The Bibliographical Society of America
2011 Fellowship Program Announcement

The BSA invites applications for its fourth annual Pantzer Senior Fellowship
in Bibliography and the British Book Trades as well as its annual short-term
fellowship program, all of which support bibliographical inquiry and
research in the history of the book trades and in publishing history.
Eligible topics may concentrate on books and documents in any field, but
should focus on the book or manuscript (the physical object) as historical
evidence. Such topics may include establishing a text or studying the
history of book production, publication, distribution, collecting, or
reading. Enumerative listings do not fall within the scope of this program.

Senior fellows are provided a stipend of $6,000; short-term fellows receive
a stipend of up to $2,000 per month (for up to two months) to support
travel, living, and research expenses. The program is open to applicants of
any nationality or affiliation. Individuals who have not held a BSA
fellowship in the last five years will be given preference.

Applications, including references, are due by midnight 1 December 2010.
Application forms (in static PDF and Word formats) and submission
instructions are available for download at www.bibsocamer.org, or they may
be requested from the BSA Executive Secretary, P.O. Box 1537, Lenox Hill
Station, New York, NY 10021, e-mail bsa(at)bibsocamer.org. Applications will
be accepted through the post or by e-mail attachment, with a PDF via e-mail
prefered. Any questions about the submission procedure can be directed to
David Gants, Chair of the Fellowship Committee, dgants(at)fsu.edu.
