        Subject: New Funded Fellowship Opportunity, CLS INFRA (Final Call for Applications)

Dear Colleagues,

Computational Literary Studies Infrastructure (CLS INFRA) recently announced a
new funded Fellowship opportunity.

CLS INFRA ( is a European Commission-funded project which
aims to create unified and easy access to a wide range of European and national
infrastructures for the Computational Literary Studies community. The overall
aim the project is to create unified and easy access to a wide range of European
and national infrastructures for the Computational Literary Studies community.
This includes: connecting the building of resources and infrastructure,
providing training environments and networks, and promoting the theoretical
considerations of these resources and infrastructures. A key part of this aim is
the provision of Transnational Access Fellowships (TNA) which aims to provides
access to a wide range of data, tools and knowledge.

We are currently inviting applications for the first call of the TNA Fellowships
from interested parties.

Scholars from literary studies or with an interest in Computational Literary
Studies methods are invited to apply for a fellowship grant in one of our
infrastructure providers. Successful applicants will not only obtain free-of-
charge physical access to the infrastructure, but in the context of the overall
project they will become part of the larger CLS community. By responding to one
of our calls, applicants may have the opportunity to:

  *   Interact with experts;
  *   Receive advice on ongoing projects;
  *   Learn how to use the ecosystem of data, tools and standards;
  *   Assemble new literary corpora;
  *   Profit from hands-on training and support.

Fellowships grants will cover housing and subsistence costs as well as travel to
and from the host institution. The CLS INFRA Fellowships are funded by the
European Union under the rules of transnational access.

Calls for fellowship grants will be launched twice a year for a total of six
calls. Scholars from the European Union and beyond are eligible to apply.
Successful applicants are expected to join the chosen infrastructure for a
period of 8 to 12 weeks. However, shorter residencies will be also taken into

The first call is now open and will close on Monday 6 December 2021.
