New Fellowship Offered in the Print Culture of the Americas

Reese Fellowship in the Print Culture of the Americas

Funded by the William Reese Company, this fellowship encourages research in the history of the book and other print formats, bibliography, and other aspects of print culture in America including publishing and marketing from the sixteenth century to 1900.  Projects may investigate any printed genre (e.g. books, prints, newspapers, magazines, pamphlets, published photographs, broadsides, maps, etc.).  Support for work in manuscript collections will be limited to projects related to printed materials (e.g. annotations in books, publishers’ business archives, etc.).

The Reese Fellowship provides $5,000 to support one month of in-residence study in the Clements Library collections.  This is a post-doctoral fellowship requiring a completed Ph.D. or equivalent qualifications.  Applications for residence in calendar year 2012 must be received by December 1, 2011.

See the Clements Library Research Fellowships page on our website for a full list of the fellowships offered and instructions for applications.
