Fellowship | Research and Archive Fellowships to address the work of Hans Arp and Sophie Taeuber Arp.

ARP-Fellowships Application Deadline: November 30, 2017 Hans Arp (1886-1966) and Sophie Taeuber-Arp (1889-1943) are among the most remarkable artists of the twentieth century. They galvanized the movements of Dada and Surrealism, and influenced the development of concrete art and organic abstraction. Since 1977 the Stiftung Arp e.V. has overseen the greater part of both artists’ estates. It holds one of the most comprehensive collections of their work and manages most of their written and photographic archives. The Foundation also has an extensive research library, which holds primary literature and catalogues of the work of Sophie Taeuber-Arp and Hans Arp as well as many publications of their broader artistic and cultural context. In 2018, the Stiftung Arp e.V. is awarding up to four research- and archive-fellowships to both junior scholars as well as to established researchers and curators whose work addresses…

Humanities Research Centre Visiting Fellowships 2018 | Australian National University

2018 Theme | Imagining Science and Technology 200 Years after Frankenstein  In 2018, the Humanities Research Centre will be looking at the humanities’ engagement (and failure to engage) with the accelerating fields of science and technology. The questions we will ask concern our understanding and imagining of the implications of our own rapid scientific and technological development. Do we understand the motivation for a billion-dollar medical science industry, for example, one that promises more and more radical forms of genetic engineering? How have artificial intelligence and robotics redefined what it means to be, and to act, human? To what extent is the development of science and technology culturally and ideologically inflected? Does science and technology––should science and technology––contribute to social equity and justice? Where are we in the debate about the mutually abrasive existence of ‘two cultures’? What control do we…
