ANNOUNCEMENTS

FALL 2017 IAS NEWSLETTER: The Fall 2017 IAS newsletter is now available. This issue features news about travel grants and scholarships, member talks and publications, conference round-ups, information about new books on Italian art, and critics’ calls for regional and international exhibitions taking place during late summer, fall, and early winter 2017. View the newsletter here.

IAS GRANTS AVAILABLE: The Italian Art Society is pleased to announce grants to support travel, research, and publication. See the summaries below, click through to full instructions, or see full listings by following our social media reading our Fall Newsletter.
IAS CONFERENCE TRAVEL GRANT FOR MODERN TOPICS: A minimum of $500 will be provided to subsidize transoceanic travel to present in an IAS-sponsored session on the art or architecture of Italy from the early nineteenth century to the present, at any conference in 2018. This grant has been established to fill the gap caused by 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 international scholars already holding the Ph.D. (or equivalent terminal degree) and must be undertaking transoceanic travel to present at the conference. The deadline is 8 October 2017.
IAS TRAVEL GRANT FOR EMERGING SCHOLARS: Two grants of $500.00 will be available each year to subsidize travel for emerging scholars to present a paper at any conference where the IAS is sponsoring a session on Italian art or architecture from prehistory to the present. The competition is open to Master’s or Ph.D. students or Ph.D. holders within six years of the degree (pre-tenture, non-tenure track, or independent scholars). The deadline is 1 November 2017.
IAS DISSERTATION RESEARCH GRANTS: One grant of up to $1000.00 will be available to subsidize research, travel, or other expenses relating to dissertation research. The competition is open to doctoral students of any nationality who have not received an IAS award in the past two years. The deadline is 10 January 2018.
IAS RESEARCH & PUBLICATION GRANTS: One grant of up to $1000.00 will be available to fund or subsidize a research trip or a publication (e.g., for purchasing image rights or as a publication subvention) on any aspect of Italian art and architecture from prehistory to the present. The competition is open to scholars of any nationality holding the Ph.D. or equivalent terminal degree. The deadline is 10 January 2018.
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. Send submissions and inquiries for all to Awards Committee Chair Christian Kleinbub.
