Residential Grants and Fellowships at the Getty Research Institute

Applications are available now online for the 2023/2024 Residential Grants and Fellowships at the Getty Research Institute in the following competitions:

  • Getty Scholar Grants
  • Pre- and Postdoctoral Fellowships

Applicants are invited to address one of the following future themes:

Art and Technology (Research Institute)

2023/2024

The making of art has always been impacted by the limitations and advances of the technologies at hand. Throughout human history, artists have invariably embraced technological innovations—from the casting of ancient bronzes to the invention of the tin paint tube to the printing of three-dimensional objects—and harnessed the new possibilities afforded by them. Art and technology are deeply intertwined; after all, the terms “technology” and “technique” are both derived from the Greek word techne, meaning “art” or “craft.” Technological developments spur artistic experimentation by extending the horizon of what is possible and by encouraging artists to consider traditional mediums in new ways and to explore new mediums altogether.

The theme of “Art & Technology” encompasses questions on manufacture and craft, process and invention, materiality and immateriality, and the digital and the virtual. How do indigenous epistemologies support or underpin alternative concepts and frameworks for understanding the relationship between art and technology? How do technologies move across cultures, and how are they transformed in the process? Applicants may also consider the connection between ancient technologies and contemporary practices, transcultural adaptations or evolutions in technology, implications of nonhuman systems of production, productive misuse by artists, and how technological advances have changed and challenged modes of viewership.

 

African American Art History Initiative (Research Institute)

2023/2024

Getty Research Institute invites applications from scholars of African American art and cultural history who would like to participate in the upcoming 2023/2024 scholar year. Two opportunities for nine-month residencies have been created under the Getty’s African American Art History Initiative (AAAHI), an ambitious program that aims to address an incomplete version of American art history by increasing the Research Institute’s African American—related collections, research, exhibitions, projects, publications, events, and partnerships with local and national institutions. The fellowships will provide financial support and housing to scholars undertaking research projects that speak to the goals of the initiative. As part of the larger scholar year cohort, AAAHI fellows will have opportunities to present their research and receive feedback from an interdisciplinary group of peers.

Our special collections include archival and primary source material related to African American art history—particularly post-World War II, modern, and contemporary—and we are acquiring and processing major collections or collaborating on acquisitions from a range of artists and institutions. We welcome expressions of interest from scholars working at predoctoral, postdoctoral, mid-career, and senior levels who focus on African American art and cultural history in all time periods and media and in a broad range of theoretical and methodological traditions. Applicants should indicate how their project would benefit from our resources, which might include special collections, the Getty Library, or the scholar year cohort, and from alignment with AAAHI’s aims and goals.

 

Paul Revere Williams Research Project (an AAAHI-related project, Research Institute)

2023/2024

Paul Revere Williams was one of America’s greatest twentieth-century architects. During a prolific career spanning almost six decades, Williams mastered a wide range of architectural styles and designed more than 3,000 structures working for individual clients as well as government and industry. He also overcame the legal, social, professional, and institutional barriers that prevented many African Americans from entering the field of architecture. The Getty has launched a major research project focusing on Williams’ life and legacy, which includes a one-year residential research opportunity and welcomes expressions of interest from emerging scholars of architectural history who would like to join the project’s team.

We have three themes for the upcoming 23-24 Scholar year and the applications are due Oct. 3, 2022.

The American Philological Association seeks to appoint an Editor for Monographs for a term of four years, to begin with the January 2012 meetings in Philadelphia.  We seek a senior scholar with editorial experience and an interest in shaping outstanding work for publication in a distinguished series.  The editor reviews proposals and manuscripts, works with authors to bring manuscripts to final form, and is the Association's contact with the publisher through the process.  While we continue our relationship with Oxford University Press, we particularly seek an editor willing to explore alternate and innovative forms of publication for appropriate scholarly works. Candidates should submit, and nominees will be invited to submit, a current c.v. and a brief statement outlining their interest. Applications and nominations may be submitted in confidence to the Vice President for Publications at provost@georgetown.edu. Consideration of candidates, who must be members of the APA in good standing, will begin on or after June 1, 2011.

"As a rule, digging beneath the surface of modern Rome turns up ancient buildings. Excavations conducted in 2007, just steps from the traffic hub of Piazza Venezia, revealed two Imperial era villas embellished with mosaics, polychrome wall veneers, fountains and frescoes. Dating back to the second and third centuries, these opulent dwellings were abandoned in late antiquity, filled with landfill, and unknowingly used as foundations for the 16th-century Palazzo Valentini, now seat of the Province of Rome’s offices."

"THE 9/11 memorial in New York, still being planned, is to be dedicated on the 10th anniversary of the attack. Intended as a place for commemoration, reflection, education and solace, the memorial and museum will serve as a repository for the remains of the victims.

"Some families of the victims have criticized the planned memorial because they are offended by the prospect of sharing the resting place of their loved ones with museum-going strangers. Because the structure will be built seven stories below the spot where the twin towers once stood, visitors will have to venture underground to pay their respects, a prospect that also is not comforting.

"But one feature of the National September 11 Memorial and Museum seems above reproach: a quotation from Virgil’s “Aeneid” that will be inscribed on a wall in front of the victims’ remains."
