The Charles and Joan Alberto Institute at Seton Hall University is pleased to announce the availability of one Visiting Fellowship for the Fall semester of the 2018-19 academic year. This fellowship aims at providing young scholars in Italian Studies with the opportunity to live and do research for a period up to one month in the New York/New Jersey area and to be part of the Italian Studies community at Seton Hall University. We welcome candidates from any countries and specializing in any area of Italian Studies. Applicants pursuing a research project related to the Italian Renaissance or to the history of Italian Americans are particularly encouraged to apply.
Seton Hall University is located in South Orange, NJ, not far from major libraries in New York City and Princeton University. During his or her visit, the selected candidate will be asked to give a public lecture at the Alberto Institute, two lectures to undergraduate students, and participate to the life of our Italian Studies Program. The fellowship will cover both travel and lodging expenses (flight or train transportation from the city/country of origin and housing for one month) and will provide office space in the Walsh library, which is the home of the Valente Collection, the second largest Italian Studies book collection in New Jersey.
Applications should be sent to Dr. Gabriella Romani, Director of the Alberto Italian Studies Institute at firstname.lastname@example.org by April 1st, 2018. A selection of finalists will be contacted for an informal interview (by phone or skype) and the final candidate will be announced by the beginning of May 2018.
