Institute of Germanic & Romance Studies

School of Advanced Study, University of London

The Institute of Germanic & Romance Studies [IGRS] offers both stipendiary and non-stipendiary Visiting Fellowships (for postdoctoral and advanced academics) and Junior Visiting Fellowships (for doctoral students) in the academic year 2011-12.

The IGRS was established in 2004 with the merger of the Institute of Germanic Studies (founded 1950) and the Institute of Romance Studies (founded 1989). It is one of the ten Institutes of the University of London's School of Advanced Study. Its purpose is to promote and facilitate the study of the cultures of countries speaking French, German, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese across all the disciplines of the humanities. It runs seminars, conferences, guest lectures, research degrees and research training, publication series, a journal and fellowships within these fields.

The IGRS has four Research Centres:

· The Centre for the Study of Cultural Memory;

· The Centre for the Study of Contemporary Women’s Writing;

· The Ingeborg Bachmann Centre for Austrian Literature;

· The Research Centre for German and Austrian Exile Studies.

IGRS Visiting Fellowships are open to researchers of any nationality wishing to benefit from a central London base, staying from two weeks to a year. Fellows are offered shared office space with wifi access plus photocopying and computer facilities, free access to IGRS events and a Senate House library card for the period of their stay. IGRS Junior Visiting Fellows are, in addition, invited to attend IGRS research training seminars and any other activities specific to postgraduates.

All Visiting Fellows of the Institute are expected to complete a brief report on the research undertaken during their stay; to give, if time in London allows it, a seminar as part of the IGRS Work-in-Progress seminar series, and to contribute a recent, normally unpublished piece of work to our e-repository, SAS-Space. Fellows in receipt of external funding who come for over a month are asked to pay a bench-fee of £100 per month.

In addition to the deadlines below, applications for non-stipendiary Visiting Fellowships may be considered at other times of the year by the same application method.

From 2010-11 Fellowships will be held within the four Research Centres:

· The CCM Fellowship in Cultural Memory;

· The CCWW Fellowship in Contemporary Women’s Writing;

· The IBC Fellowship in Austrian Literature; and

· The Martin Miller and Hannah Norbert-Miller Fellowship in Exile Studies (which is a stipendiary fellowship – see details below)

Please indicate on your application whether you are interested in applying for a named fellowship.


Unless otherwise specified below, application is by email to the Director, Professor Naomi Segal (, sending a curriculum vitae, a research proposal of 1000-2000 words, and the dates of your intended visit; you are asked to arrange for one reference to be sent at the same time. Your application will be considered by the Institute’s Advisory Council and you will be advised of the decision two months after the closing date.

Closing dates for application: 5 November 2010 and 5 May 2011


Visiting Fellowships are available in all the fields of research covered by the IGRS, as well as in interdisciplinary domains touching on the humanities. We particularly welcome applications in comparative and cultural studies.

The Institute's academic staff specialise in nineteenth- and twentieth-century literature, cultural studies, German philosophy, the history of ideas and comparative studies: the city (especially Berlin, Trieste), borders, the body, psychoanalysis, gender and sexuality, feminism, women's writing, Jewish writing, exile writing and children's literature. Further details of their research can be found at
