Distinguished International Visiting Fellowships Program

Distinguished International Visiting Fellowships Program

Applications close 15 December 2019.


Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions
Distinguished International Visiting Fellowships Program

As part of its international research collaboration, ARC CHE will fund outstanding international scholars in the field to visit Australian universities and to work with members of the Centre on a research program of their choice for a period of up to one month. The Distinguished Visiting Fellow will be based at The University of Western Australia node of CHE. Travel to other universities that have CHE nodes is highly encouraged, but financial support from CHE for this purpose is contingent on funding availability. For more information on the Centre’s research activities across Australia, see our website: http://www.historyofemotions.org.au/

Since the object of the Visiting Fellowships is primarily to promote collaborative research, the Visiting Fellows will not be required to undertake any undergraduate teaching, but will be required to deliver at least one paper or lecture, and might run graduate masterclasses, attend seminars and symposia or deliver other papers.

The Fellowship will fund the Visiting Fellow’s return airfare to Australia (economy), accommodation on campus (or private, e.g. Airbnb) up to a maximum of $180 per night, access to an office, UWA’s libraries, and a convivial community of researchers.

ARC CHE is now issuing a call for applications for Distinguished International Visiting Fellowships, to be taken over the period 1 January 2020 to 31 December 2021.

Applicants should provide:

  1. An up-to-date academic CV;
  2. A description, no longer than one A4 page, of the proposed research to be undertaken during the Fellowship, including a statement of how the research relates to the Centre’s overall research into the history of emotions, and the proposed outcomes of the research (e.g., part of a monograph draft, draft of an article jointly authored with one or more CHE member(s), development of further research interchange and collaboration programs, and so on). Note: it is expected that ARC CHE support would be acknowledged in any publication deriving from the Fellowship.
  3. The name(s) of CHE staff with whom the applicant wishes to collaborate, the preferred dates of the fellowship, a list of all the CHE Nodes that will be visited during the duration of the stay.
