The Bibliographical Society of America 2010 Fellowship Program
Applications due by 1 December 2009

The Bibliographical Society of America  invites applications for its third 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 physical object as historical evidence (although digital projects are welcome). 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 2009. 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@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@fsu.edu.
