The Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art is pleased to launch the One Rome Fellowship for scholars, researchers, curators and other GLAM (galleries, libraries, archives, and museums) professionals from immediately post-doctoral to those internationally recognised in their field of expertise.
One Rome Fellowship is offered annually to allow an individual the unique opportunity to undertake three months of dedicated research and work on a topic of British-Italian art history whilst being based at the British School at Rome.
The three-month full-time Rome Fellowship based at the British School at Rome is designed to:
- Facilitate original and exciting new scholarship or research in a British-Italian art-historical topic of any period from the medieval era to the contemporary
- Recent Rome Fellow projects have included:
- Vernon Lee and Psychological Aesthetics
- Reproducing Classical Idioms of Power and Culture in Film
- Oscar Rejlander and British art photography in Rome
- Architecture and Urbanism between Italy and Rome
- John Henry Parker’s Historical Photographs of Rome
- The Rome Fellowship provides residential accommodation and meals at the British School at Rome for three months (as well as benefits such as Italian language lessons and assistance in gaining access to resources not normally open to the public).
- For applicants employed by an organisation, institution, or university there will also be an honorarium of £3,000 and up to £8,000 towards replacement staff costs, if required.
- For independent scholars there will be an honorarium of £7,000.
- The Centre does not pay full economic costs.
- If a fellow accepts full-time employment during the period of the Rome Fellowship, the Centre will request an appropriate reimbursement of the award.
- This fellowship is designed for an individual to work on a British-Italian art-historical topic of any period from the medieval era onwards.
- Applications are welcome from scholars, researchers, curators, archivists and GLAM professionals from immediately post-doctoral to those internationally recognised in their field of expertise. Applicants must have been awarded their doctorate by the closing date for applications.
- Applications are open to individuals from any country, and must be either competent in the Italian language or have a willingness to engage with it.
