CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: Distinguished International Visiting Fellowships Program


As part of its international research collaboration, ARC Centre of Excellence in the History of Emotions (Europe 1100-1800) (CHE) will fund outstanding international scholars in the field to visit Australian universities and to work with members of the Centre on a research program of their choice.

Visiting fellowships normally last between four weeks and three months.  The Distinguished Visiting Fellow will be based at one of the five Australian universities hosting nodes of the Centre (University of Western Australia, University of Adelaide, Melbourne University, Sydney University and University of Queensland), but will normally visit other nodes of the Centre in the course of their stay.

Since the object of the Visiting Fellowships is primarily to promote collaborative research, the Visiting Fellows will not be required to undertake any undergraduate teaching, but will be required to deliver at least one paper or lecture, and might run graduate masterclasses, attend seminars and symposia or deliver other papers. The Fellowship will fund the Visiting Fellow’s return airfare to Australia, accommodation in Australia, and travel between Australian nodes of the Centre.  Some living expenses may be negotiated.
CHE is now issuing a call for applications for Distinguished international Visiting Fellowships, to be taken over the period 1 January 2013 to December 2014.

Applicants should provide:

  1. 1. An up-to-date academic CV.
  2. 2. A description, no longer than one A4 page, of the proposed research to be undertaken during the Fellowship, including a statement of how the research relates to the Centre’s overall research into the history of emotions in Europe 1100-1800, and the proposed outcomes of the research (eg., part of a monograph draft, draft of an article jointly authored with one or more CHE member(s), development of further research interchange and collaboration programs, and so on). Note: it is expected that ARCCHE support would be acknowledged in any publication deriving from the Fellowship.
  3. 3. The name(s) of CHE staff with whom the applicant wishes to collaborate, the preferred dates of the fellowship, and the preferred ‘home’ university for the duration of the visit.
