Call for Applications: Award for Research in Black Print Culture

The Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library at Emory
University in Atlanta, Georgia, is accepting applications for funding to
travel to the Library and utilize its holdings. We offer awards and
fellowships in five main collecting areas: English-language literature,
poetry, African American history and culture, Southern history and culture,
and modern politics, as well as subject specific funding.

Of particular note is the recently established Award for Research in Black
Print Culture. Funded by Rose Library curator Randall K. Burkett and his wife,
Nancy, the award supports researchers exploring the Rose Library's holdings of
rare manuscript, ephemeral, photographic, and print materials produced by and
for African Americans. The award is designed to encourage research and writing
on the history and significance of black printing, authorship, and publishing.
Stipend up to $1,000 annually.
