TitelVisiting Fellowships in German-Speaking Exile in the UK 2010-11

The Fellowship(s)

Endowed by a generous bequest from the estate of Martin Miller and Hannah Norbert-Miller, funding is available in 2010-11 for researchers in the field of German-speaking exile in the UK wishing to work at the Institute's Germanic Studies Library and its archives. The Exile Archive dates to 1996-97 when the collection was established at the then Institute of Germanic Studies (now Institute of Germanic & Romance Studies). The Institute already held the papers of several individuals such as Rudolf Majut, Herbert Thoma and Berthold Auerbach, who were exiled from Germany and Austria during the 1930s as a result of persecution under the National Socialist regime. However, since the setting up of the Research Centre for German and Austrian Exile Studies, the Institute has attracted further significant donations and bequests, among the most important being the papers of the Anglo-Austrian Society and the archive of Martin Miller and Hannah Norbert-Miller.

The Fellowship(s) are open to applicants from the UK and overseas. Candidates should have completed their doctorate and have a strong publications record. The Fellowship(s) are designed to provide a contribution to temporary living expenses in London, or to enable those in employment to take unpaid leave to further their studies. The award in 2010-2011 is £1,000 per month for up to three months. Shorter visits of one or two months may also be applied for.

What we Offer

The Institute can usually offer shared office space, internet/email facilities and access to the Institute's Germanic Studies Library, the Senate House Library, and libraries of other Institutes within the School of Advanced Study (e.g. the Institutes of Advanced Legal Studies, Classical Studies, Commonwealth Studies, Historical Research, the Americas, and the Warburg Institute). Admission to the British Library can be arranged as appropriate. The library of the German Historical Institute and the The Wiener Library are both within walking distance.

Fellows are encouraged to participate actively in the Institute's programme of events, and are required to present a short written report on the progress their research has made at the conclusion of their visit. Publications resulting from research carried out during the period of the Fellowship must carry due acknowledgement of the Institute and, where appropriate, a copy should be presented to the Germanic Studies Library.

Method of Application

Candidates should send their cv and covering letter, with details of the research project to be undertaken at the Institute (ca. 1,000 words), indicating the expected duration of stay and when they intend taking up the award if successful, to reach Jane Lewin at the IGRS, either by post to IGRS, University of London, Senate House, Malet Steet, London WC1E 7HU, or by email. Candidates should also arrange for two academic references to be sent direct to Jane Lewin by the closing date; these may be sent as email attachments. Applicants will be informed of the outcome in June 2010.
Closing date for applications: 30 April 2010.
