In recognition of the pioneering work of Salwa Mikdadi, The Association for Modern and Contemporary Art in the Arab World, Turkey and Iran (AMCA) is thrilled to launch The Salwa Mikdadi Research Award.Salwa’s work has been instrumental in the development of the field, culminating in the establishment of al Mawrid Arab Center for the Study of Art. With the establishment of this award, AMCA seeks to highlight the importance of archival research and its dissemination while honoring the legacy of Salwa’s career.

The research travel grant ($1000) aims to help scholars realize archival research they are not otherwise able to undertake (including undergraduate students writing theses, graduate students at the early stages of planning for archival research, and lecturers and faculty lacking access to research support funds).

To apply, send a brief proposal (500 words) of your intended research project and the relevance of the selected archives for the project, a short cv, and names and contact information for 2 references to info@amcainternational.org
