Bard Graduate Center is delighted to welcome a new cohort of fellows to West 86th Street. We count among them an artist who works with clay in various states of permanency as well as other materials; a Paleolithic archaeologist; an archaeologist who specializes in Roman and late antique art and architecture in the provinces of Syria-Palestine; an interior designer and maker of textiles; and two historians: one who researches the cultural history of the early modern Americas and another who studies the daily lives and material culture of ancient Jews from different areas of the Mediterranean, Arabia, and Mesopotamia. Their presence will enrich the scholarly life of the institution throughout the spring semester. Please click on the links below to learn more about each of them.

Bard Graduate Center, a member of the Association of Research Institutes in Art History, offers Fields of the Future Fellowships and Visiting Fellowships each year.

Fields of the Future Fellowships promote diversity and inclusion in the advanced study of the material world. They reflect BGC’s commitment to explore and expand the sources, techniques, voices, and questions of interdisciplinary humanities scholarship, and they provide funds for collections-based research at Bard Graduate Center or elsewhere in New York City, as well as writing, reading, and creative projects in which being part of our dynamic research environment is intellectually valuable. The next application cycle takes place in fall 2023.

Visiting Fellowships are non-stipendiary opportunities that provide workspace and the opportunity for scholars from university, museum, and independent backgrounds with a PhD or equivalent professional experience to join the dynamic intellectual community at BGC. Applications for 2023–24 are due March 1, 2023.
