The Getty Research Institute and the Getty Villa invite proposals for the 2016–2017 academic year residential grants and fellowships (see attached posters).

The Getty Research Institute theme, “Art and Anthropology,” explores the intensifying rapprochement between art history and anthropology. As these two disciplines adapt to the analysis of the cultural production of art and material culture from around the world, this process challenges both the canons of art and the methodologies in the different fields of art history. The Getty solicits applications that address both past and present relationships among the disciplines of art history and anthropology as well as archaeology.

The Getty Villa theme, “The Classical World in Context: Egypt,” renews its focus on the relations between the cultures of the classical world and Egypt from prehistory to the coming of Islam. Priority will be given to research projects that are cross-cultural and interdisciplinary, utilizing a wide range of archaeological, textual, anthropological, and other evidence.
