The Remarque Institute supports up to two faculty members each year who wish to spend up to one semester in research residency at the École Normale Supérieure in Paris. In exceptional cases, requests for two semesters of residency will be considered. Candidacy is normally limited to NYU faculty, although in exceptional cases, applicants from Remarque affiliates will also be considered.
These Fellowships are non-stipendiary and are intended for faculty on sabbatical leave or with extramural funding or other outside support. Faculty fellows are provided with modest private office space at ENS, round-trip travel between New York and Paris, and a modest per diem subsidy for the duration of their stay. Faculty fellows are expected to identify and pay for their own housing in Paris.
Faculty who are awarded fellowships in Paris are expected to be in regular residence at ENS, where they will have access to library and other resources; they may be asked to give one presentation in an ENS seminar or other venue during the course of their stay. These fellowships are thus not appropriate for those planning to spend significant amounts of time away from Paris, who do not anticipate making use of the office space provided them at ENS, or who are not interested in being part of the ENS community during their stay in Paris. Nor are they appropriate for those who do not have, at minimum, an intermediate-level command of the French language, though applicants certainly need not work on France or French topics.
