Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton
This gift is meant to encourage research into the history and culture of Early Modern peninsular Spain from the XV century to the beginning of the XIX century. Applicants will be selected by the Faculty based on their individual excellence, the quality of the research proposal, and the value of the proposed research to the field as a whole. Distinguished visiting scholars will be appointed for full-year or one-term memberships, during which they will be provided with an optimal environment conducive to focused study.
The new Membership wishes to honor Sir John Elliott’s fundamental contribution to our knowledge of Spain’s Golden Age and the Hispanic world. His international academic career includes 17 years as a member of the Faculty of the School of Historical Studies at the Institute for Advanced Study.
