Offered in collaboration with the Library Company of Philadelphia, this fellowship supports work combining the study of texts with examination of the material aspects of their dissemination. Appointments are for 13-month terms beginning July 1. These fellowships are open to dissertators in English, American Literature, Comparative Literature, American Studies, History, Art History, or related fields whose work combines in innovative ways the study of texts: novels, poems, plays, newspapers,magazines, scribal publications, genres not traditionally defined as literary with the material circumstances of their production and dissemination. Projects should rely on the extraordinary rare book, print, and ephemera collections of the Library Company. The fellows’ terms will begin and end with a summer workshop under the guidance of a senior invited scholar.
The due date for this award is February 1.
