Visiting Fellowship Programme in the History of Knowledge 2023

In 2019, we launched the Visiting Fellowship Programme in the History of Knowledge. The intention was to invite international scholars to join us in Lund, but unfortunately the global pandemic made it impossible for several years. We are therefore very happy to relaunch our Visiting Programme at the Lund Centre for the History of Knowledge (LUCK).

The Visiting Fellowship Programme

We award short-term fellowships to scholars to pursue research in the history of knowledge at our research environment at Lund. We welcome applications from both junior and senior scholars, but we are particularly dedicated to support the research of promising international postdoctoral/early career scholars with an ambition and a capacity to develop the history of knowledge.

We invite scholars to join us at LUCK during a period of 1 to 2 weeks between 13 and 26 March, 2023. The scholars will have the opportunity to present their ongoing research and interact with the historians of knowledge at Lund.

The fellowship covers travel costs and accommodation in Lund during a period of maximum 2 weeks.

The Visiting Fellowship Programme in the History of Knowledge is a part of Johan Östling’s Wallenberg Academy Fellowship. It is funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation as well as the Department of History and the Joint Faculties of Humanities and Theology, Lund University.
