A four-year Cambridge Post-doctoral fellowship in Art as a Source of Knowledge

Visitors to this site would be interested to know that Churchill College, Cambridge, has advertised a new post-doctoral fellowship:

Jeffrey Rubinoff Fellowship in Art as a Source of Knowledge

Churchill College, Cambridge

Churchill College, Cambridge

A new four-year research fellowship at Churchill College for early career postdoctoral researchers working in the field of Art as a Source of Knowledge, with a focus on the visual arts.

Human interaction with art, whether as creators, commissioners or receivers, by its nature engages the senses, the intellect and the emotions. From it we learn about ourselves, about the physical, social and intellectual world around us, and about wider society and other societies, in terms of culture, ideas, politics, religion and economics. It can be a window into other worlds, otherwise hidden from us. It provides perspective. It teaches us things of which we were scarcely aware, or even completely unaware.

Further details are available on the Churchill website: https://www.chu.cam.ac.uk/about/master-fellows/junior-research-fellowships/jeffrey-rubinoff-fellowship/

And the application is through the Churchill JRF scheme (deadline 16 November 2014): https://www.chu.cam.ac.uk/about/master-fellows/junior-research-fellowships/
