Scholarship Description: Applications are invited for Byzantine Studies Fellowship for a nine-month Postdoctoral Fellowship in Byzantine Studies. Fellowship is available for international students.
This fellowship is designed for junior scholars with a completed doctorate whose research deals with some aspect of the Byzantine world.
Meet Us in the Middle Ages: The Crossroads of Everything. Medieval people made the modern world. Greek, Arab, and Latin natural philosophers built our scientific tradition. European poets and story-tellers invented vernacular literature while reading classical poetry and Middle-Eastern frame tales. Rabbis, priests, and imams—as they talked, and squabbled, with each other—constructed our religious traditions. Our representative democracies and university systems are essentially medieval institutions.
Degree Level: Fellowship is available to pursue Postdoctoral programme.
Available Subject: Fellowship is awarded in the field of Byzantine Studies.
