Appel à candidature « Wolfsonian–FIU Fellowship Program, Wolfsonian-Florida International University, Miami Beach, Florida »

The Wolfsonian–Florida International University announces its fellowship program for 2013-14. The Wolfsonian is a museum and research center in Miami Beach, Florida, USA, that promotes the examination of modern visual and material culture. Its fellowship program is intended to support research on the museum’s collection, generally for periods of three to four weeks. Fellowships include a stipend, accommodations, and round-trip travel. The timing of dates will be negotiated with individual awardees. The program is open to holders of master’s or doctoral degrees, Ph.D. candidates, and to others who have a significant record of professional achievement in relevant fields. Scholars from outside of the United States are eligible.

The focus of the Wolfsonian collection is on North American and European decorative arts, propaganda, architecture, and industrial and
graphic design from the period 1885–1945. The United States, Great Britain, Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands are the countries most
extensively represented. There are also smaller but significant collections of materials from a number of other countries, including Austria, Czechoslovakia, France, Japan, the former Soviet Union, and Hungary. The collection includes works on paper (including posters, prints, and design drawings), furniture, paintings, sculpture, glass, textiles, ceramics, lighting and other appliances, and many other kinds of objects. The Wolfsonian’s library has approximately 50,000 rare books, periodicals, and ephemeral items.

The annual deadline is December 31 for a residency beginning no earlier than July 1 of the following year. Applicants are encouraged to discuss their project with the museum staff prior to submission to ensure the relevance of their proposals to The Wolfsonian’s collection.
