DGPh Research Award. Deadline: 30 Sept., 2020

The Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Photographie (German Photography Society, DGPh) have joined forces to promote academic exchange in the field of photography. As part of their collaboration, the “DGPh History of Photography Research Award”, originally established in 1978, will be replaced by two separate awards for research and for innovative publications, awarded every two years.

Young researchers’ innovative power and creativity have a significant impact on how photography is perceived and reflected upon. The “Thinking Photography. DGPh Research Award” is awarded for approaches in the humanities, cultural or social sciences which make an exceptional contribution to photography research. Academic research projects as well as independent publications introducing fresh research perspectives to the medium of photography qualify for the €3,000 prize. Works committed to venturing beyond disciplinary or methodological boundaries and open to new methods and questions are of particular interest.

Photography is no longer debated and reflected upon exclusively in scientific publications – an innovative digital culture of discussion has permeated the field of photography. The second new award “Writing Photography. DGPh Prize for Innovative Publication” recognizes shorter formats such as blogs, columns and reviews, online publications and those creatively merging text and photographic material. The winner will receive €1,000 in prize money.

An international jury will select the awards’ recipients. The award ceremony will be held every two years as a joint public event organized by the DGPh and the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation.

We look forward to numerous submissions of digitally or analogously published articles from the past two years. The submission deadline for both prizes is September 30, 2020. Details on this and the application documents can be found here: www.dgph.de/preise

The Patricia D. Klingenstein Library at the New-York Historical Society is home to more than 350,000 books, three million manuscripts, and distinctive collections of maps, photographs, and prints, as well as ephemera and family papers documenting the history of the United States from a distinctly New York perspective.

Significant holdings relate to Robert Livingston and the Livingston family, Rufus King, Horatio Gates, Albert Gallatin, Cadwallader Colden, Robert Fulton, Richard Varick, and many other notable individuals. Also well documented within the Library’s collections are major social movements in American history, especially abolitionism, temperance, and social welfare. The Library’s visual archives include some of the earliest photographs of New York, a significant collection of Civil War images, and the archives of major architectural firms of the later 19th century. Among the more than 1.6 million works comprising the Museum’s art collections are all 435 preparatory watercolors for John James Audubon’s Birds of America, a preeminent collection of Hudson River School landscapes; and an exceptional collection of decorative and fine arts spanning four centuries.

The New-York Historical Society offers a rich research environment that promotes an active intellectual community. Fellows are encouraged to explore the collections and take advantage of the full scope of the Library and Museum’s resources and to share their research during their tenure through informal talks and blog posts. Educational outreach and public programs further support New-York Historical’s intellectual mission to explore the richly layered political, cultural, and social history of New York and the nation, as well as the making and the meaning of history.

The New-York Historical Society offers several long- and short-term fellowships during the academic year. Designed to encourage and promote the use of the institution’s diverse collections of primary and secondary sources, the fellowships are open to scholars at various times during their academic careers.

Two-year postdoctoral position in Spatial Art History, Paris. Deadline: Jan 7, 2013

ARTL@S Postdoctoral Fellowship

“Spatial art history”
École normale supérieure, Paris,
Application deadline: Jan 7, 2013

September 1, 2013 to August 31, 2015
Yearly appointment: Euro 30.000

2 years, 38 hrs a week

Announcement
The École normale supérieure (Paris), the LabEx TransferS, and ARTL@S
(a digital humanities project sponsored by the Agence Nationale pour la
Recherche) are pleased to announce a two-year postdoctoral position in
the field of Spatial Art History. The postdoctoral fellow will
participate in the activities of ARTL@S (www.artlas.ens.fr) while
developing an independent research project pertaining to related
questions in this field. Through his or her involvement within the
international and transdisciplinary ARTL@S team, the fellow will
acquire valuable experience, gain expertise, and develop his or her
academic network, thereby increasing potential career prospects within
the international academic community.

Qualifications
The successful candidate will have a PhD in art history or in a related
field (i.e. History, Geography, Sociology, etc…), received no earlier
than 2008, and will specialize in issues related to geography of art,
global art history, or cultural heritage in a transnational
perspective. He or she may work on any region or period between the
18th and the 21st centuries; however, preference will be given to
non-Western European and non-North-American projects, and/or world-art
historical or global art-historical projects. Candidates are invited to
propose research projects that can benefit from the tools ARTL@S has
developed (quantitative and serial analysis, databases, geographical
information systems (GIS), digital cartography). The right candidate
will also demonstrate a keen interest in digital humanities, especially
in databases and cartography.
While previous experience in these fields, along with web development
and GIS, is not a prerequisite, basic knowledge and a willingness to
acquire expertise in those areas is essential. The postdoctoral fellow
will indeed have to work with the ARTL@S’ database, GIS interface and
website.
Likewise, fluency in French is not required, but some basic knowledge
and a commitment to learn French and become fluent while living in
Paris is. Intensive courses can be taken by the successful candidate at
École normale supérieure for free.

Background
ARTL@S is a group of young scholars exploring questions about the
challenges of Global Art History with spatial and transnational
approach, and digital methods. We are part of Labex TransferS
(www.transfers.ens.fr ), a multi-departmental research group whose
members are fully engaged in original scholarship on cultural
circulations. ARTL@S and Labex Transfers are linked to the École
Normale Supérieure (www.ens.fr), a “grande école” with a long and
distinguished tradition of excellence in research and teaching.
ARTL@S’ goal is to produce a spatial history of literature and the
arts. Our research is based on a transnational geographic method and a
digital approach. We aim to enlarge the traditional understanding of
the history of art and of literature by adopting rigorous
transnational, serial, quantitative and cartographic procedures. This
international, interdisciplinary, and collective perspective tends to
contribute to a “Global Art History”, in a way that transcends the
traditional form of collected monographs on individual areas. ARTL@S
also endeavors to share, to compare and to enhance databases as well as
to process collective data with effective digital tools.

ARTL@S’ activities and publications are structured around five axes:
• A history of the geographies of art and literature in modern
metropolitan areas (particularly in Paris from the 19th through the
21st centuries), analyzing the location of various artistic activities,
their spatial evolutions, and their relationship to other specific
cartographies (social, economic, etc.)
• A history of artistic circulations since the beginning of the modern
era
• A history of translation (especially of literature and writings on
art) since the beginning of the modern era
• A transnational history of cultural heritage (18th-20th centuries)
• A history of the uses of cartography in art

For more information, consult our detailed website at: http://www.artlas.ens.fr
Responsibilities
• Participate in the Academic committee the bi-monthly ARTL@S workshop
• Organize the activities for one of the project axes in close
cooperation with its coordinator
• Assist with the publication of the results on ARTL@S’ website
• Organize and supervise the publication of an issue of the semi-annual
ARTL@S Bulletin on a topic of his or her choice
• Collaborate on the organization of June 2015 conclusive conference,
both from a academic and a logistic point of view

Application Procedures
Completed applications are due on January 7th, 2013, for a preliminary
overview at the Selection Committee’s meeting.

Applicants are asked to submit:
• A cover letter, in English, in which the candidates express their
interest in ARTL@S and their expertise in the practice of a spatial
history of arts, Global art history, the history of international
artistic relationships and cultural exchanges, or in quantitative and
cartographic art history.

double-spaced)
• A project proposal in which they describe their research project
(maximum five pages double-spaced)
