An announcement forwarded to Museum Anthropology by Michael F. Williams:
2010–2011 Clark-Oakley Fellowship
The Oakley Center for the Humanities & Social Sciences, Williams College, and the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, a center for research and higher education as well as a public art museum, jointly offer a fellowship for national and international scholars, critics, and museum professionals who are engaged in projects that enhance the understanding of the visual arts and their role in culture. The Clark/Oakley Fellowship is an academic year appointment for a scholar in the humanities whose study addresses some aspect of the visual.
Clark/Oakley Fellows receive stipends, dependent on sabbatical and salary replacement needs, reimbursement for travel expenses, and local housing. Williamstown is located in a rural setting in the Berkshire Hills of western Massachusetts. Both Boston and New York City are about three hours away by car. Photos and more details of the Scholars’ Residence are available at clarkart.edu/research.
Applications are invited from scholars with a Ph.D. or equivalent professional experience in universities, museums, and related institutions. Because of the highly competitive nature of the fellowship competition, we do not normally award fellowships to scholars whose dissertations are only recently completed. For full fellowship guidelines and an application form, as well as further information, please visit clarkart.edu/research or williams.edu/resources/oakley/fellowships.htm. The application deadline for fellowships awarded for the 2010–2011 year is November 2, 2009.
