Mary Vidal Travel Award — Applications Due 15 November

Posted in graduate students, opportunities by Editor on October 28, 2010

HECAA members who are graduate students or who have completed the Ph.D. within the past three years are eligible to apply for modest subventions (between $100-$200, depending on the number of applicants and available funds). Named in memory of Professor Mary Vidal, the funds are intended to defray costs associated with research travel, conferences in which the recipients are presenting, or publication permission fees.

Applicants should send a CV and a brief description of the project, including an explanation of how the funds will be used, to Julie Plax by May 15th or November 15th (there are two deadlines).

Posted in resources by Editor on October 28, 2010

The Royal Society Digital Journal Archive, from 1665 to 2010 inclusive, will be free to view until 30 November 2010. Notes and Records of the Royal Society and the eighteenth-century volumes of The Philosophical Transactions may be useful for some Enfilade readers. Both are available through JStor, but such periods of free, fully open access are useful for a much larger audience.
