The Museum Wilhelm Busch – Deutsches Museum für Karikatur und Zeichenkunst holds a comprehensive collection of the extensive work of Wilhelm Busch. The Museum is also dedicated to its growing, and important, collection of caricature and offers the entire range of this art, since its beginning around 1600 to the present day.
The Museum is now offering a fellowship of four weeks, in the period from September to mid-December 2020, for humanities and cultural scholars. Their own project should be well advanced, will have a defined relation to the collection of the Museum, and will have its focus on (historical) caricature of Western Europe, from the 18th to the beginning of the 20th century. At the end of the fellowship, a summary of the research work, for example in form of a lecture or a written report, would be appreciated.
The Museum offers:
- A workstation in their offices.
- A small furnished apartment.
- Travel expenses from your home to Hannover, up to 1500 €.
- The fixed sum of 1500 € for your daily expenses, including public transport.
- Academic support.
