Houghton Library Visiting Fellows
Deadline: January 13
Fellowships are available at Houghton Library, 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.
Short-term fellowships are available to assist scholars who must travel to work with library collections. Each fellow is expected to be in residence at Houghton for at least one month. One long-term fellowship is available to assist scholarly research in descriptive bibliography at Houghton Library. Fellows are expected to be in residence at Houghton Library for the duration of the fellowship.
Preference is given to scholars whose research is closely based on materials in Houghton Library(especially when those materials are unique); fellowships are not normally granted to scholars who live within commuting distance of the library.
