I Tatti – The Harvard University Center for Italian Renaissance Studies ,in cooperation with the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, is offering a Fellowship in the Digital Humanities to support the work of scholars in the humanities or social sciences, librarians, archivists, and data science professionals whose research interests or practice cut across traditional disciplinary boundaries and actively employ technology in their work.

About the Fellowship:-

  • This is a residential fellowship of 4 or 6 months in length.  Up to two fellowships will be awarded every year.
  • Projects can address any aspect of the Italian Renaissance, broadly understood historically to include the period from the 14th to the 17th century, and geographically to include transnational dialogues between Italy and other cultures (e.g. Latin American, Mediterranean, African, Asian, etc.). 
  • Projects should apply digital technologies such as mapping, textual analysis, visualization, or the semantic web to topics in fields such as art and architecture, history, literature, material culture, music, philosophy, religion, and the history of science.

Eligibility:-

  • Applicants must be conversant in English and have familiarity with Italian. 

  • At the time of application, a PhD is required for scholars in the humanities and social sciences.

  • Master’s degree is required for librarians, archivists, and data science professionals. 

  • A background in programming, library sciences, computer graphics, computational linguistics, or other fields relevant to digital humanities research is highly desirable. 

  • Candidates should possess the technical skills to carry out their project at the time of application, and it must be possible for applicants to carry out most of their research in Florence.

  • Priority will be given to early and mid-career scholars. 

  • I Tatti welcomes applications from scholars from all nations and gives special consideration to candidates without regular access to research materials and facilities in Italy. 

  • Applications are evaluated by international scholars. The selection committee aims to assess the ability of candidates to contribute in a collegial way to the intellectual life of the Harvard Center. 

  • It pays special attention to the strength of the proposed project and its potential to yield original results, and to the candidate’s curriculum vitae.

Terms and Conditions:-

  • The stipend is USD 4,200 per month, plus a one-time supplement (maximum USD 1,500) towards relocation expenses. 

  • In light of the residential nature of the fellowship, fellows must live in the Florence area and spend at least three days a week at the center. 

  • When possible, a one-bedroom apartment will be set aside for the Fellow’s use, rent free, but with charges for utilities. If an apartment is not available, a housing subsidy will be offered to help offset rental costs.

  • Applicants should indicate their preference between fall (September through December) and winter-spring (January through June). 

  • Fellows enjoy all the privileges of the Harvard Center, including use of the Biblioteca Berenson seven days a week and lunch with other Appointees from Monday through Friday. 

  • Short-term Fellows do not receive an office or study, but they will have their own desk or carrel in the Library itself.

  • Fellows may not take on any other obligations such as teaching positions, even part-time ones, during any part of their Fellowship period.

  • The Fellow is responsible for obtaining a visa, permesso di soggiorno, and health coverage (and, if appropriate, for accompanying family members). 

  • The Fellow must determine if a visa is required and, if necessary, obtain one before travel.
