VENETIAN HISTORY AND CULTURE
The Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation announces its 2010-2011 program of grants (predoctoral and postdoctoral) for
travel to and residence in Venice and the Veneto. Grants will be awarded for historical research specifically on Venice
and the former Venetian empire, and for study of contemporary Venetian society and culture. Disciplines of the humanities
and social sciences are eligible areas of study, including (but not limited to) archaeology, architecture, art, bibliography,
economics, history, history of science, law, literature, music, political science, religion, and theater.
Applicants must (i) be citizens or permanent residents of the United States, (ii) have experience in advanced research at
the graduate level or equivalent, and (iii) if graduate students, have fulfilled all doctoral requirements except completion
of the dissertation (but including acceptance of dissertation proposal) by December 15, 2008. Candidates for the
