Onderzoeksverblijven

Het Rubenianum biedt specifieke faciliteiten aan voor professionele onderzoekers die aan een academische instelling zijn verbonden en die werken over Vlaamse kunst uit de 16de en 17de eeuw.

 

Wat?

Het Rubenianum ondersteunt gastonderzoekers in het kader van hun onderzoek naar 16de- en 17de-eeuwse Vlaamse kunst en cultuur. De onderzoeker deelt een kantoor met alle faciliteiten met andere gastonderzoekers, geniet vrije toegang tot de collecties en kan symposia en lezingen bijwonen of organiseren in het Rubenianum.

De onderzoeker wordt aangemoedigd om actief te participeren aan de activiteiten van de onderzoeksgemeenschap waartoe ook de stafleden van het Rubenshuis behoren, en bij te dragen aan lopende onderzoeksprojecten in huis. De staf van het Rubenianum staat gastonderzoekers bij met raad en daad en zorgt waar nodig voor introducties bij andere instellingen. Gastonderzoekers kunnen hun onderzoek ook presenteren op interuniversitaire seminars in Leuven en Gent.

 

Voor wie?

Voor doctoraatsstudenten, postdoctorale onderzoekers en professoren die verbonden zijn aan een academische instelling.

Getuigenissen van gastonderzoekers

 

Kendra Grimmett

PhD Candidate, University of Pennsylvania, Rubenianum Fellow 2018-2019

"Working at the Rubenianum shaped and enriched my dissertation in record time.  As a Fellow, the vast collection of specialized publications and archives were as easily accessible as a personal library. Just outside my office, I walked into the stacks and found every book in my preliminary bibliography, as well as rare items that I discovered during my time in Antwerp. Remarkably, when a book was not part of the collection, but related to the work of the institution, the librarians purchased a copy for my use. 

One of the most valuable aspects of working at the Rubenianum is becoming part of its community of scholars. My project and I were greeted with warmth and enthusiasm. After presenting an overview of my research goals to my Rubenianum colleagues, I received thoughtful feedback and helpful suggestions. I am immensely grateful for the generosity and support of the Rubenianum and my fellow fellows who became my friends."

“Even with the digitalization of books there are still many old periodicals and monographs, including works from the eighteenth and the nineteenth century, that I have only ever been able to access here in this collection.”

“For someone in my field the Rubenianum is legendary. It has been amazing to me working here how the names that were just legends for me are people I encounter at the water cooler or making a cup of coffee and get to talk to now on a day-to-day basis about my research.”

“To list the ways that being affiliated with the Rubenianum has streamlined my work would be to sell this experience short. For it has enabled a speed and efficiency of research that I hadn’t known was possible. Even coming from US institutions with incredibly rich libraries, it was hard for me to imagine a place that has virtually everything published (and many times not even published) on my topics of inquiry; in turn, I have accomplished research that might have taken several days and weeks in the States in the space of an afternoon with a stack of books shelved steps away from my desk.” 

“The Rubenianum’s prominent standing as a meeting point for both Belgian and international art historical audiences has made it an ideal venue from which to take the temperature of the field of Flemish art history. There is no other institution that so perfectly positions a young academic to meet major scholars in the field, to benefit from seeing specialists in conversation and debate, and to compare art histories practiced in the US and in Europe.”
