A quick reminder that the due date for Houghton Library’s 2017-18 Visiting Fellowships is January 13, 2017. All of the details about the application process can be found through the link above, but note that preference is given to scholars whose research is closely based on materials in Houghton Library, especially when those materials are unique. The best guide to locating materials in the Harvard Theatre Collection is here. This year we will be awarding the following fellowships:
- Beatrice, Benjamin, and Richard Bader Fellowship in the Visual Arts of the Theatre
- Howard D. Rothschild Fellowship in Dance
- Robert Gould Shaw Fellowship for the Harvard Theatre Collection
- John M. Ward Fellowship in Dance and Music for the Theatre
Applicants need not apply for specific fellowships, as the Selection Committee will determine which fellowship is best suited to your research when awarded. Please also be sure to consult the full list of Houghton Library fellowships, as it includes additional ones such as the Katharine F. Pantzer Jr. Fellowship in Descriptive Bibliography, which might be applied to Theatre Collection projects. A list of past fellowship recipients can be found here.
