Fellowship: The Linda H. Peterson Fellowship (Deadline: 03/15/23)

The Linda H. Peterson Fellowship

The Research Society for Victorian Periodicals

The Linda H. Peterson Fellowship was named after the widely influential Yale professor and longtime RSVP Board member and Vice President, and created with funds from a generous bequest to RSVP by the late Eileen Curran, pioneering researcher and Emerita Professor of English at Colby College. The purpose of the Peterson Fellowship is to support one scholar for four full-time months to enable him or her to conduct a research project on the 19th-century British periodical and newspaper press.

Each year, the Research Society for Victorian Periodicals intends to grant one Linda H. Peterson Fellowship in the amount of $17,500 to a single researcher for a period equivalent to four, full-time months. The Peterson Fellowship supports the study of any aspects of the periodical press in any of its manifold forms, and may range from within Britain itself to the many countries, within and outside of the Empire, where British magazines and newspapers were bought, sold, and read during the “long nineteenth century” (ca. 1780-1914). 

The deadline is March 15th, 2023.
