The Schoenberg Institute for Manuscript Studies: Visiting Research Fellowships (2017-2018) – Call For Applications

The University of Pennsylvania Libraries is now accepting applications for the 2017-2018 Schoenberg Institute for Manuscript Studies (SIMS) Visiting Research Fellowship program.

Guided by the vision of its founders, Lawrence J. Schoenberg and Barbara Brizdle Schoenberg, SIMS aims to bring manuscript culture, modern technology, and people together to provide access to and understanding of our shared intellectual heritage. Part of the Penn Libraries, SIMS oversees an extensive collection of pre-modern manuscripts from around the world, with a special focus on the history of philosophy and science, and creates open-access digital content to support the study of its collections. SIMS also hosts the Schoenberg Database of Manuscripts and the annual Schoenberg Symposium on Manuscript Studies in the Digital Age.

The SIMS Visiting Research Fellowships have been established to encourage research relating to the premodern manuscript collections at the University of Pennsylvania Libraries, including the Schoenberg Collection. Affiliated with the University of Pennsylvania, located near other manuscript-rich research collections (the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, the Free Library of Philadelphia, the Chemical Heritage Foundation, and the Rosenbach Museum and Library, among many others), and linked to the local and international scholarly communities, SIMS offers fellows a network of resources and opportunities for collaboration. Fellows will be encouraged to interact with SIMS staff, Penn faculty, and other medieval and early modern scholars in the Philadelphia area. Fellows will also be expected to present their research at Penn Libraries either during the term of the fellowship or on a selected date following the completion of the term.

Applicants can apply to spend 1 month (4-5 weeks) at SIMS between July 1, 2017, and June 30, 2018. Project proposals should demonstrate that the Libraries’ premodern manuscript resources are integral to proposed research topics. Two fellowships with a stipend of $5000 each will be awarded this year.

Recipients will be expected to conduct their research at SIMS, excluding short research trips in support of the proposed project to nearby institutions. Proposals with a digital component are encouraged though not required.
