Visiting Scholarships “Visualizations and Material Cultures of the Heavens in Eurasia and North Africa”

The Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, Berlin, offers several Visiting Scholarships (residential, 3–12 months) to take place in the period September 1, 2021 to August 31, 2023.

We invite scholars to apply for participation in the Working Group "Visualizations and Material Cultures of the Heavens in Eurasia and North Africa (4000 BCE–1700 CE)" of Department III. The Working Group’s research focuses on visual representations and material objects in the creation, change, and movement of astral knowledge across space and time.
We welcome applications from scholars in every field within history, history of science and technology, art history, archaeology, philology, cultural history, religious studies, or museum studies, with a focus on visual representations or objects and some preference for research addressing the multilingual and transregional nature of the project. Candidates of all nationalities are encouraged to apply.

Visiting scholars receive a stipend commensurate with rank and experience for their period of residence, and reimbursement for a return ticket to and from their place of residence.
