Anthony Whiting Fund for the Study of Intellectual & Cultural History – Emmanuel College Cambridge

The Anthony Whiting Fund supports the study of intellectual and cultural history from the late Middle Ages to the middle of the nineteenth century in the Middle East, Europe and the United Kingdom, and from 1620 to 1861 in the United States of America.

The Fund will award a grant of up to £10,000 to support scholars in the field of intellectual and cultural history whose work is based on published and unpublished primary sources in English as well as other languages.  Areas of interest to the Fund include the transmission, transformation, and use of ideas from one culture to another and the history of a specific theme, event, or movement, but there are no specific subject requirements to be eligible for consideration for an award from the Fund.

Applications are sought from scholars who:

  • hold a PhD in literature, philosophy, history, theology, economics, fine arts, architecture, classics or mathematics
  • have first-rank, peer-reviewed publications in the study of intellectual and cultural history
  • are working towards a peer-reviewed publication
  • do not have a fully funded research position at the time of taking up the award

The successful applicant will:

  • Propose a specific project that can be completed within 6 to 12 months
  • Report on the outcome of the research
  • Be invited to become an Emmanuel College Research Associate if they have no other college affiliation

Application process

Applicants must submit a proposal of up to 1000 words, along with a curriculum vitae and a covering letter, by Monday 15 April 2024 to the Bursary Senior Administrator, Emmanuel College, cjp48@emma.cam.ac.uk.

It is expected that the successful applicant will be in a position to start the research in October 2024.
