Institute for Research in the Humanities at UW-Madison Offers Two Kingdon Fellowships
Tuesday, August 4, 2015
Posted by: Lorraine Cashman
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
