The Warburg Institute is the premier institute in the world for the study of cultural history and the role of images in culture. Initially concerned with the survival of classical antiquity in Renaissance art, its range swiftly expanded. It is dedicated to the history of ideas, the dissemination and transformations of images in society, and the relationship between images, art and their texts and subtexts, of all epochs and across the globe. As its motto – Mnemosyne – suggests, it has long been concerned with memory and its transformations across cultures. For further details click here.
The Institute is offering a Long-term Fellowship of two or three years tenable from October 2016.
Frances A. Yates Long-Term Fellowship
Dame Frances Yates, who died in 1981, generously bequeathed her residuary estate to found research Fellowships in her name at the Institute. Fellows’ interests may lie in any aspect of cultural and intellectual history but, other things being equal, preference will be given to those whose work is concerned with those areas of the medieval and Renaissance encyclopedia of knowledge to which Dame Frances herself made such distinguished contributions.
Deadline for applications: Friday, 4 December 2015

Brian Hewson Crawford Fellowship
A Research Fellowship has been endowed from the estate of, and in memory of, Dr Brian Hewson Crawford, who graduated from the University of London in 1926. A two-month Fellowship is available for the study of any aspect of the classical tradition. Under the terms of the deed, the Fellowship is open to European scholars other than of British nationality.
Henri Frankfort Fellowship
The late Mrs Enriqueta Frankfort endowed a Research Fellowship in memory of her husband Henri Frankfort, who was Director of the Institute from 1949 to 1954. The Fellowship, which will be for two months, may be held in any of the areas in which Professor Frankfort made his distinguished contributions to scholarship: the intellectual and cultural history of the ancient Near East, with particular reference to society, art, architecture, religion, philosophy and science; the relations between the cultures of Mesopotamia, Egypt and the Aegean, and their influence on later civilizations. The Fellowship is not intended to support archaeological excavation.
Albin Salton Fellowship
The late Mr Albin Salton generously endowed an annual Research Fellowship to enable a career scholar to spend two months at the Warburg Institute pursuing research into cultural contacts between Europe, the East, and the New World in the late medieval, Renaissance and early modern periods. The Fellowship is intended to promote the understanding of those elements of cultural and intellectual history which led to the formation of a new world-view, understood in the broadest cultural, political and socio-economic terms, as Europe began to develop contacts with the world outside Europe, and that world came into contact with Europe.
Grete Sondheimer Fellowship
A Fellowship has generously been endowed by Professor Ernst Sondheimer in memory of his aunt, Grete Sondheimer, who worked in the Kulturwissenschaftliche Bibliothek Warburg in Hamburg and in the Library of the Warburg Institute in London from 1944 to 1947. The two month Fellowship, may be held in any of the areas of interest of the Institute.
Frances A. Yates Fellowships
Dame Frances Yates, who died in 1981, generously bequeathed her residuary estate to found research Fellowships in her name at the Institute.

Proposals for papers are being accepted for “The Politics of Dress and Identity in Eastern Mediterranean Societies, Past and Present” an international symposium organized by the Fitting in/Standing Out project (NWO), Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, the University of Salento (Lecce), and the Allard Pierson Museum (Amsterdam) to be held on 24-26 March 2016, at the Allard Pierson Museum (Amsterdam).
Dress plays an essential role in the presentation of the self and in the perception of the other. Clothing and headgear, as well as accessories, tattoos, and hair styles, overtly state and sometimes more subtly convey information about a person’s social standing, gender, ethnicity, regional background, affiliations, profession, or religious beliefs – in other words, about the particular position (s)he holds, or would like to show as having, at a certain moment in time within a certain group or society. Dress is also part of the negotiation of identity and status; it allows individuals to articulate, or conceal, different identities, whether these are individual or collective, imposed or chosen. Identificational changes – when entering a new phase of life or assuming a new status or role – are often marked by the rejection of certain dress codes and/or the acquisition of new ones. Similarly, transient identities can be expressed through a new or composite dress vocabulary. Although dress is usually perceived, understood, and represented as an unambiguous statement about one’s identity, it is in fact a source of many potential ambiguities. The meanings and symbolic values associated with dress are not only culturally situated; they are also dependent on the time and place, the wearer, and the audience. Moreover, they constantly change over time.
This international symposium takes an interdisciplinary, diachronic, and comparative approach to explore the interplay between dress and identity in the broader Mediterranean basin, with a special focus on Muslim societies and interconnected cultures, in both the past and present. It aims to bring together anthropologists, sociologists, historians, art historians, archaeologists, and scholars of other disciplines working on this subject, using a wide spectrum of methods – from textual to textile analysis. The study of dress and, in particular, of attempts to control the meanings of dress – whether in practice, depictions, or texts – not only has great potential for social and cultural history, but is also crucial to understand sartorial dynamics within contemporary societies. From the sumptuary laws issued in many ancient societies to the contemporary debate on veiling practices among Muslim women, dress is, and has always been, the site of competing discourses, where authority and resistance, and the interests of the community and those of the individual meet. By bridging the gap between different academic fields, this symposium aims to put perceptions of dress in the past and the present into a broader perspective.
The main themes we aim to discuss are:
• How is dress used to reify or challenge community boundaries? How do intersecting identities influence choices in dress?
• How is dress represented in visual and written sources? What is the relation between these and actual dress practices? How do these images and texts contribute to construct, reinforce, or subvert identity categories?
• How do actual garments, depictions of dress, or discourses on dress refer to the past (i.e. religious or cultural traditions) to legitimize the present?
• What role does dress play in the articulation of transient or multiple identities, for example in cases of conversion, migration, or the assumption of a new social status?
• How do political, economic, and cultural connections between the East and the West influence dress? How is exotic dress appropriated locally to negotiate status and identity?
Scholars, PhD candidates, and advanced MA students doing research related to the subject of dress and identity are invited to submit a proposal for the symposium. If application for participation has been successful the following is granted:
Participation in the complete program, including lunches and the conference dinners.
Not included: travel, accommodation expenses, and other meals.
The conference does not offer travel grants, but we can support applications for additional funding sought from third parties such as the Pasold Research Fund (www.pasold.co.uk)
Deadline for application: Monday, 16 November 2015, 24.00 (CET)
This application includes the following:
• a title and an abstract of 300 words (max.)
• a short biography of 50 words (max.)
We intend to publish a selection of the papers presented at the symposium in an edited volume. The deadline for the submission of these articles is: Thursday, 15 September 2016.
The organizing committee: Rosita D’Amora, Tineke Rooijakkers, Bas ter Haar Romeny, Mat Immerzeel, Judith Kindinger, and Alexandra Pleşa
