Bodleian Libraries, University of Oxford has opened applications for its Queen Jadwiga Fellowship in Polish Studies. Applicants are invited to submit research topics related to any aspect of Polish culture and history which can be supported with reference to the collections of the Bodleian Libraries, including the Taylorian Library. The Libraries would particularly welcome applications which draw upon resources not readily available elsewhere.
Relevant collections connected with the history and culture of Poland include, for example, but not exclusively, medieval manuscripts, early modern documents, maps and letters, modern archives and the ‘Libri Polonici’ special collection of printed books, mostly of the 16th century. Polish studies at the University of Oxford are represented in the Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages and in the Faculty of Modern History.
Scholarship pursued within the Queen Jadwiga Fellowship in Polish Studies research projects will be formally and informally disseminated through publications, talks and seminars supported by the Centre for Democracy and Peace Building and the Polish Cultural Institute in London.
Applications are welcome from both affiliated and independent scholars pursuing academic research at any postdoctoral level.
Applicants who are current doctoral students should note that:
- you must have submitted your thesis before the deadline for Visiting Fellowships applications
- you must have been awarded the doctorate before taking up the fellowship
Applications are welcome from those pursuing research while employed in a library, museum, archive, or other collection-holding institution.
