Mellon Fellowships in Critical Bibliography at Rare Book School

Rare Book School (RBS) at the University of Virginia welcomes
applications from Anglo-Saxonists to the Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship of
Scholars in Critical Bibliography.  The aim of this Mellon
Foundation-funded fellowship program is to reinvigorate bibliographical
studies within the humanities by introducing doctoral candidates,
postdoctoral fellows, and junior faculty to specialized skills, methods,
and professional networks for conducting advanced research with material
texts. RBS selected forty Mellon Fellows in 2013 and 2014, and will
admit an additional twenty fellows to the program in the spring of 2015.

Fellows will receive funding for RBS course attendance, as well as
generous stipends, and support for research-related travel to special
collections, over the course of three years. Courses at RBS cover topics
such as paleography (taught by Consuelo Dutschke), codicology (taught by
Albert Derolez), and scholarly editing (taught by David Vander Meulen). 

The deadline for application to the program is MONDAY 1 DECEMBER 2014.
Applicants must be doctoral candidates (post-qualifying exams or other
requirements), postdoctoral fellows, or junior (untenured) faculty in
the humanities at a U.S. institution at time of application. For more
