Fellows appointed will be expected to participate in the research culture of the Library, developing a small research project at the Newberry along lines compatible with the programme theme. This research will be presented during the course of a two-week Residential Workshop to be held at the Newberry Library from July 23
- August 3, 2007. (Visiting Fellows will be provided with accommodation and full board at the Newberry for the duration of the summer workshop.) These projects might include: a case study of a particular neo-Latin or Spanish text, or of a specific intellectual domain (e.g. bibliography, history of science, religion, encounters with indigenous American languages and cultures, emergence of cultural identities etc.)
The application deadline is October 21 2006, and successful applicants will be informed by 1 December 2006. ALL applicants will be automatically considered for places as participants in the residential workshop. We also welcome applications to attend the summer workshop only.
Applicants should be advanced doctoral and post-doctoral students (who received PhDs in 2004-2007). Doctoral students attending institutions that are members of the Newberry Library Center for Renaissance Studies Consortium, and recent post-doctoral graduates of those institutions, are eligible to apply. The fellows may be drawn from any disciplinary context in Renaissance studies (broadly defined) or in the Classical tradition and who will have an interest in advancing their knowledge and understanding of intellectual and cultural history of colonial Spanish America and its important relation to developments in early modern Europe.
