Scholarships for Transnational Access to Special Collections and Transnational Acces to Archival Documents – call for proposal pdf
ReIReS (Research Infrastructure on Religious Studies) offers scholarships for researchers from the member states of the EU and from the countries associated to Horizon2020 on historical religious studies at fourteen facilities located in outstanding European research centres and universities in Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Germany, and Italy:
École Pratique des Hautes Études, Paris, France: Collections patrimoniales, Collections of papyruses.
École Pratique des Hautes Études, Paris, France: Collections patrimoniales, Ethnographic Collection.
All these centres and libraries grant access to collections of manuscripts, documents and rare books and represent relevant collections of Christian, Jewish and Muslim documents and books which allow studies concerning religious studies and interreligious and interconfessional dialogue throughout history.
Scholars can apply for a transnational access scholarship to consult each of these special collections and libraries (excluding those belonging to the user‘s country) in order to develop innovative and groundbreaking investigations in historical religious studies.
ReIReS grants to users the support for travel (standard economy airfare) and subsistence (accommodation). Users spend typically two weeks at the provider institution, meeting experts and scholars, the curators of the special collections, conservators and restorers.
Users of TASC and TAAD take advantage in dealing with all these materials with the constant tutorial of experts of the host provider who are specialists in the research field for which access has been requested, and who assist and guide the use and interpretation of the data.
