British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Funding: MACK Annual Research Fellowship / closes 20 January 2022

MACK, the book publisher, has announced its new annual research fellowship, in which it invites proposals for books that investigate an area of cultural history which is deserving of and lacking in critical attention. 

It is especially interested in projects that include, but are not limited to, untold historic lineages, overlooked collectives and communities, specific movements of activism and collaboration, and artists who work in the intersection of art, photography and literature in new ways. The successful candidate will research, edit, write the primary text for, and manage the production of a book on the subject to be published by MACK.

The role can be adapted to the work and life commitments of the successful candidate, but we anticipate that it will either involve an estimated 2 days a week commitment over a 6-month period, or a block of approximately 40 - 50 days within an agreed time frame. The successful applicant will receive a fee of £8,000 plus funding for agreed costs. 

Applicants should send a covering letter with their CV and the names of two referees to fellowship@mackbooks.co.uk by no later than 20 January 2022, outlining their proposed research project (including key thesis, figures, events, movements and so on), together with relevant past research and proven track record in no more than two A4 pages maximum. Successful candidates will be invited for an interview.
