The American Academic Research Institute in Iraq (TAARII)
Fellowship Opportunities for U.S. Scholars to Conduct Research on Iraq
The American Academic Research Institute in Iraq (TAARII) invites proposals from U.S. scholars for feasible research on Iraq-related topics to be conducted outside of Iraq. For example, projects could include:
·Research in archives in the U.S., Europe, Turkey, or India
·Interviews with Iraqis living abroad
·Remote sensing of ancient Iraqi landscapes
·Collaboration between a U.S. scholar and an Iraqi living in Iraq.
TAARII is a consortium of American universities, museums, and other scholarly institutions dedicated to the furtherance of research in and on Iraq and to fostering mutual understanding and respect between American and Iraqi peoples. TAARII intends to establish a research center and hostel in Baghdad. However, under current circumstances, it operates mainly outside Iraq.
Funding for this program is provided by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State through a grant from the Council of American Overseas Research Centers (CAORC).
Proposals for TAARII’s U.S. Fellowship program are invited from individual American post-doctoral and advanced pre-doctoral researchers for awards of up to $10,000.
Applications must be received by December 15, 2012.
Awards will be announced in February, for projects that should begin after March 15, 2013.
