2019 Parkes Institute Visiting Fellowship in Cultural Encounters between Jews and non-Jews

The Parkes Institute for the Study of Jewish/non-Jewish Relations at the University of Southampton is delighted to invite applications for 2 visiting fellows to attend a residential workshop in the field of ‘cultural encounters between Jews and non-Jews’.

We welcome applications from scholars at any stage of their career, working on topics related to cultural transfers, encounters and representations in Jewish/non-Jewish relations, from antiquity to the present. Special consideration will be given to applications that demonstrate engagement with the Parkes Library and Jewish archives at the University of Southampton. Scholars should have completed their PhD and be affiliated to a non-UK institution.

The fellowships are for a minimum of one month and a maximum of two months, and will provide up to £2,500 to cover travel, accommodation and living expenses. The fellowships are offered for the autumn term and should be taken up between October and mid December 2019, with as much overlap as possible between the two fellows.

The Parkes Institute will provide access to the Parkes Library and Special Collections, as well as to a working space and university facilities. We can also provide support for visa applications where needed.

Fellows will be based in Southampton and are expected to attend Parkes events (such as the Tuesday evening seminars and doctoral seminars) and to participate in the intellectual life of the Institute.

Fellows are also expected to deliver a seminar paper and to present their work to students.

Please send a CV and a 500-word statement outlining your research project and your plan for the fellowship to Prof Dan Levene (D.Levene@soton.ac.uk) by the 14th August 2019.
