Call for Application: Post-Doctoral Research and Teaching Fellowship in Paris – TERRA Foundation

Application Deadline: February 22, 2022

A Post-Doctoral specialist in American art spends two years in Paris and teaches Visual Culture seminars open to students from the Masters programs at Université de Paris and Paris-Nanterre.

Larca enjoys a close partnership with the Terra Foundation for American Art. Based in Chicago, the Foundation fosters the study and promotion of American art through exhibitions, study programmes and international exchanges between researchers, students and curators.

The Foundation endows a Research and Teaching Fellowship, enabling a young researcher specializing in American Art to live in Paris for two years (2022-24) and teach a seminar on American visual culture, open to Master students from our Visual Culture department and from the Art History department at Paris-Nanterre University.

Endowed by a generous grant of the Terra Foundation, this two-year research and teaching fellowship in Paris offers a postdoctoral scholar the opportunity to pursue their own work, and teach at Université de Paris (ex-Diderot) and Université de Paris-Nanterre. The fellow will receive a $ 42,000 annual stipend (to cover all costs including travel, housing, visa, health insurance, research, and so on; to be disbursed in euros).

In addition, the program also includes a $ 2,000 annual fund towards the organization of scientific events.

Each fall in the 24-months period (2022–24) the Fellowship recipient will teach (in English) a seminar in American art history and visual culture to graduate students specializing in art history (Paris Nanterre) and American visual and cultural studies (Université de Paris).

S/he will conduct personal research in conjunction with the Art History and Visual Culture research teams of the two partner universities.


Our objects of study range from painting or photography, public sculpture and other
ways of memorializing history,to installation or performance art, via the study of moving images (film
studies and TV series studies) as well as experimental cinema and film adaptation.
The group’s focus on English-language cultures implies that researchers pay great attention to the
interactions between image, visual practices and their theorisation, the import of traditions and
artistic references specific to English-language contexts, the interaction of such traditions with
contemporary creative trends,the rich legacy and liveliness of a specific philosophical and theoretical
tradition and their links to more recent societal debates.
