Institute of Classical Studies In this section

The T. B. L. Webster Fellowship was inaugurated in 1999. Professor E. J. Jory (Western Australia) was appointed as the first Webster Fellow. The Fellowship is awarded to scholars from universities outside the UK whose research interests are in ancient theatre and performance and its reception OR in classical art and archaeology. The successful candidate is expected to spend a minimum of six weeks at the Institute. Applicants are invited to make a proposal for an event or training activity to be carried out at the ICS during their stay. Proposals for events or activities that engage with UK-based classical researchers and/or the national and international subject community are particularly welcome. Fellows receive an allowance of £5000 toward the cost of travel and accommodation.

A list of previous holders of the Webster Fellowship is available here.

Following a period of suspension during the COVID-19 pandemic, applications are once again invited for this Fellowship for the academic year 2023-24.

Applicants are asked to complete the application form and to send it to the Director with a short CV (4 pages maximum). The deadline for applications will be 14th April.  It is expected that results will be announced before the end of May. Successful candidates are encouraged to speak at events or participate in workshops elsewhere in the UK if invited, and some funds are available to make this possible.
