Fellowship in African Art at the Edith O'Donnell Institute of Art History, UT Dallas

The Edith O'Donnell Institute of Art History, August 22, 2016 2016-17 Fellowship in African Art at the Edith O'Donnell Institute of Art History Founded in 2014, the Edith O’Donnell Institute of Art History is a center for innovative research and graduate education in the history of art, and a community of scholars dedicated to collaboration and exchange. The Edith O’Donnell Fellowship supports an early-career art historian of outstanding merit and potential for a period of work on a project related to the research initiatives of the Edith O’Donnell Institute of Art History at the University of Texas at Dallas.

For the 2016-2017 year the O’Donnell institute seeks to appoint a scholar of African Art, with an emphasis on connections across geography and culture. In addition, the O’Donnell Institute Fellow will be invited to work closely with the African Collection at the Dallas Museum of Art, and to collaborate with scholars, curators, and conservators throughout the DFW. During the fellowship period O’Donnell Fellows must dedicate themselves to their proposed projects full-time and in residence, and engage fully in the scholarly life of the O’Donnell Institute.

Predoctoral applicants who will finish the dissertation during the fellowship year are eligible to apply; however, preference will be given to postdoctoral applicants who have completed the PhD (or terminal degree) within the past two years, i.e. after August 2014.

Fellowship announcement open until filled.
