Humanities Research Center
2017-18 Rice Seminar “Forgery and the Ancient: Art, Agency, Authorship”
A central part of this seminar is the role that notions of antiquity play in the drive to create, reproduce and pass works of art and text for ancient treasure and testimony.  In different parts of the world, the antique begins and ends at different times, and it has diverse meanings for those who secretly recreate it.  Consequently, the Seminar will cast a wide net, and it will have within its compass over three thousand years of ancient history on six continents.

The 2017/2018 scholarships will be awarded to applicants with a special interest in the history of conflict moderation during the Cold War.

Was there a mutual relation or impact between civil society-actors and professional diplomats? Which conflicts were moderated, which ignored? Are these modes of conflict moderation of any relevance for the post-Cold War world? Historians of international relations, of the history of détente and arms control, of cultural affairs and the history of ideas are encouraged to submit their applications.

Getty Research Institute & Getty Villa
2017-2018 Getty Residential Grants
focus themes “Iconoclasm and Vandalism” and “The Classical World in Context: Persia”
The Getty Research Institute theme, ICONOCLASM AND VANDALISM, explores iconoclasm not only as a form of destruction or a means of repression, but also as a vehicle for creative expression and protest. Iconoclasm is transformative, creating entirely new objects or meanings through alterations to existing artworks. Charged with symbolism, these remains testify to a history of reception, offering clues about the life and afterlife of an object. To a certain extent, all radical changes in cultural production can be described as iconoclastic. Applicants are encouraged to adopt a broad approach to the theme by addressing topics such as religious and political iconoclasm, protection of cultural heritage, use of spolia, damnatio memoriae, street art, graffiti, performance art, or activism.
The Getty Villa theme, THE CLASSICAL WORLD IN CONTEXT: PERSIA, investigates the political, intellectual, religious, and artistic relations between Persia, Greece, and Rome from the ninth century BC to AD 651. Reaching from the borders of Greece to India, the Persian Empire was viewed by the Greeks as a vastly wealthy and powerful rival and often as an existential threat. The rise of the Roman Empire as a world power quickly brought it, too, into conflict with Persia, despite the common trade that flowed through their territories.

Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB)
Fakultät für Philologie
Graduiertenkolleg “Das Dokumentarische. Exzess und Entzug” (GRK 2132)
Das Graduiertenkolleg erforscht die medialen, insbesondere die textuellen, die audiovisuellen und digitalen Formen des Dokumentarischen sowie die kulturellen Bedingungen, unter denen es bestimmten Medien gelingt, zu dokumentarischen Leitmedien zu avancieren. Ein besonderes Augenmerk gilt dem Spannungsverhältnis zwischen einer exzessiven Präsenz des Dokumentarischen in den digitalen Kulturen der Gegenwart und der unvermeidlichen Selektivität, die sich an den blinden Flecken dokumen­tarischer Praktiken ebenso wie an ihren experimentellen Formen und ästhetischen Verfremdungen untersuchen lässt. Dies geschieht in den vier Arbeitsbereichen „Formengeschichte und Theoriebildung des Dokumenta­rischen“, „Medien-Poetiken des Dokumentarischen“, „Selbstdokumentation und Affektkulturen“ sowie „Techno- Politiken des Dokumentarischen“. Das Graduiertenkolleg richtet sich vor allem an Doktorand/innen der Medien-, Film-, Kultur-, Literatur- und Kunstwissenschaft.
1) Postdocstelle
Das Postdocprojekt soll auf dem Gebiet der Grundlagenforschung zu Formengeschichte und Theoriebildung des Dokumentarischen angesiedelt sein.

Amherst College
Center for Humanistic Inquiry
to explore the theme of “Conservation.”  We live in the Anthropocene, an epoch whose predominant narrative is one of decline and fall — of transformation, deterioration, and loss. Our theme invites inquiry into how humans have responded to that narrative. We associate the idea of conservation with care, repair, and stewardship both of nature and of culture. To conserve is to place oneself in relation to the past – perhaps an imagined past – that one values and believes ought to remain and persist into the future.   In rehabilitating wetlands and restoring great works of art, reanimating lost languages and moral traditions, creating archives and preserving work born digital, conservation generates a set of values, techniques, and orientations to temporality and change.  We invite applicants from scholars whose research takes up some aspect of our theme from a humanistic perspective.
