In order to promote scholarly research, exchange, and conversation about the medieval world, the Committee on Medieval Studies welcomes a small number of Visiting Scholars and Visiting Fellows each academic year. Visiting Scholars and Fellows may work in any field dealing with some aspect of medieval society, religion, or culture in Europe, Africa, or Eurasia, and are welcomed as full members of Harvard’s rich intellectual and social community of medievalists.
Visiting Scholars may be appointed to terms ranging from three to six months. They enjoy full access to Harvard libraries and many other university facilities, an email account, and shared office space during the period of their appointment. They are expected to be engaged in research projects that draw upon Harvard’s manuscript, library, and other resources; to remain in residence in the Cambridge/Boston area during their appointment; to participate fully in the seminars, colloquia, and other activities of the Committee on Medieval Studies; and to share the results of their research in a seminar or other public venue.
Applications are accepted twice yearly. Those expecting to hold a visiting position at Harvard in Spring 2018 must submit all materials no later than 15 September 2017; those applying for Fall 2018 should submit applications by 9 February 2018. Materials may be submitted electronically to email@example.com (with the subject line “Visiting Scholar Application”), or by regular mail to:
