French Political Pamphlet Research Fellowship

Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah houses an important collection of political pamphlets printed in France during the period of the Religious Wars (1550) through the reign of Louis XIII (1643). A description of the holdings and an annotated bibliography of the pamphlets can be found online here.

The department of French and Italian at Brigham Young University solicits applications for a fellowship that will support a short-term residency allowing for on-site consultation of the pamphlets. The department will cover airfare, food, lodging and provide a $1000 honorarium for a scholar to spend up to two weeks in Provo researching the collection.

The stay must be completed sometime in 2018 at a time agreed upon by the fellow and the sponsoring department. The fellow will give one lecture on their project to a group of faculty and students during the fellowship period.

Please send a one page research proposal along with a CV and tentative dates by email to the chair of the department of French and Italian at BYU, Corry Applicants must have a US social security or tax ID number and will be responsible for securing their own entry visas where applicable. The review of proposals will begin on April 1, 2018 and the winner will be notified by May 1.
