Robert M. Kingdon, a distinguished historian of early modern Europe, generously donated funds for one to two Kingdon Fellowships to scholars outside the University of Wisconsin-Madison who are engaged in historical, literary, and philosophical studies of Judeo-Christian religious traditions and their role in society from antiquity to the present, broadly understood. 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 at the Institute for Research in the Humanities at UW-Madison 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. The award provides a stipend of $51,000, office space, support services, and access to all university facilities.

Deadline: November 1, 2015
