Ahmanson-Getty Postdoctoral Fellowships at UCLA's William Andrews Clark Memorial Library
This theme-based resident fellowship program, established with the support of the Ahmanson Foundation of Los Angeles and the J. Paul Getty Trust, is designed to encourage the participation of junior scholars in the Center's yearlong core programs.
The core program for the academic year 2014–2015 will be:
Explorations, Encounters, and the Circulation of Knowledge, 1600–1830
Directed by Adriana Craciun (UC Riverside) and Mary Terrall (UCLA)
The circulation of knowledge, objects, and people has attracted scholarly attention in recent years from a variety of disciplines. The core program for 2014–15 will draw on several strands of this scholarship to examine how knowledge was shaped by long-distance voyages and encounters in the global seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. We are particularly interested in the possibilities of transcultural analyses that explore how knowledge and culture were transformed by the entanglements of voyagers and locals, in Europe and beyond. The program will bring together scholars of the history of science, art history, literature, anthropology, geography, maritime history, and material texts to discuss new approaches to these questions.
