In honor of James P. Danky's long service to print culture scholarship, the Center for the History of Print Culture in Modern America, in conjunction with the Wisconsin Historical Society, is again offering its annual short-term research fellowship.
The Danky Fellowship provides $1000 in funds for one individual planning a trip to carry out research using the collections of the Wisconsin Historical Society (please see details of the collections at http://www.wisconsinhistory.org). Grant money may be used for travel to the WHS, costs of copying pertinent archival resources, and living expenses while pursuing research here. If in residence during the semester, the recipient will be expected to give a presentation as part of the colloquium series of the Center for the History of Print Culture in Modern America (http://slisweb.lis.wisc.edu/~printcul/).
Preference will be given to:
proposals undertaking research in print culture history
researchers from outside Madison
research likely to lead to publication
We strongly encourage applicants to speak with the Reference Archivist at the WHS (phone: 608-264-6460; email: firstname.lastname@example.org) before applying for a grant. We are happy to help identify potential collections of which you may not otherwise be aware.
