aseh/newberry library fellowship for 2017
If you are researching the environment and humanities, the Newberry Library has something for you!
The Newberry is proud to host a residential fellowship sponsored by the ASEH.
The Newberry is an internationally renowned independent research library, which offers an extensive collection of rare books, maps, music, manuscripts, and other printed materials spanning six centuries. The maps, published texts, manuscripts, art and photography, and ephemera could be particularly useful to topics in environmental history. Newberry fellowships provide assistance to researchers who wish to use our collection. We promise you intriguing and often rare materials; a lively, interdisciplinary community of researchers; individual consultations on your research with staff curators, librarians, and other scholars; and an array of both scholarly and public programs.
This fellowship is for PhD candidates or post-doctoral scholars and supports one month in residency at the Newberry Library in Chicago. Applicants from outside of the Chicago area who have a specific need for research in the Newberry collection are eligible. Applicants must be members of the ASEH in good standing at the time of application and through the period of the fellowship. Preference will be given to scholars working in environmental history.
The monthly stipend for this fellowship is $2,500. For more information, visit the Newberry's website: www.newberry.org/short-term-fellowships
