Grant/Fellowship Listing: Upcoming Call for Applications for Getty Residential Grants
The Getty Research Institute is pleased to announce themes for residential grants and fellowships for pre-docs, post-docs, and scholars at the Getty Center and Villa for the 2024/25 academic year.
Applications will open on July 1, 2023. Applications are due by October 2, 2023.
AFRICAN AMERICAN ART HISTORY INITIATIVE GRANTS
The African American Art History Initiative (AAAHI) will support two fellows to generate new knowledge in the expanding field of African American art history. As part of the larger scholar year cohort, AAAHI Fellows have opportunities to present their research and receive feedback from an interdisciplinary group of peers. While proposals do not have to address the concurrent annual theme, they may highlight any salient intersections with it.
This residential program provides financial support and housing to scholars who are expanding critical inquiry of African American art and its frameworks. Projects that propose engagement with Getty’s growing collections of archival and primary source material related to African American art history—particularly post-World War II—are welcome. However, relevance to Getty holdings is not a project requirement. We invite applications from scholars who focus on African American art and visual culture in all time periods and media and in a broad range of theoretical and methodological traditions. Applicants should indicate how their project would align with AAAHI’s aim to make African American art history more visible to the public and accessible to the scholarly community worldwide.
In this moment of extreme environmental decay and monumental epidemic loss, the Getty Scholars Program invites applications on the pressing topic of extinction and its bearing on the visual arts and cultural heritage. Scholars are asked to contemplate how representational practices are deployed to cope with the precarious survival of plants, animals, and humans; the ever-present specter of species-level extinction and resource exhaustion; and, at the most extreme pole, the brutality of mass atrocity. On another level, atrophy, decay, and obsolescence constitute the temporal dimensions of certain artistic practices, especially as creative approaches, technologies, media, formats, and ideals become outmoded or superseded. The finality of disappearance may also portend a certain amount of hope for rebirth, innovation, or recovery. We invite proposals on these topics from art historians and those from related to disciplines.

Fellowships at the Käte Hamburger Center “Dis:connectivtiy in processes of globalisation“
The Käte Hamburger Center for Advanced Study in the Humanities “Dis:connectivity in processes of globalisation” (global dis:connect) at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) Munich invites applications for fellowships of up to 12 months for the academic year 2022/23.
The Center explores from international and transdisciplinary perspectives the inter-dependent, complex relationship between global interconnectedness, lack of inter-connectedness and disentanglement in historical and contemporary globalisation processes. Scholars from the humanities and social sciences, especially from the fields of history, theatre studies and art history, are invited to apply. The work of the fellows should have a clear connection to the general goals of the Käte Hamburger Center for Advanced Study in the Humanities and deal with at least one of the annu-ally changing focal topics. These are:
• academic year 2022/23: interruptions
• academic year 2023/24: absences
• academic year 2024/25: detours

PARTICIPATION IN AND CONTRIBUTION TO THE CENTER
During your time as a Fellow at the Käte Hamburger Center, you are usually released from your teaching and administrative duties at your home institution and concen-trate on working on your research topic. You are expected to actively participate in the events of the Center, such as the regular lunchtime colloquia or the interdiscipli-nary working groups of the fellows, which play a central role in the exchange at the Center. You are also expected to communicate your research results on one of our publication platforms. Furthermore, there is the possibility to organise an interna-tional workshop on your research topic during your stay or to organise events in co-operation with our partner institutions in the city of Munich.
LMU Munich is one of the leading universities in Europe with a history of over 500 years. It stands for demanding academic education and outstanding research. The
LUDWIG-MAXIMILIANS-UNIVERSITÄT MÜNCHEN SEITE 2 VON 2
Center is centrally located in Munich and is very easy to reach by public transport. It is excellently networked with art and cultural institutions as well as academic institu-tions in the city, both nationally and internationally. As a Fellow at the Center, you will benefit from the many opportunities for interdisciplinary and international ex-change, both with the invited researchers and with the artists who also reside at the Center.
DURATION AND CONDITIONS
Fellowships can be awarded for a period of at least 6 to a maximum of 12 months. It is possible to divide the fellowship into two phases. Please indicate the desired time of your stay in your application. After a successful application, the time and duration of your stay will be agreed upon individually on the basis of this information.
After agreement, the Center will either cover the costs for a teaching substitute at the home institution or pay a stipend. In addition, the costs for the return journey (econ-omy) to Munich will be reimbursed. A fully equipped workplace is provided.
Applications are open to post-doctoral researchers who have already distinguished themselves with outstanding work on the thematic focus of the Center.
In addition to the usual application documents (cover letter, curriculum vitae, list of publications), we ask you to enclose an exposé (approx. 5 pages) with your applica-tion, in which you present your research project in a clear and focused manner and elaborate on its relation to the Käte Hamburger Center for Advanced Study in the Humanities “Dis:connectivity in processes of globalisation” (global dis:connect). In-terdisciplinary connectivity and a link to current (also socio-political) debates are advantageous. The exposé should also include a short work plan for the time of your stay. Please send your complete application documents digitally in a PDF file to Ms Raphaela Loosen (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 19 September 2021.
CONTACT AND FURTHER INFORMATION
For further information on the Center please consult our website at www.globaldisconnect.org or contact the directors Christopher Balme (Theatre Stud-ies, email@example.com), Burcu Dogramaci (Art History, firstname.lastname@example.org) or Ro-land Wenzlhuemer (History, email@example.com).
The next call for applications will take place in a year’s time. However, applications are already possible for the entire period until 2025.
