Giving News

The Harry Ransom Center, a humanities research library and museum at The University of Texas at Austin, has awarded more than 50 research fellowships for 2012–13. The fellowships, funded by individual donors and organizations, support research projects in the humanities that require substantial on-site use of the center’s collections of manuscripts, rare books, film, photography, art and performing arts materials.

The Ransom Center’s donor-funded fellowships support humanities research projects that require substantial on-site use of the center’s manuscripts, rare books, film, photography, art, and performing arts materials.

The scholars, a third of whom will be coming from abroad, will use Ransom Center materials to support projects with such titles as “The Texts of Tennessee Williams: A Study of the Playwright in Manuscript and Print, 1957–1963,” “For Love and Money: Victorian Women Photographers in and Beyond the Studio,” “African London,” “Robert De Niro’s Method: Acting, Agency and Authorship in the New Hollywood (1967–1980),” “How to Revise a True War Story: Tim O’Brien’s Fiction and the Process of Textual Production” and “Beautiful Chaos: Music, Pantomime, and Freedom in the French Enlightenment.”

“Support of scholarly research is a primary goal of the Ransom Center,” says director Thomas F. Staley. “With what has become one of the largest fellowship programs of its kind, we encourage scholars from around the world to make new discoveries about the writers and artists who have shaped our culture.”

The fellowships range from one to three months in duration, offering $3,000 per month. Travel stipends and dissertation fellowships are also awarded. With the exception of those selected for dissertation fellowships, fellows are postdoctoral or independent scholars with a substantial publication record.

Donors include the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Hobby Family Foundation, Dorot Foundation, American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies, and others.
