James K. Cameron Faculty Fellowship 2016-17
The Institute is pleased to announce a Cameron Faculty Fellowship for the academic year 2016-17. This Fellowship is open to any colleague in a faculty post with research interests in the field of early modern religious history. It covers the cost of accommodation for a semester in St Andrews (in a University-owned apartment) together with the costs of transportation to and from St Andrews from the holder’s normal place of work. The Fellowship carries no teaching duties, though the Fellow is expected to take place in the normal seminar life of the Institute for the duration of his or her stay in St Andrews. The Fellowship may be taken during either semester of the academic year 2016-17 (September to December or February to May).
Candidates should apply by submitting to the Director, Dr Bridget Heal (firstname.lastname@example.org) a curriculum vitae, together with the names of two academic referees and a plan of work for the proposed tenure of the Fellowship. Closing date: 4th December 2015.
On September 15th-17th 2016 the Institute will co-organize a symposium with the Volkswagen Foundation and the German Historical Institute in London. The topic will be ‘The Reformation and its Radical Critiques’. For further details please contact Dr Bridget Heal.
From 30th August – 1st September 2017 the annual conference of the German History Society will take place in St Andrews. The 2017 anniversary will also be marked by a series of public lectures in St Andrews, a Reformation Day service, and, most importantly, a specially brewed Reformation beer. Details to follow…
We are pleased to announce ArtRefo’s virtual exhibition, ‘Rare Reformation Relics’: http://www.refo500.nl/ar/exhibitions/5/rare-reformation-relics.html This exhibition presents less well-known images and objects inspired by Reformation theology and piety from the collections of museums across Europe: Luther’s Coburg bed, for example, shavings from which were said to cure toothache.
