Applications are invited for the Daiches-Manning Fellowship in 18th-Century Scottish Studies, co-sponsored by the Eighteenth-Century Scottish Studies Society (ECSSS), the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies (ASECS), and the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities at the University of Edinburgh (IASH). The fellowship is for two to six months and may be taken at any time of the year when space is available at IASH (summer is particularly recommended).
The Daiches-Manning Fellowship honors David Daiches (1912–2005) and Susan Manning (1953–2013), internationally acclaimed literary scholars who served as Directors of IASH and received ECSSS’s Lifetime Achievement Award for their contributions to eighteenth-century Scottish studies.
The fellowship bursary of US$3000/£1800 (depending on the currency exchange rate) supports research on any aspect of eighteenth-century Scottish studies. In addition, Daiches-Manning Fellows are allocated private offices at IASH and receive library access and the use of other research facilities. Fellows are expected to be resident in Edinburgh throughout the tenure of their fellowships, as members of a community of IASH scholars, and to give at least one seminar on their current research work during their tenure.
The Daiches-Manning Fellowship is open to post-doctoral scholars of all nationalities, in all disciplines, and at all career levels. Fellows must be members of ASECS and ECSSS at the time the funds are awarded.
In the first year of the competition, for fellowship tenures in 2014, the completed application form should be emailed to the Daiches-Manning Fellowship Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org by 15 January 2014. Applicants should ask a minimum of two and a maximum of three referees to email reference letters to the fellowship address by the application deadline. Notification will occur by 15 March 2014.
