The Wolfsonian–FIU Fellowship Program
The Wolfsonian–Florida International University announces its fellowship program for the academic year 2013-14. The program is intended to support research on the museum’s collection, generally for periods of three to four weeks. It is open to holders of masters or doctoral degrees, Ph.D. candidates, and others who have a significant record of professional achievement in relevant fields.
The focus of the Wolfsonian collection is on North American and European decorative arts, propaganda, architecture, and industrial and graphic design from the period 1885–1945. The United States, Great Britain, Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands are the countries most extensively represented. There are also smaller but significant collections of materials from a number of other countries, including Austria, Czechoslovakia, France, Japan, the former Soviet Union, and Hungary. The collection includes works on paper (including posters, prints, and design drawings), furniture, paintings, sculpture, glass, textiles, ceramics, lighting and other appliances, and many other kinds of objects. The Wolfsonian’s library has approximately 50,000 rare books, periodicals, and ephemeral items.
Applicants are encouraged to discuss their project with the museum staff prior to submission to ensure the relevance of their proposals to The Wolfsonian’s collection. For more information, visit the website at http://www.wolfsonian.fiu.edu, call 305-535-2613, or email to https://www.wolfsonian.org/research-library/fellowships. Applications for the 2013–14 academic year must be postmarked by December 31, 2012.
