Announcement

The Yavarhoussen Fund and the INHA are launching the call for the fourth edition of the Yavarhoussen Fellowship in 2024 in order to encourage and consolidate academic research on the history of art in Madagascar from the 19th to the 21st centuries. This research subject is still too incomplete to be widely shared.

Characteristics of the grant

The recipient will receive a monthly grant of 1,000 euros as well as a travel allowance of 5,000 euros for field trips, for a total amount of 17,000 euros.

The recipient will be expected to use the grant during the 12 months following the announcement of his or her selection, in particular to travel, i.e., to study archival and documentary collections, works of art, or, possibly, to meet with living artists, curators, art historians, collectors, etc., in Madagascar and elsewhere in the world, if relevant.

Candidates must propose a research project whose subject will enrich knowledge of the history of art in Madagascar. The grant may be used to finance part of an ongoing research project, but the submitted project may also take other forms: artist monograph, study of a corpus of unpublished or little-known works, archives or photographs. Candidates may also submit a research project on Madagascan heritage held in one or more museums in France, with a view to being included in the project « Des objets aux pratiques: Madagascar dans les collections publiques françaises » run by INHA.

The jury will pay particular attention to the originality of the subject and the realism of the proposed timetable - the project must be carried out within one year of the announcement of the laureate's selection.

Conditions of application

This grant is open to researchers who are at the beginning of their academic career (master's degree, doctorate, post doctorate) and who focus on the history of art in Madagascar during the period from the 19th to the 21st centuries.

Composition of the application file

The application file (in French, English or Malagasy) will include

  1. A letter of motivation addressed to the Director General of INHA and to the Director of the Department of studies and research of INHA;
  2. A résumé;
  3. A detailed research program (5 pages maximum, excluding bibliography) in French, English, or Malagasy, including a summary description of the project, the state of the art, the methodology, and the objective pursued (writing a book, a thesis, an article, etc.), as well as a provisional schedule of the planned research visits (precise indication of sources, collections, works to be seen, artists and personalities to be met, etc.) and an indication of the budget required to carry out this program. The care taken in describing the research program will be decisive. A bibliography with an indication of the sources to be consulted will complete this file;
  4. A certificate of current enrollment in an institution of higher education (master's degree or PhD)
  5. A letter of recommendation from a scientific or artistic personality
