The Consortium for Guitar Research announces The Andrew Britton Fellowship

Posted By Erin Young, Tuesday, January 12, 2016

The Consortium for Guitar Research

At Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge

 

A society of scholars and guitar players devoted to the musical history, the social history and the organology of guitars, but with special emphasis on the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries

 

The Andrew Britton Fellowship

 

The Consortium for Guitar Research, an affiliate of the Royal Musical Association of Great Britain, invites applications from guitar researchers, at an early stage of their work, for a Fellowship in honour of Dr. Andrew Britton who died suddenly last autumn. The Fellowship covers accommodation and college meals during the three-day colloquium of the Consortium at Sidney Sussex College, The University of Cambridge, to be held from Saturday 9 April to Tuesday 12 April 2016. Because membership of the Consortium is by invitation only, this award provides a unique opportunity to share ideas with a group of acknowledged experts in the field. See www.guitarconsortium.wordpress.com for more information regarding the Consortium and its members.

 

Although there is no age limit, the applicant for the Andrew Britton Fellowship must be deemed to be at an early stage of their work. During the conference, the recipient is encouraged to give a 30 minute paper or other account of their current research, but this is not obligatory.

 

Applicants are invited to submit their CV, and a 400 word (maximum) statement describing their latest research and why this award would be useful to them. The application must be sent via email, in a word or PDF document, to Professor Christopher Page chp1000@cam.ac.uk by 20 February 2016.

 

The chosen candidate will be notified by 1 March 2016 and is required to accept the place by 7 March 2016. The Consortium reserves the right not to appoint to the Fellowship if they deem no applicant suitable. The successful candidate will fund their own travel and must ensure any necessary visas are in place.

 

Dr Andrew Britton was a Founding Member of the Consortium. His PhD thesis The guitar in the romantic period: its musical and social development, with special reference to Bristol and Bath is a benchmark to all new Scholars and is available online on the British Library Ethos site.

 

The Andrew Britton Fellowship is funded by the Larkum Fund of Sidney Sussex College.
