Gerda Henkel Fellowship - call for applications

09 Jan 2015

We are delighted to announce the call for applications for a place on the Journalism Fellowship Programme sponsored by the Gerda Henkel Foundation.Applicants are welcomed from anywhere in the world, but must have a minimum of five years’ experience in any branch of journalism and good spoken and written English. Fellows enjoy an opportunity to critically reflect upon their profession, to research a subject of their choice under the supervision of an academic specialising in that area, and to enjoy the breadth of academic, cultural and social life at the University of Oxford. The successful Gerda Henkel Fellow will carry out research in the field of Historical Humanities, particularly in Art History, Modern and Ancient History, Legal History or Islamic History. Within these areas, participants can freely choose their research topic, although it should ideally be connected with their professional activity. This is not a degree programme but fellows are expected to write a substantial piece of research of publishable quality. The deadline for receipt of applications is 30th January 2015.
