The Warburg Institute is dedicated to the interdisciplinary study of the classical tradition – in the sense of those elements in European thought, art and institutions that have evolved out of the cultures of the ancient world. Its Library and Photographic Collection are designed and arranged to encourage research into the processes by which one culture learns from another and by which different fields of thought and art act on each other. They are particularly concerned with continuities between the ancient Mediterranean civilizations and the cultural and intellectual history of post-classical Europe, especially in the period to c. 1800.
The Fellowship is generally for younger scholars and preference will normally be given to those under 35 years of age on 1 October 2005. Candidates may be pre- or postdoctoral but must have completed at least one year?s research on their doctoral dissertation by the time they submit their application for a Fellowship. Postdoctoral candidates, if they are over 35, must normally have been awarded their doctorate within the preceding academic year, i.e. after 1 October 2004; if their doctorate was awarded before this date they should explain the reasons for any interruption in their academic career in a covering letter.
