014 to
