This one-year fellowship is part of the Museum’s History of Art and Visual Culture Fellowship program and is intended as an independent research project. The fellowship encourages cross-departmental projects that explore connections between various cultures and collections in the Museum and that go beyond traditional boundaries, bridging the visual arts and other disciplines in the humanities, social sciences, performing arts, and fine arts. Fellows may explore connections between public practice, education, and the humanities, relating but not limited to curriculum development, gallery teaching, and interpretation. The project should relate to and make use of the Museum’s resources, including its collections, libraries, archives, and programs.
The deadline for Interdisciplinary Fellowship application materials, including transcripts and letters of recommendation, is 5 pm (EST) on Friday, November 4.
In addition to the CV/resume, official transcripts (junior applicants only), and three letters of recommendation, please also include:
- A statement of interest and project proposal, not to exceed 1,000 words, which addresses the following questions: 1) Why is this fellowship important or integral to your career or current practice? 2) How will you utilize the Museum’s resources and collections to achieve your objectives? 3) What will be the concrete result(s) of your fellowship project?
- A brief schedule of work to be accomplished during the fellowship period (separate from project proposal)
