Bard Graduate Center Visiting Fellowships, 2021-22
Bard Graduate Center (BGC) invites scholars from university, museum, and independent backgrounds with a PhD or equivalent professional experience to apply for non-stipendiary visiting fellowships, to be held during the 2021–22 academic year. BGC Visiting Fellowships, which are intended for scholars who have already secured means of funding, provide scholars with workspace in the BGC Research Center and enable them to join our dynamic intellectual and scholarly community in New York City. Visiting Fellowships represent our commitment to conversation and scholarly communication. We are happy to welcome scholars who similarly seek a serious but informal intellectual environment in which to pursue their work in the decorative arts, design history, and material culture. Visiting Fellowships may be awarded for anywhere from one month to the full academic year.
Bard Graduate Center is a graduate research institute devoted to the study of the decorative arts, design history, and material culture, drawing on methodologies and approaches from art history, economic and cultural history, history of technology, philosophy, anthropology, and archaeology. Our MA and PhD degree programs, Gallery exhibitions, research initiatives, and public programs explore new ways of thinking about the cultural history of the material world. We possess a specialized library of 60,000 volumes exclusive of serials and publish the journals West 86th: A Journal of Decorative Arts, Design History, and Material Culture and Source: Notes in the History of Art, the book series Cultural Histories of the Material World (all with the University of Chicago Press), and the catalogues that accompany the exhibitions presented every year in our Gallery (with Yale University Press). Over 50 research seminars, lectures, and symposia are scheduled annually and are livestreamed around the world on Bard Graduate Center’s YouTube channel.
