Historic Deerfield is accepting applications for a new short-term visiting research fellowship to promote in-depth library and archival research in the Memorial Libraries, a library jointly administered with the Pocumtuck Valley Memorial Association (PVMA). The opportunity is open to graduate students engaged in thesis or dissertation research or post-graduate students for a period of four to six weeks. We welcome proposals relevant to the Libraries’ focus areas, which include American material culture and decorative arts, and the history of early New England, the Connecticut River Valley, and western Massachusetts.
Applicants may search our website https://www.historic-deerfield.org/libraries/ for more information, subject guides to both collections, finding aids, and a link to the online catalog of the Flynt Library. More information on the PVMA Library’s holdings can be accessed here: https://deerfield-ma.org/about/library/.
Stipend: $2,500 for four weeks; $3,750 for six weeks.
The deadline is April 15, 2023. Selected fellows will be notified by early June for residencies beginning September 1, 2023 through May 30, 2024.
