IAS CONFERENCE TRAVEL GRANT FOR MODERN TOPICS
The Italian Art Society is pleased to announce our second year of competition for the IAS Conference Travel Grant for Modern Topics. A minimum of $500.00 will be available to subsidize transoceanic travel to present a paper in an IAS-sponsored session on Italian art or architecture from the early nineteenth century to the present, at any conference in 2017.
This grant has been established to fill the gap resulting from the IAS-Kress International Travel Grant’s restriction to fund topics up to the early nineteenth century only. To be eligible, applicants must be U.S. or foreign scholars already holding the Ph.D. (or equivalent terminal degree) and must be undertaking transoceanic travel to present at the conference. Applicants for IAS grants must be IAS members at the time of application and upon receipt and use of the award. Members who have received an IAS award in the past two years are not eligible to apply. IAS officers and committee members are not eligible to apply. Please send proposals to Awards Committee Chair Kimberly Dennis.
Deadline for proposals: October 8, 2016.
