Applications Open: The Paris-Oxford Partnership (POP) Visiting Fellowship Programme


The Paris-Oxford Partnership (POP) is a new scheme motivated by the exceptional strength, range, and quality of Humanities research in the University of Oxford and the Université de Paris in partnership with the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS). It is designed to enhance and support the existence of prior research links, and identify potential for significant interdisciplinary activity.


The Visiting Fellowship Programme at Université de Paris supports Oxford researchers for stays of 1-2 months (4-8 weeks) to undertake advanced research in collaboration with colleagues at Université de Paris.


This Fellowship Programme aims to support innovative new paradigms or research questions, the creation of substantial new outputs and research findings; and to foster relationships that may lead to collaborative research grant and award applications (for instance, from the European Research Council).


For this opportunity, proposals are welcome that address topics of strategic interdisciplinary significance. Indicative themes may include but are not limited to borders; humanities and the brain; ecologies, the climate crisis and environmental humanities; government, governance and big data; digital humanities; health, well-being and the medical humanities; decolonisation and post-colonialism; curation and performance.


During the course of the Fellowship, Université de Paris will provide accommodation in Paris and a bursary to cover travel and maintenance. For further details about the Fellowship, please consult the notes for guidance.
