Curatorial & Research Fellowships. Deadline: Oct. 15, 2018

SPECIAL CLARK FELLOWSHIPS

The Clark Art Institute’s Research and Academic Program (RAP) awards funded residential fellowships to national and international scholars, critics, and curators of exceptional promise and accomplishment. Proposed research projects should display a critical commitment to innovative inquiry in the history, theory, and interpretation of art and visual culture.
In addition to the semester-long Clark fellowships, RAP offers a number of special fellowships for specific research interests.

These include:
Short-term Curatorial Fellowships
Available in September, October, and November, these new month-long fellowships are designed for curators, offering a period of time that is more suited for museum professionals. The fellowship provides the opportunity to carry out research while participating in the intellectual and residential life of the Clark and RAP.

Center for Spain in America Fellowship
This one-semester fellowship is intended to support the study of all aspects of Spanish art from the early medieval period to the beginning of the twentieth century, as well as the worldwide impact of Spanish art and artists.

Mellon Network Fellowship
This fellowship supports a Clark residency of one semester for a scholar involved in a project addressing communication and technology—of all eras—across the visual humanities. The award also supports critical thinking about the changing states of media in art-historical research today.

All Clark fellows are provided offices in the open-stack, 280,000-volume art history library of the Manton Research Center; apartments in the gracious residence across the street from our 140-acre campus; reimbursement of travel expenses; and a stipend.

Applications are due by October 15, 2018
