James Loeb Fellowships for the Classical Tradition in Art and Architecture

he Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte will award two James Loeb Fellowships for the Classical Tradition in Art and Architecture.

The fellowship commemorates James Loeb (1867 New York – 1933 München), graduate of Harvard University, initiator of the Loeb Classical Library project and art collector. The fellowship is intended to support research that reflects Loeb’s central interests.

The fellowship is intended for doctoral students and postdoctoral scholars who have graduated within the last five years and who are working on a project related to the classical tradition in art and architecture, from the Middle Ages to the present.

Fellows are expected to partake in the activities of the ZI and to present the fellowship project.

The fellowship lasts three months, starting either on June 1, 2020 or on September 1, 2021. In addition to a monthly stipend of 1.500 EUR, lodging will be provided in a form of an apartment. Please indicate if you prefer starting in June or in September. Individuals applying from outside of Germany may be awarded a one-time travel subvention.

Please submit a CV and a project description (no more than 3000 characters) and the contact information of two potential referees.

Please send your application in electronic form to fellowships@zikg.eu by January 31, 2021.
