Rui Lopes receives Remarque Institute Fellowship

Mar 22, 2024 | News

Rui Lopes has been awarded a Remarque Visiting Fellowship at New York University’s Remarque Institute, where he will work on the relationship between the Cold War, spy cinema, and comic books.

During four months in the autumn of 2024, the IHC researcher will have the opportunity to finish writing a monograph on the geopolitics of European spy cinema from the 1960s-70s, do archive research and interviews for another future publication and take part in the Remarque Institute’s seminars and workshops.

The historian is the third IHC member to win this prestigious fellowship — Ana Paula Pires and Daniele Serapiglia were the other two — joining a group of personalities that include Rui Tavares, António Costa Pinto, Zeev Sternhell, Donald Sassoon, and Ruth Ben-Ghiat. The Remarque Institute “supports the multi-disciplinary and comparative study of Europe and its near neighbours”. It was created in 1995 under the direction of British historian Tony Judt.
