Fellowships - Bodleian Libraries
From the SHARP-L listserv:
Bodleian Libraries Visiting Fellowships
The Bodleian Libraries invite applications for Visiting Fellowships in 2014. Fellowships of between one and four months are available to scholars whose research requires use of the Bodleian Libraries Special Collections.
The Special Collections of the Bodleian Libraries are an outstanding resource for scholarly study and discovery, containing rare printed books, classical papyri, medieval and renaissance manuscripts, literary, political and historical papers, archives, printed ephemera, and maps and music in both manuscript and printed form. The collections contain material from western and non-western cultures, of all dates and periods from antiquity onwards. The collections support a vibrant programme of public exhibitions as well as research and learning by students and scholars.
Visiting Fellows are expected to be resident in Oxford during the term of the Fellowship.
Applicants should carefully consult the descriptions provided on the Fellowships webpage here, which define any special topics or other criteria for application.
In every case, the selection committees will consider the potential of the planned research to increase knowledge and understanding of the Bodleian Libraries’ Special Collections or the development of innovative research methods for the study of these materials.
