Modern Greek Studies at UvA provide a friendly, flexible and liberal academic ethos that enables future fellows to organize their research as they see fit.Alexander Kazamias, senior fellow from September 2021 to January 2022 Read the full interview with Alexander Kazamias
The Faculty of Humanities at the University of Amsterdam annually invites applications for two visiting research fellowships in the field of Modern Greek Studies for early-career and more advanced scholars who wish to pursue part of their research at the UvA. The call is open to projects from all disciplines in the humanities and/or social sciences that engage with aspects of Modern Greek culture and/or history. Scholars pursuing comparative projects that may not focus (exclusively) on Greece but situate Modern Greek culture in broader, transnational contexts are also encouraged to apply.
The call for applications is open both for scholars affiliated with other academic institutions (e.g., universities or research institutes) and independent scholars with a Ph.D. For the academic year 2024-2025, 1 fellowship will be offered to an early-career scholar (with a Ph.D. not earlier than 2018) for a period of 5 months, and 1 fellowship will be offered to a more experienced scholar (with a Ph.D. between 2004 and 2018) for a period of 5 months. NB: The selection committee retains the right to offer both fellowships to either early or 2 advanced scholars depending on the quality of the submitted proposals in both categories.
Without a doubt my fellowship at UvA was one of the most rewarding academic experiences I’ve had.Dimitris Soudias, junior fellow from February to June 2022 Read the full interview with Dimitris Soudias
