Four Olivia Remie Constable Awards of $1,500 will be granted annually in memory of Remie Constable, each to an emerging junior faculty member, adjunct or unaffiliated scholar (broadly understood: post-doctoral, pre-tenure) for research and travel. This award is meant to reflect the high standards of Remie’s scholarship, but is not limited to her own specialty in the economic history of Arabic Spain, as suggested by her publications, but her broader interdisciplinary interests in Medieval Studies (as exemplified by her teaching, her leadership, and her service to the discipline).
The award may be used to fund travel to archives or scholarly conferences; for acquiring copies of documents; to pay for images, equipment, hardware, software, or digital access; and/or to purchase library privileges if necessary. The Olivia Remie Constable Awards will be granted on the basis of the quality of applicants’ proposed projects and estimations of the ways in which an award will facilitate their research. Preference will go to scholars and teachers who have no or limited institutional support.
The deadline for applications is 15 February. The application will consist of a biographical form, CV, a proposal of no more than one page, and a simple budget if appropriate. Supplementary material and letters of recommendation are optional. So as not to burden the applicant, it is perfectly appropriate to include material and letters prepared for other grant applications. Applicants must be members in good standing of the Medieval Academy as of 15 January of the year in which they apply.
