This one-year fellowship is part of The Met’s History of Art and Visual Culture Fellowship program and is intended as an independent research project.
The fellowship encourages cross-departmental projects that explore connections between various cultures and collections in the Museum and that go beyond traditional boundaries, bridging the visual arts and other disciplines in the humanities, social sciences, performing arts, and fine arts. Fellows may explore connections between public practice, education, and the humanities, relating but not limited to curriculum development, gallery teaching, and interpretation. The project should relate to and make use of the Museum’s resources, including its collections, libraries, archives, and programs.
Fellows are offered a salary and travel stipend.
The fellowship is open to candidates holding either an MA or MFA, or currently pursuing or holding a PhD in the arts, humanities, or social sciences. Eligible fields may include but are not limited to anthropology, archaeology, history, literature, medicine, philosophy, psychology, political science, ethnic studies, sociology, gender studies, religion, education, film studies, and performance (music, dance, theater, etc.).
All fellowships must take place between September and August. Applications typically close in November. Candidates will be notified by February.
