Distinguished Visiting Fellowship Scheme

The Queen Mary Institute for the Humanities and Social Sciences (IHSS) was established to showcase the disciplinary, cross-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary research strengths of humanities and social sciences research at Queen Mary University of London, and to enable leading scholars from around the world to engage and contribute to this research environment.

A key part of the Institute‚Äôs activity is the Distinguished Visiting Fellowship programme.  This scheme enables scholars from around the world to spend up to one month visiting the Institute and the Faculty to engage with the particular thematic programme of activity.

For many years, the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences has run a successful Distinguished Visiting Fellows programme and the Queen Mary IHSS scheme builds on that and extends it to more junior scholars.
