The Danky Fellowship provides $1000 in funds for one individual planning a trip to carry out research using the collections of the Wisconsin Historical Society (please see details of the collections at (http://www.wisconsinhistory.org). Grant money may be used for travel to the WHS, costs of copying pertinent archival resources, and living expenses while pursuing research here. If in residence during the semester, the recipient will be expected to give a presentation as part of the colloquium series of the Center for the History of Print and Digital Culture.
Preference will be given to:
- proposals undertaking research in print culture history
- researchers from outside Madison
- research likely to lead to publication
Prior to applying it is strongly suggested that applicants contact the Wisconsin Historical Society Reference Archivist (phone: 608-264-6460; email:firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss the relevancy of WHS collections to their projects. Historical Society and Center for Print Culture staff may be able to identify potential collections of which you may not otherwise be aware.
