Winterthur Research Fellowship Program
Application Deadline: January 15, 2021
Winterthur offers unparalleled access to a wealth of museum, garden, and library collections supporting material culture research. As an interdisciplinary center for collections-based scholarship and conservation, Winterthur encourages researchers to explore and immerse themselves in holistic and intimate inquiry from a wide range of disciplines.
Academic, independent, and museum scholars as well as advanced graduate students are invited to apply for short-term (two- to six-week) and long-term (four- to eight-month) residential research fellowships that can be used between June 1, 2021, and August 31, 2022. We welcome new and critical approaches to a broad range of scholarly topics, including: material culture studies, social and cultural history, art history, literary studies, American studies, design history, the decorative arts, landscape architecture and design, consumer culture, and conservation studies covering global topics from the 17th to the 20th centuries. We also support fellowships designed for artists, writers, filmmakers, horticulturalists, craftspeople, and others who wish to examine, study, and immerse themselves in Winterthur’s vast collections in order to inspire creative and artistic works for general, non-academic audiences.
