Kingdon Fellowships

University of Wisconsin - Institute for Research in the Humanities

Robert M. Kingdon, a distinguished historian of early modern Europe, generously donated funds for two to three Kingdon Fellowships to scholars outside UW-Madison who are engaged in historical, literary, and philosophical studies of Judeo-Christian religious traditions and their role in society from antiquity to the present, broadly understood. Projects may focus on any period from antiquity to the present, on any part of the world, and in any field(s) in the humanities; can range widely or focus on a particular issue; and can explore various forms of Jewish and/or Christian traditions; the interaction of one or both of these religious traditions with other religious traditions; and/or the relationship of one or both of these religious traditions to other aspects of society such as power, politics, culture, experience, creativity, nationality, cosmopolitanism, gender, and sexuality. Projects that incorporate consideration of religion's interaction with society are especially welcome.
