The deadline is approaching for the 2017/2018 University at Buffalo Libraries Special Collections Fellowships.

The UB Humanities Institute, in collaboration with the UB Libraries, is offering two fellowships - the James Joyce Fellowship and the Charles D. Abbott Library Fellowship - for visiting scholars and graduate students working on their dissertations to use the UB Libraries' outstanding special collections, which include the Poetry Collection, University Archives, Rare Books, the Music Library, the Polish Collection, and the History of Medicine Collection.

The James Joyce Fellowship

The stipend is up to $4,000 for scholars and graduate students whose research is centered on the writings of James Joyce, Modernism, Joyce-related research, research on Sylvia Beach, Modernist publishers, Modernist genetic criticism, Joyce's literary circle, his literary colleagues, or his influences.

The Charles D. Abbott Library Fellowship

The stipend is up to $4,000 for scholars and graduate students whose research would be enhanced by any of the books, manuscripts or unique documents in the UB Libraries special collections, which include materials from the Poetry Collection, University Archives, Rare Books, the Polish Collection, the Music Library, and the History of Medicine Collection.

The fellowships provide stipends to cover the cost of fellows' travel to Buffalo and accommodation and expenses during the time of their stay. In addition to the stipend, Fellows will receive library and parking privileges at UB and are invited to participate in any Humanities Institute events that occur during the time of their visit. If feasible, Fellows are invited to give one public lecture on their research. Fellows are also asked to submit a one page, single-spaced report on the value of having used the collection at UB that will be posted on the Humanities Institute website.

Please note that applicants may apply for only one fellowship per academic year.
