The competition for 2018-19 is now closed.
In 2009 the Faculty of History received funding from the International Balzan Prize Foundation to establish an annual Lecture in modern intellectual history since c. 1500. The Balzan-Skinner scholar held a Visiting Fellowship at CRASSH for one term during the academic year. He/she presented the Balzan-Skinner lecture and participated in the related symposium during the academic year of attendance. This fellowship is now known as the Quentin Skinner Fellowship in Intellectual History since c1500. Like the Balzan-Skinner scholar the Quentin Skinner fellow will hold a Visiting Fellowship at CRASSH for one term, present the Quentin Skinner lecture, as well as organise and participate in the related symposium.
