Ouseley Short-Term Research Fellowship

Closing Date: 04/12/2023

Funding is provided to enable scholars around the world to undertake a period of research on Arabic, Persian, Hindustani, and other Oriental languages at The Warburg Institute in London.

The Warburg Institute is a research institution within the University of London that focusses on the study of cultural history, particularly in the context of studying the interaction of ideas, images, and society. The Institute is dedicated to the survival and transmission of culture across time and space, with special emphasis on the afterlife of antiquity.

The Institute provides this fellowship to enable scholars to carry out an Arabic and/or Persian language research project at the Warburg Institute for a period of three months. The award aims to provide financial support towards living and subsistence costs in London.

The institute is looking for research projects firmly grounded in sources written in Arabic and/or Persian. Preferentially, projects should encompass areas such as art, science, philosophy, religion and especially the transmission of ideas between cultures. Projects are expected to cover original research on the applicant’s chosen topic.

Fellowships are tenable at the Warburg Institute and begin in September 2024. Fellows must hold at least three-quarters of their award during term-time.
