Open Call: MACK Annual Research Fellowship

Intro

MACK Annual Research Fellowship

We are pleased to announce our new annual research fellowship, in which we invite proposals for books that investigate an area of cultural history which is deserving of and lacking in critical attention. 

We are especially interested in projects that include, but are not limited to, untold historic lineages, overlooked collectives and communities, specific movements of activism and collaboration, and artists who work in the intersection of art, photography and literature in new ways. The successful candidate will research, edit, write the primary text for, and manage the production of a book on the subject to be published by MACK.

The role can be adapted to the work and life commitments of the successful candidate, but we anticipate that it will either involve an estimated 2 days a week commitment over a 6-month period, or a block of approximately 40 – 50 days within an agreed time frame. The successful applicant will receive a fee of £8,000 plus funding for agreed costs. 

Applicants should send a covering letter with their CV and the names of two referees to fellowship@mackbooks.co.uk by no later than 20 January 2022, outlining their proposed research project (including key thesis, figures, events, movements and so on), together with relevant past research and proven track record in no more than two A4 pages maximum. Successful candidates will be invited for an interview.
