The Mary and David Harrison Institute of the University of Virginia Library invites scholars working in the area of American literature to apply for the Lillian Gary Taylor Fellowship and residency. Successful applicants are chosen on the strength of their projects, their relevance to the mission of the Harrison Institute, and the ability of the University of Virginia Library to provide appropriate resources for the projects. Preference will be given to applicants pursuing advanced research beyond the graduate level, however we encourage Ph.D. candidates to apply. We particularly encourage applicants whose projects require access to materials in the Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library. Visiting fellows are considered part of the Library’s and University’s intellectual community and while in residence are expected to present their research in a public forum. The duration of a Taylor Fellow residency can be from one to three months. Preference will be given to applicants who live beyond a 60-mile radius of Charlottesville, VA.
