Winterthur, a public museum, library, and garden supporting the advanced
study of American art, culture, and history, announces its Research
Fellowship Program for 2011-12. Winterthur offers an extensive program
of short- and long-term fellowships open to academic, independent, and
museum scholars, including advanced graduate students, to support
research in material culture, architecture, decorative arts, design,
consumer culture, garden and landscape studies, Shaker studies, travel
and tourism, the Atlantic World, childhood, literary culture, and many
other areas of social and cultural history. Fellowships include 4-9
month NEH fellowships, 1-2 semester dissertation fellowships, and 1-2
month short-term fellowships.
Fellows have full access to the library collections, including more than
87,000 volumes and one-half million manuscripts and images, searchable
online at winterthur.org/research/library_resources.asp<http://winterthur.org/research/library_resources.asp>.
Resources for the 17th to the early 20th centuries include period
trade catalogues, auction and exhibition catalogues, an extensive
reference photograph collection of decorative arts, printed books, and
ephemera. Fellows may conduct object-based research in the museum's
collections, which include 85,000 artifacts and works of art made or
used in America to 1860, with a strong emphasis on domestic life.
Winterthur also supports a program of scholarly publications including
Winterthur Portfolio: A Journal of American Material Culture.
Fellows may reside in a furnished stone farmhouse on the Winterthur
grounds, and participate in the lively scholarly community at
Winterthur, the nearby Hagley Museum and Library, the University of
Delaware, and other area museums.
Fellowship applications are due January 15, 2011.
