The Centre is accepting applications for the 2021-22 biannual fellowship until 19 February 2021 at 1pm BST.
For full application details please click here.

The Centre for French History and Culture of the University of St  Andrews (UK) has hosted a visiting fellow every two years since 2007.  This is a sabbatical fellowship, usually lasting 2-3 months, and often particularly suited to academics in the later stages of writing up a substantial piece of research. The Fellowship is open to any academic across the world in a permanent or tenure-track faculty post with research interests in any area of the Francophone world during any period of history.

The Fellowship carries with it no teaching duties, though the Fellow is expected to present a research paper and to take part in the normal seminar life of the Centre and the School of History during his or her stay in St Andrews. The Fellowship provides a stipend of £3000, intended to defray costs such as transportation to and from St Andrews from the holder’s normal place of work and accommodation costs while resident in St Andrews. The Fellow has full borrowing and e-access rights in the University Library.

Previous holders of this Visiting Fellowship include Professor Jan Dumolyn (Ghent University, Belgium), Professor Norman Ingram (Concordia University, Canada), Professor Eric Jennings (University of Toronto, Canada), Professor Junko Takeda (Syracuse University, USA), Professor Dominique Kalifa (Paris I – Panthéon Sorbonne, France), and Professor Nélia Dias (ISCTE – Instituto Universitário de Lisboa, Portugal), and Professor Andrew Orr (Kansas State University, USA).



We are delighted to announce the publication of the next book in St Andrews Studies in French History and Culture series:
Thomas A. Donlan, The Reform of Zeal: François de Sales and Militant French Catholicism
