Johan Huizinga fellowship for historical research (Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam) – deadline 9 January 2023

The Johan Huizinga Fellowship welcomes outstanding candidates to submit proposals for historical research into objects in the Rijksmuseum collection. This Fellowship offers early career scholars the opportunity to conduct historical research into objects in the Rijksmuseum collection. Candidates are invited to submit a research proposal that draws on these objects as subject material and as sources of historical information. The Johan Huizinga Fellowship is primarily intended for candidates whose focus is on the historical role and symbolic meaning of objects, on material culture or the societal context in which these artifacts were used. Therefore, please note that this fellowship does not welcome proposals with an exclusive art-historical focus (e.g. emphasising artistic style, oeuvres or art techniques).

The Johan Huizinga Fellowship is open to MA graduates, as well as PhD students and post-doctoral candidates. MA Graduate/PhD Fellows are those who have completed their MA degree or whose proposal is embedded in the research plans of their forthcoming PhD dissertation, postdoctoral Fellows must have completed their PhD dissertation and obtained a PhD-degree on the date of application.

The closing date for all applications is 9 January 2023, at 6:00 p.m. (Amsterdam time/CET), but candidates are encouraged to apply at their earliest convenience. All applications must be submitted online and in English, see the full info for the application link.
