Martin Miller and Hannah Norbert-Miller Visiting Fellowships in German-Speaking Exile Studies 2012-2013


The Fellowship(s)
Endowed by a generous bequest from the estate of Martin Miller and Hannah Norbert-Miller, funding is available in 2012-2013 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. Since the Research Centre for German and Austrian Exile Studies was set up, 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 is £1,000 per month for a period of between one amd three months.

The fellowships are tenable for the period stated between 1 September 2012 and 30 June 2013. It may be possible to extend the period of the fellowship, however, this will not attract any financial support beyond the amount stated above.

What We Offer
The Institute can offer shared office accommodation with wifi, internet/email, photocopying/printing facilities, and access to the Institute's Germanic Studies Library, the Senate House Library, and the libraries of the other Institutes that make up the School of Advanced Study (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. Fellows are offered free access to all the Institute's events, and are encouraged to participate actively.

What Visiting Fellows Do
Fellows should write a short report on the progress their research has made at the conclusion of their visit for internal reporting and possible publicity. Fellows are required to contribute to the scholarly activity of the Institute and the wider School of Advanced Study and, where their stay in London permits, are expected to contribute a presentation to the Research Centre for German and Austrian Exile Studies seminar series. Fellows are invited to place a recent, normally unpublished, piece of work in our e-repository, SAS-Space. Publications resulting from research carried out during the tenure of the fellowship must carry due acknowledgment of the Institute, and where appropriate, a copy should be presented to the Germanic Studies Library.

Financial Arrangements
The awards made are intended to subsidise the costs of accommodation during the fellow's stay in London. Payment is made direct to the award holder's bank account at the beginning of the tenure of the fellowship. Accommodation is not provided and award holders should make their own arrangements. A list of hotels and guest houses is available on our website, and we can also put award holders in touch with people offering private accommodation. The University of London Accommodation office can also assist.

Visas (New Legislation)
Regulations require non-European nationals to obtain an ID card before entering the UK. At the time of applying for an entry visa, the Visa office should provide award holders with appropriate forms enabling them to acquire an ID card, which will be valid until the visa expires.
