Research Fellowship Opportunity: The Armstrong Browning Library

An opportunity for those researching nineteenth-century literature and history, via Holly Spofford:

The Armstrong Browning Library (ABL), located on the campus of Baylor University, is a world-renowned research center and rare-collections library devoted to nineteenth-century studies.

The ABL has established a Three-Month Research Fellowship for leading scholars from outside Baylor. Prof. Dino Felluga (English, Purdue University) served as the inaugural fellow during fall 2017, and Prof. Clare Simmons (English, Ohio State University) will serve as the fall 2018 fellow.

Applications are being accepted for fall 2019, and are due by Sept. 7, 2018. $28,000 will be transferred directly to the Fellow’s home institution in three equal installments to help cover expenses incurred by this Research Fellowship. In addition, the Fellow’s initial travel to, and final return journey from, Baylor will be covered, as will lodging in well-furnished, high-quality apartments. Finalists will be notified by Oct. 10, 2018, and will be interviewed before the end of October.
