FELLOWSHIP: Rare Book School’s Andrew W. Mellon Society of Fellows in Critical Bibliography (2019-2020)

Fellowship: Rare Book School’s Andrew W. Mellon Society of Fellows in Critical Bibliography (2019-2020)

Rare Book School’s Andrew W. Mellon Society of Fellows in Critical Bibliography invites applications for its (2019-2020) fellowship cohort.
Continuing the work of the Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship in Critical Bibliography (2012–17), this scholarly society works to advance the study of texts, images, and artifacts as material objects through capacious, interdisciplinary scholarship—and to enrich humanistic inquiry and education by identifying, mentoring, and training promising early-career scholars. Fellows will be encouraged and supported in integrating the methods of critical bibliography into their teaching and research, fostering collegial conversations about historical and emerging media across disciplines and institutions, and sharing their knowledge with broader publics. The fellowship includes tuition waivers for two Rare Book School courses, as well as funding for scholars to participate in the Society’s Annual Meeting and Orientation. Additional funds are available for fellows to organize symposia at their home institutions, and fellows will have the option of attending a bibliographical field school to visit libraries, archives, and collections in New York City.
The Society is committed to supporting diversity and to advancing the scholarship of outstanding persons of every race, gender, sexual orientation, creed, and socio-economic background, and to enhancing the diversity of the professions and academic disciplines it represents, including the professoriate, museums, libraries, archives, public humanists, digital humanities, and the humanist academic disciplines. We warmly encourage prospective applicants from a wide range of disciplines, institutions, expertise, and interest.
Deadline: 1 November 2018.

Informational inquiries can be directed to Prof. Elizabeth Yale, Chair, Selection Committee, at elizabeth-yale@uiowa.edu.
