The Centre has an established tradition of offering fellowships to scholars external to the university. In recent years, it has been able to fund two fellowships annually (each of up to £2,000). Fellows usually visit the Centre for a month, during which time they are expected to organise an event, and participate in the Centre’s general intellectual culture. The next call will be issued in July 2017.

Visiting Fellowship 2016-17 awarded to

We are very pleased to announce that the following people have been awarded 2016/17 Fellowships – many congratulations to you all.  We were able to make some financial savings and so have been able to award several smaller fellowships for short stays. There was some very stiff competition with more than 30 applicants – thank you to everyone who applied and we hope you will try again next year …

Main Fellowships were awarded to David Bissell from Australian National and Bradley Garrett from Southampton.

Smaller Fellowships were awarded to Martin Emanuel, Uppsala; Jill Ebrey, Manchester, and Nikki Pugh, freelance artist working alongside Chris Donaldson, Lancaster.  All recipients will be supported before and during their visit by members of the CeMoRe Directorate.

We look forward to working with you all …
