New-York Historical Society Public Fellows Program in Religion in the American West
|Location:||New York, United States|
Public Fellows in Religion and the American West
The New-York Historical Society, with support from the Henry Luce Foundation, invites applications from advanced graduate students and scholars (affiliated and independent) who earned their Ph.D after 2016 to conduct directed research projects connected to the role of religion and spirituality in the history of 19th century U.S. westward expansion. This research will provide support for the exhibit Acts of Faith: Religion in the American West to open at the New-York Historical Society in New York City in Fall 2022. Fellows, who will receive stipends of $3000, will share their work at a convening in 2022, and have the opportunity to become acquainted with the possibilities and protocols of working with a museum in the creation of publicly engaged scholarship.

Deadline for submission of applications is August 15, 2020.
