**Deadline Approaching** BSR Awards for Research in the Humanities and Social Sciences 2019-20

Applications are invited for a number of residencies, suitable for early career scholars (at postgraduate and in particular early post-doctoral level), and for established scholars in the humanities and social sciences, who can demonstrate a need to be in Rome to undertake their research. They are for research on any aspect of the social, religious, political and economic cultures of the Italian peninsula, and their wider textual, visual and material dissemination and reception, from prehistory to the modern period. These awards offer membership of a vibrant multidisciplinary research community, a varied and international events programme, accommodation in our residence, food, 24-hour access to our historic library collection and, for most early career scholars, a research grant. They are tenable for three or nine months.



‘I estimate that I could accomplish in a day in the BSR Library what otherwise might have taken me three weeks to a month’

‘I found the interesting conversations at the BSR its most valuable asset and I was inspired by a number of scholars and artists to look at the topics of my own research from a new perspective’

‘The stay at the BSR was invaluable for allowing access to the many archival resources available in Rome, and some elsewhere … Due to the excellence of the libraries of the national academies based in Rome there is a great deal of foreign literature not found in Britain which can give a much wider scope to research’
