Visiting Fellowships - CRASSH
(18 August 2005)
The Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities at the University of Cambridge invites applications for its visiting fellowships for the 2006-07 academic year. Up to six fellowships are available annually to support research in the area of the centre's current theme. The theme for 2006-2007 is evidence, and specifically the following: how evidence is defined, used and managed; how we can understand the processes through which evidence is interpreted; who gets to define and interpret evidence; what bearing the questions have on interdisciplinarity. Proposals should be interdisciplinary in nature within the broad field of the arts, humanities and social sciences. Projects which evaluate and synthesise existing scholarship are of particular interest. Visiting fellowships can be awarded for periods of three to nine weeks in any one Cambridge term, during which fellows are expected to be in residence in Cambridge. Applicants should have an established record of scholarly excellence and should be below retirement age. A sum equivalent to a return economy airfare by the most direct route is provided. There are no nationality restrictions.
