        Subject: Mellon Fellowships in Critical Bibliography at Rare Book School

Rare Book School (RBS) at the University of Virginia welcomes applications from medievalists to the Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship of Scholars in Critical Bibliography.  The aim of this Mellon Foundation-funded fellowship program is to reinvigorate bibliographical studies within the humanities by introducing doctoral candidates, postdoctoral fellows, and junior faculty to specialized skills, methods, and professional networks for conducting advanced research with material texts. RBS selected forty Mellon Fellows in 2013 and 2014, and will admit an additional twenty fellows to the program in the spring of 2015.

Fellows will receive funding for RBS course attendance, as well as generous stipends, and support for research-related travel to special collections, over the course of three years. Courses at RBS cover topics such as paleography (taught by Consuelo Dutschke), codicology (taught by Albert Derolez), and scholarly editing (taught by David Vander Meulen). 

The deadline for application to the program is MONDAY 1 DECEMBER 2014. Applicants must be doctoral candidates (post-qualifying exams or other requirements), postdoctoral fellows, or junior (untenured) faculty in the humanities at a U.S. institution at time of application.

RARE BOOK SCHOOL RECEIVES MELLON FOUNDATION GRANT TO SUPPORT FELLOWSHIPS IN CRITICAL BIBLIOGRAPHY

Fellowship program seeks to reinvigorate bibliographical studies within the humanities

Charlottesville, VA, October 1, 2014 – Rare Book School (RBS) at the University of Virginia has been awarded a $757,000 grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to extend and augment its three-year fellowship program, the Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship of Scholars in Critical Bibliography, established in 2012 through funding from the Foundation. The aim of the program is to reinvigorate bibliographical studies within the humanities. Forty fellows currently participate in the program; RBS will name an additional twenty fellows in the spring of 2015.

The Mellon Fellowships at Rare Book School enable a select group of doctoral candidates, postdoctoral fellows, and junior faculty in the humanities to receive advanced, intensive training in the analysis of textual artifacts. Led by a distinguished faculty drawn from the bibliographical community and professionals in allied fields, fellows will attend annual research-oriented seminars at Rare Book School and at major special collections libraries nationwide. Fellows will also receive stipends to support research-related travel to special collections, and additional funds to host academic symposia at their home institutions.  

“Rare Book School's Mellon Fellows work on a remarkable variety of materials, including ancient graffiti buried at Herculaneum, medieval Italian song manuscripts, Japanese textbooks from the Age of Discovery, and ‘viral’ news clips from 19th-century America. Over the past two years, they have shared fresh perspectives with their colleagues in the program, and with the greater bibliographical and academic communities,” said RBS Director Michael F. Suarez, S.J. “We are profoundly grateful for all that the Foundation's support has made possible through this program, and we trust that the fellows’ achievements and collaborations will continue to enrich humanities scholarship.”

The deadline for application to join the program’s third cohort of fellows is December 1, 2014. More information about the Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship of Scholars in Critical Bibliography is available at:
