terra foundation for american art one-week visiting professorship


One-week Visiting Professorship in the academic years of either 2013-14 or 2014-15


Funding from the Terra Foundation for American Art has enabled the Research Forum to offer a one-week Visiting Professorship in American art pre1980.  This professorship is part of an initiative of the Terra Foundation that aims to internationalise the field of historical American art, building a network of scholarly peers and has been awarded in conjunction with similar professorships at the Freie Universität Berlin and the Institut national d’histoire de l’art in Paris.

This appointment is offered to a scholar of American Art whose work plays a defining role in the disciplines of art history, architectural history or art conservation and who is willing to share his or her research with The Courtauld’s community formally (through lectures and seminars) and informally.  In addition to presenting his or her research the Visiting Professor is expected to meet with graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to discuss their individual projects.

This Professorship is held during either the 2013-14 or 2014-15 academic years, in the alternate year to the twelve-week Visiting Professorship also offered by The Courtauld.

Candidates for the visiting professorships who have held a Terra Foundation for American Art visiting professorship or postdoctoral teaching fellowship at the John F. Kennedy Institute of American Studies, the Institut national d'histoire de l'art, or The Courtauld Institute of Art within the last four years are not considered.

The deadline for expressions of interest was 15 January 2013

The Courtauld Institute of Art promotes equal opportunities.
