WHEN / WHERE
Early stage researchers are invited to apply. The deadline for applications is set for the 30th December 2019.
The Wolfsonian’s collection—among the largest university art collections in the country—focuses on North American and European art, propaganda, architecture, and industrial and graphic design dating from 1850 to 1950. The United States, Great Britain, Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands are the countries most extensively represented in the collection, with a smaller but significant number of materials from Austria, Czechoslovakia, France, Japan, the former Soviet Union, Hungary, and more. With over 200,000 objects, the collection includes books, emphema, and archives from The Wolfsonian Library; works on paper (posters, prints, design drawings, and more); fine art (paintings and sculpture); decorative art (glass, textiles, ceramics, lighting); appliances; and beyond.
Offering an annual fellowship program, short-term visits from scholars, and an ever-growing online catalog of digitized objects, The Wolfsonian is a valuable resource for researchers around the world.
Scholars wishing to conduct research at The Wolfsonian are encouraged to apply to our fellowship program, which accommodates on-site study for periods of up to one month. For information on shorter-term research visits, email firstname.lastname@example.org; if you are a student or faculty member at Florida International University, contact email@example.com.
The museum’s digital image catalog, accessible to all online and continually expanding, contains thousands of records for Wolfsonian objects. Browse by keyword, country of origin, creator, subject, and more, and check back frequently for new entries.
Since its inception in 1995, our fellowship program has supported projects from a wide range of academic fields to promote scholarly research on The Wolfsonian’s collection. Fellowships are awarded for full-time research at the museum, generally for periods of 3–4 weeks.
