Memoria Romana and the Max Planck Institute Research Award are pleased to invite proposals for eight doctoral fellowships and international research stipends, primarily for younger scholars. These awards will be granted for work on subjects relating to memory and memorialization in the areas of Roman history, literature, archaeology, art, and religion, with a tenure of one year (with a possibility of renewal for a second year).
Recipients can pursue their research at any location of their choice but will collaborate with Professor Karl Galinsky (UT Austin) and come to Austin, Texas or Bochum, Germany on a periodic basis for colloquia and discussion with other recipients. Costs for such travel will be defrayed by the Project.
The research stipends are subventions of maximally $5,000, especially for projects leading to publication. They may include, for example, travel to museums, libraries, and archaeological sites.
Applicants from all countries are eligible for the awards.
More information about the requirements and application procedures can be found at the Memoria Romana homepage.
Applications will be considered every three months. Deadlines for receiving applications are 1 November, 1 February, 1 May, and 1 August. The grant project will be continued until 2012.
Applications should be sent to Ms. Sarah Davies electronically (s_davies@mail. utexas.edu) with the words ‘Memoria Proposal’ in the subject line or to the address below:
