The Morphomata Center for Advanced Studies in the Humanities at the University of Cologne is pleased to invite applications for fellowships in regard to the academic year 2017/18. The deadline is October 24, 2016.
The fellowships are awarded to scholars working within the Humanities (“Geisteswissenschaften”), in the field of portraiture/life imaging and/or biography/life writing. The focus of this year’s call for applications lies on the topic of portraiture. Morphomata especially invites projects from international scholars, with a cross-cultural approach. Fellowships are granted for a period of 6 to 9 months. Fellows must be in residence in Cologne during the fellowship period. The latter must include the months of October through February and/or April through July.
Morphomata is a member of the “Käte Hamburger Kollegs,” a collective of Centers for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. The Center’s Fellows are part of a community of scholars that explores manifestations of knowledge production in texts and material artifacts in cross-cultural and interdisciplinary perspectives. Case studies are at the core of the Center’s research.
Fellows will be provided with office space including work facilities and will participate in the academic life of both the Center and the University of Cologne.
