2018– HARRIET BOYD HAWES FELLOWSHIP
The INSTAP Study Center for East Crete is pleased to announce the availability of a fellowship to be awarded on a competitive basis to an eligible candidate for work to be done at the Study Center in Pacheia Ammos, Crete in 2018–2019. This fellowship is aimed at the investigation of the role of women or gender studies in Bronze Age Crete. They are intended to highlight spheres and aspects of ancient life that have not yet received sufficient attention in Aegean Bronze Age studies. The fellowship is intended for scholars in the field of the Aegean Bronze Age/Early Iron Age who have completed their PhD Dissertations. The fellowship will be awarded in the amount of $3,000. Applications must be received by e-mail no later than February 1, 2018. Please send your applications and required information as attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to the completed application form, proposals should include a curriculum vitae of the applicant, a page summarizing the title and intent of the project, an outline of the intended project, relevant bibliography, copies of appropriate permits, and two letters of support for the project by two colleagues. The fellowship is open to those holding a PhD in Archaeology, Anthropology, Art History, Ancient History, or Classics. The recipient must be prepared to present an overview of his or her work and findings in the KENTRO Newsletter and/or a public lecture at the INSTAP Study Center for East Crete. The research should be carried out on Crete and the grant includes membership fees to the INSTAP Study Center. Desirable methods of inquiry include:
- Ethnography/experimental archaeology
- Exploration of written archives and collections from various periods
- Library research
- Examination of archaeological materials, including artifacts, bones and other organic remains
This fellowship is intended to provide supplementary income for researchers who are either exploring new fields of study or finishing extended research. The amount of the award is US $3,000, which can be applied to travel or living expenses, but should not be used as salary or for the purchase of equipment (e.g., cameras or computers). The primary aim of the funding is to stimulate new forms of research, which will broaden the scope of Minoan studies.
Consideration for the fellowship is open to all candidates meeting the stated requirements. Awards are made irrespective of race, gender, religion, national origin, age, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, and actual or perceived medical conditions. It is possible that in the absence of qualified candidates with appropriate projects, a fellowship will not be awarded.'
