Warwick PhD and Early Career Research Fellowships - Funding opportunity to visit the Newberry Library - (Jan 2022-June 2022)

The Humanities Research Centre will fund 1 internal fellowship, worth £2,000, for a Warwick PhD student or early career scholar wanting to conduct a short period of research at the Newberry Library. This fellowship is intended to support a trip of 2-3 weeks that will deepen and broaden research links and/or further individual research projects in archives and collections. Applicants are responsible for arranging travel, itineraries, and accommodation, although we can provide support and assistance in these areas. We encourage applicants to seek out contacts in advance of their applications and to provide details of these in their material (you do not need to provide written references). Your trip must be more than simply presenting a paper at a conference, and you must clearly demonstrate the potential benefits to Warwick in your application.

Warwick-based applicants

We invite current Warwick doctoral students AND Warwick early career scholars (up to 5 years post PhD) within the Arts Faculty and Philosophy to apply for:

  • One fellowship jointly funded by the HRC and the Centre for the Study of the Renaissance to support any area of study at the Newberry Library in Chicago. To be used in the 2021-2022 university financial year (for trips planned to take place from January 2022-June 2022). Applicants should familiarise themselves with the library’s collections and make clear how they intend to use them.

How to apply:

Applicants should complete the online Application Form - Warwick PhD and Early Career Research Fellowships and include with their application a 1–2-page detailed description of the research they want to pursue.

You must make it clear that you have contacted an academic at the Newberry Library and outline the potential collaborations and benefits to Warwick that this visit would have.

If you require further information, please email the Director, Professor David Lambert -

Application deadline - Monday 8th November - applications received after this deadline cannot be considered.

Please ensure that the attachment requested on the form is a word document with a MAXIMUM of 2 pages.

Publications with Routledge and Anthem Press

The HRC now has two book series showcasing the best current work in the faculty.

Warwick Series in the Humanities (with Routledge)

This series will publish the varied and multidisciplinary outcomes of the projects funded by the HRC.

We hope those receiving funding from the HRC (including doctoral fellowship conferences) will seriously consider publication in this series. In addition, the Series will accept proposals from the Faculty community in general, with the proviso that any such proposals are interdisciplinary.

Warwick Studies (with Anthem Press)

This is a new series that partners the HRC with Anthem Press, a small independent publisher offering a high quality list aimed at the academic community. Unlike the Warwick Series in the Humanities which is explicitly inter-disciplinary, the Warwick Studies will have more of a discipline-specific focus, and thus will be marketed as Warwick Studies in Literature, Warwick Studies in History etc.
