Fellowships 2011-2012, Houghton Library, USA

Houghton Library is the principal rare book and manuscript library of Harvard College. The Library’s holdings are particularly strong in the following areas: European, English, American, and South American literature, including the country’s pre-eminent collection of American literary manuscripts; philosophy; religion; history of science; music; printing and graphic arts; dance; and theatre.

Fellows will also have access to collections in Widener Library as well as to other libraries at the University. Preference is given to scholars whose research is closely based on materials in Houghton collections, especially when those materials are unique; fellowships are normally not granted to scholars who live within commuting distance of the library.

Each fellow is expected to be in residence at Houghton for at least four weeks during the period from July 2011 through June 2012 (these do not have to be consecutive weeks). The stipend for each fellowship is $3,000. Other than the Pantzer Fellowship, applicants need not apply for specific fellowships, as the Selection Committee would determine which fellowship is best suited to your research.
