Rare Book School's Andrew W. Mellon Society of Fellows in Critical
Bibliography (SoFCB) invites applications for its 2020-21 cohort of
junior fellows. The deadline is 1 November 2019.

Continuing the work of the Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship in Critical
Bibliography (2012-17), this scholarly society works to advance the
study of texts, images, and artifacts as material objects through
capacious, interdisciplinary scholarship and to enrich humanistic
inquiry and education by identifying, mentoring, and training promising
early-career scholars. Junior Fellows will be encouraged and
supported in integrating the methods of critical bibliography into their
teaching and research, fostering collegial conversations about
historical and emerging media across disciplines and institutions, and
sharing their knowledge with broader publics.

The fellowship includes tuition waivers for two Rare Book School
courses, as well as funding for Junior Fellows to participate in the
Society's annual meeting and orientation. Additional funds are available
for fellows to organize symposia at their home institutions, and fellows
will have the option of attending a bibliographical field school to
visit libraries, archives, and collections in a major metropolitan
area. After completing two years in good standing as Junior Fellows,
program participants will have the option to become Senior Fellows in
the Society.

The Society is committed to supporting diversity and to advancing the
scholarship of outstanding persons of every race, gender, sexual
orientation, creed, and socioeconomic background, and to enhancing the
diversity of the professions and academic disciplines it represents,
including those of the professoriate, museums, libraries, archives,
public humanities, and digital humanities. We warmly
encourage prospective applicants from a wide range of disciplines,
institutions, and areas of expertise.
