Opportunity Description

The Houghton Library Visiting Fellowships for 2023–2023 at Harvard are now accepting applications. The visiting fellowship program funds academics at various career levels to pursue projects that call for in-depth research on the library’s collections and chances to benefit from staff knowledge and engage in Harvard’s intellectual life.

Houghton offers fellows access to other University libraries and opportunities for information sharing and research promotion through its publications, scholarly initiatives, and public events.

The diversity and depth of Houghton’s holdings may be seen in the recent fellows’ study themes, which cover anything from celebrity pregnancies on the London stage to Iberian chivalric tales to Native American music from the colonial era to the acquisition of Sanskrit manuscripts.
