THE GETTY CENTER FOR THE HISTORY OF ART AND THE HUMANITIES

THE CENTER FELLOWSHIPS

The Center is dedicated to advanced research in the history of art,
broadly defined as an integral part of human history and society.
Its goal is to cross the traditional boundaries imposed on academic
institutions by bringing together international scholars to
reexamine the meaning of art and artifacts within past and present
cultures and to reassess their importance within the full scope of
the humanities and social sciences.  The resources for scholarship,
which include books, manuscripts, prints, drawings, documents, and
photographs, and multidisciplinary with a particular focus on the
history of visual arts in Western civilization.

The Center Fellowships provide support for predoctoral and
postdoctoral scholars whose areas of research complement the
programs and resources of the Center.  The 1995-96 Center
Fellowship committee will consider applicants whose research
examines the theme of the scholar year - the nature and idea of
collecting:  objects and values, social and institutional
practices, display and classification, and the emergence of new
languages and classes of collection.  Applications are welcomed
from scholars in such fields of the humanities and social sciences
as anthropology; cultural, intellectual, and social history; the
history of art, architecture and music' literary criticism and
theory; and philosophy.  Scholars may apply for either a
predoctoral or postdoctoral Fellowship.  The Fellowship category
will be determined, however, by the applicant's degree status at
the beginning of the Fellowship period.
