Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain.

Support Description: Call for applications for John Carter Brown Library Research Fellowships 2014-2015

The John Carter Brown Library (JCB), an independently funded institution for advanced research in the history and culture of the Americas on the campus of Brown University, will award approximately forty residential fellowships for the year July 1, 2014, to June 30, 2015. The Library contains one of the world’s premier collections of primary materials related to the discovery, exploration, and settlement of the New World, from Greenland to Patagonia, to 1825, including books, maps, newspapers, and other printed objects. JCB Fellowships are open to scholars working on all aspects of the Americas in the early modern period.

Short-term Fellowships are for two to four months with a monthly stipend of $2,100. Open to U.S. and foreign citizens who are engaged in pre- or post-doctoral, or independent, research. Graduate students must have passed their preliminary or general examinations at the time of application.

Long-Term Fellowships are for five to ten months with a monthly stipend of $4,200. These include NEH Fellowships, for which an applicant must be a U.S. citizen or have lived in the U.S. for the three years preceding the application deadline. For other long-term fellowships, all nationalities are eligible. Graduate students may not hold JCB Long-Term Fellowships. PhD candidates are welcome to apply for long-term fellowships if all degree requirements, including the successful defense of their dissertation, have been met by the December 15 deadline.

Recipients of all fellowships must relocate to Providence and be in continuous residence at the JCB for the full term of the award. Rooms are available for rent at Fiering House, the JCB Fellows’ residence, a beautifully restored 1869 house just four blocks from the Library.

The deadline for both short- and long-term fellowships is December 15, 2013.
