Overview

The Resident Fellows Program at ACM is designed for visiting professors on sabbatical leave from their home institutions. Fellows can integrate into ACM's existing academic infrastructures in France and Spain which include faculty, facilities, library, and archives. Many of the past Fellows worked on books or research projects, as well as collaborated with different ACM professors and students on various projects and learning activities. Fellows do not teach at ACM. However, in exchange for the fellowship, they are asked to provide one or two guest lectures to ACM students in their area of expertise. Faculty interested in teaching should consider ACM's customized/faculty-led opportunities. The Resident Fellows Program is available at ACM's Aix-en-Provence, France and Barcelona, Spain campuses.


Eligibility

ACM welcomes applications from faculty at participating U.S. partner institutions.  Partner institutions include colleges and universities with signed memoranda of understanding with ACM.  ACM will occasionally accept nominations from distinguished faculty from the EU, the Middle East, and North Africa. Ultimately the deliberations and final decision made by the Selection Committee are primarily based on the research project and the overall connection to ACM and our commitment to the languages, cultures, and history of the Mediterranean.   

Expectations

While at ACM, the Resident Fellow can expect to:

  • Interact and consult with ACM’s experienced faculty
  • Participate in select ACM courses and programs at the discretion of those faculty teaching the courses
  • Promote the intellectual and cultural exchange at ACM through a series of public lectures in their field of expertise
  • Conduct smaller seminars and discussions with ACM students and faculty
  • Develop their own research during the Fellowship period
  • Participate in various excursions to neighboring regions with students. Some examples for the Aix-en-Provence campus include day trips to Arles, Avignon, Bonnieux, LaCiotat, Nice, and Marseille.


Application

Interested U.S. Faculty must complete the ACM Resident Fellows Application and adhere to the deadlines listed below.

Deadlines

    • Fall semester and/or academic year: March 1
