1250-1750 by fostering and encouraging cross-disciplinary cooperation, notably among African academics and those working in European and North American institutions.
The fellowship provides a ten-month position in Italy for post-doctoral academics focusing on African studies (or related themes) to pursue historical research with the assistance of two institutions with vibrant academic communities.
