By Maria Montt Strabucchi • • 21 Feb 2017

The Trustees and Executive Committees of the Association of Hispanists of Great Britain and Ireland (AHGBI) and Women in Spanish, Portuguese, and Latin-American Studies (WISPS) invite applications for the 2017-18 Dorothy Sherman-Severin Research Fellowship for Early-Career Researchers in Luso-Hispanic Studies.

The Fellowship was established in 2006 and first awarded in 2007. It is designed to address the needs of talented UK- or Irish-based early-career researchers in Luso-Hispanic Studies (broadly understood) who plan on pursuing an academic career in this area, and who, for whatever reason, are finding it difficult to consolidate and develop their research potential.

Application deadline for 2017-2018: Monday, 2 July 2018
