Clinton Silver Residential Workshop in Jewish Migration

The Parkes Institute for the Study of Jewish/non-Jewish Relations at the University of Southampton is delighted to host annual fellowships in the field of Jewish migration.

We welcome applications from scholars at any stage of their career, working on topics related to Jewish migration. 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 £2500 to cover travel, accommodation and living expenses. The fellowship is usually offered for the summer term.

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 are 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.

The next call for applications will be advertised in the Summer-Autumn 2019. Further information contact Dr Claire Le Foll (c.le-foll@soton.ac.uk).
