Fondazione 1563 calls for applications for ‘The Age and the Culture of the Baroque’ fellowship program 2019

The Fondazione 1563 per l’Arte e la Cultura della Compagnia di San Paolo (Fondazione 1563) Study Program on the Age and the Culture of Baroque aims to promote research devoted to Baroque studies and provide young scholars with suitable titles to open up career opportunities in academic and cultural institutions. To that purpose, since 2013 the foundation has been launching calls for proposals to award fellowship grants on Baroque Culture to Italian and foreign scholars up to and including 35 years of age. This is the seventh edition of the competition.

The Fellowships aim to promote original and individual researches focused on the age and the culture of Baroque in the 17th and 18th centuries. Submitted research projects will have to develop a research subject of the candidates’ choice, articulated in the different humanities, paying specific attention to the connection between the local and the global dimension of the studies.

The competition is open to researchers born after the 1st of January 1984 holding a Master of Science, or other equivalent master’s degrees, obtained at an Italian or equivalent foreign university. Priority will be given to applicants with a PhD or equivalent awarded by an Italian or foreign university. The candidates have to apply by 27 July by filling in this application form.

Further information can be found on the website http://www.fondazione1563.it/en/

Deadline: 27 July 2019, 12 am

The winners’ names will be published no later than 30 November 2019.

The Fellowship will begin on 1 January 2020 and will last for one year.
