TURIN HUMANITIES PROGRAMME - FELLOWSHIPS - Enlightenment legacy: the rights of man in a global perspective

Categories: News | Funding

Fondazione 1563 per l’Arte e la Cultura of the Compagnia di San Paolo

has since 2013 supported research and advanced training in the field of

the humanities. In a wider effort to pursue this goal, Fondazione 1563

is now expanding its fellowship programme to historical research in a

global perspective. To this end, it has created the Turin Humanities Programme,

a research initiative that will allow junior scholars to work on

interrelated research projects under the guidance of especially

appointed senior scholars.


DEADLINE: 15th February 2021


The Scientific Committee of the THP and Fondazione1563 have decided

to devote the first research cycle of the THP (2021-2023) to the

investigation of the Enlightenment legacy: the rights of man in a global perspective.


Fondazione 1563 is pleased to launch the first call for

applications to award 4 two-year fellowships for advanced studies on

this topic.


The 2020 call for applications is available online under THP/Call for applications/THP–2020: http://www.fondazione1563.it/en/thp/call-for-applications-thp/thp-2020/


For information and questions please email: virginia.ciccone@fondazione1563.it


Applicants are invited to submit research projects of a maximum of

3000 words, plus bibliography. Projects are expected to engage with one

or more aspects of the general research framework of Enlightenment

legacy: the rights of man in a global perspective.


Proposals are expected to focus on the worldwide legacy of

Enlightenment in the field of the rights of man, especially but not

exclusively in the nineteenth century, as described in the research

framework. Proposals should also contain an illustration of the

different project phases, the relevant sources and methodologies and the

expected outcomes, which will be considered an integral part of the

project itself.


The call is open to applicants holding a doctorate in History

or in any Humanities discipline. They must be fluent in English, both

spoken and written. English will be the default language of THP.


Applicants should normally be within 7 years of the award of their PhD.


There are no nationality requirements.


Fondazione 1563 encourages applications from scholars of all

backgrounds. We welcome diversity and are committed to creating an

inclusive work environment.


Each of the 4 Fellowships consists of an annual grant of €

25.000 (before taxes). The grant will last two years, starting on

September 1, 2021 until August 31, 2023. The total amount awarded to

each individual fellow during the two-year fellowship will therefore be €

50.000 (before taxes).


These grants may not be held in conjunction with any other award.
