Call for Applications ReIReS Scholarships for Transnational Access

The EU funded project “Research Infrastructure on Religious Studies” (ReIReS) offers scholars the opportunity to spend two weeks in one of fourteen outstanding European research centres (libraries and archives) in Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Germany, and Italy to carry out their research project in Historical Religious Studies.

ReIReS grants to users support for travel (standard economy airfare) and subsistence (accommodation). Users spend typically two weeks at the provider institution, meeting experts and scholars, the curator of the special collections, conservator and restorers.

Users of ReIReS transnational access take advantage in dealing with all these materials with the constant tutorial of experts of the host provider who are specialists in the research field for which access has been requested, and who assist and guide the use and interpretation of the data.

Users should aim to publish the results of their research within a realistic period of time and preferably in open access, ISI or SCOPUS refereed journals that have a substantial academic impact. The support of the EU as well the use of the ReIReS services must be clearly acknowledged in the academic publication realised using ReIReS’ transnational access.

About

This call is part of the ReIReS programme “Transnational access to special collections and archival documents” which is organised by JGU Mainz and KU Leuven. It gives access to the collections of fourteen libraries and archives which offer their physical holdings as well as their analytical and technical data. The sources available include all kinds of material about the history of Christianity in Europe and also some of the most relevant collections of Jewish and Muslim documents and books, granting the effective possibility of attracting the attention of new users, as well as public interest, particularly for studies concerning interreligious and interconfessional dialogue throughout history.

ReIReS offers International Scholarships in Religious Studies:

Scholars from any academic discipline are invited to apply for a scholarship to spend two weeks in one of 14 outstanding European research centres (libraries and archives) in Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Germany, and Italy to carry out their research project in historical religious studies.

ReIReS grants:

  • Free travel and accommodation.
  • Free access to physical and virtual sources under the guidance of experts.

Call for Applications

Scholars from Europe and from countries associated to H2020 can apply for a scholarship to consult each of these special collections, libraries and archives (excluding those belonging to the user country) in order to develop innovative investigations in historical religious studies.

ReIReS grants to users the support for travel (standard economy airfare) and subsistence (accommodation). Users spent typically two weeks at the provider institution, meeting experts and scholars, the curator of the special collections, conservator and restorers.

Users of ReIReS transnational access take advantage in dealing with all these materials with the constant tutorial of experts of the host provider who are specialists in the research field for which access has been requested, and who assist and guide the use and interpretation of the data.

Users should aim to publish the results with a realistic timing and preferably in open access, ISI or SCOPUS refereed journals that have a substantial academic impact. Support of the EU as well the use of the ReIReS services must be clearly acknowledged in the academic publication realised using ReIReS’ transnational access.

ReIReS Invites Applications From:

1) scholars who develop a research project which involves the study of documents preserved in the provider institutions and need to have direct access to these documents and materials to develop their researches or to complete their analysis;

2) experts in historical religious studies who, during the development of their research, need to integrate their knowledge with those available through the access to the materials preserved in transnational access providers;

3) curators of special collections and archives, who need to enlarge their knowledge in dealing with documents concerning historical religious studies to manage other collections of documents.

Each proposal submitted for ReIReS transnational access should aim to:

  • Increase the knowledge in a specific area of historical religious studies;
  • Strengthen the interdisciplinary approach within historical religious studies;
  • Foster international cooperation in developing research activities in the domain of historical religious studies.
