Morton W. Bloomfield Visiting Scholar Program (Harvard)
The Morton W. Bloomfield Fund at Harvard University, in conjunction with the Medieval Doctoral Conference of the Department of English, invites applications to the Bloomfield Visiting Scholar Program.
The program is intended to assist scholars wishing to conduct research at Harvard over approximately a four-week period during the regular academic year, in any of the fields associated with Morton W. Bloomfield: particularly Old and Middle English, the history of English, the history of Christian thought, and medieval Jewish studies.
We offer $3000 in travel and accommodation subsidy for one or more selected scholars in these fields; we may be able to offer a further travel subsidy for fellows traveling from outside North America.
Bloomfield fellows will give a presentation of their work at the Medieval Doctoral Conference and might also be asked to meet with graduate students or attend a student seminar as a temporary member of our community.
Harvard’s academic year runs from early September to early December, and from early February to the end of April. Although applications are open to anyone, preference will be given to younger scholars who might benefit from access to Harvard’s resources.
To apply, please send a brief curriculum vitae, the title of a possible talk, a one-page project description, and a covering note detailing your proposed travel plans (offering alternative sets of dates if possible) to Daniel Donoghue, Department of English, Harvard University, 12 Quincy Street, Cambridge, MA 02138, U.S.A. by March 30, 2012.
