The Research Society for Victorian Periodicals (RSVP) is pleased to announce the eighth annual Gale Dissertation Research Fellowship in Nineteenth-Century Media, made possible by the generosity of publisher Gale, part of Cengage Learning, in support of dissertation research that makes substantial use of full-text digitized collections of 19th-century British magazines and newspapers. The competition is designed to support PhD students who are making substantial (and, ideally, innovative) use of digitised collections of nineteenth-century newspapers and periodicals. A prize of $1500 will be awarded, together with one year’s passworded subscription to selected digital collections from Gale, including 19th Century UK Periodicals and 19th Century British Library Newspapers.
Applications are due by February 1, 2017. Full details can be found at http://rs4vp.org/gale-research-fellowship/.
