Presentation

The Institut national d'histoire de l'art (INHA) in Paris is a public research institute and a public research library specifically dedicated to art history. For 2019, the INHA launches a new call for three 3-months grants for art historians from the following regions: Eastern Europe, Africa, the Middle East, India and South-East Asia. The purpose of the program is to promote national and international exchanges, especially in its fields ("Domaines") and programs. For the grantees, it should offer the opportunity to carry out research requiring the consultation of sources in Paris or France and to set up network with researchers at INHA or nationwide in France. Special collaboration with INHA scholars on topics related to the research programs or to the special collections of the Library would be ideal. Priority will be given to confirmed art history researchers, whether they are affiliated with an institution (university, museum, research institute, etc.) or independent.

Circa 20 research programs will be running during the academic year 2018-2019, with topics ranging from Ancient to contemporary art (follow the link).
