William Morris Society Fellowship
The Joseph R. Dunlap Memorial Fellowship awarded by the William Morris Society in the United States supports scholarly and creative work about William Morris and may be granted for research and other expenses, including travel to conferences and libraries. Projects may deal with any subject—biographical, literary, historical, social, artistic, political, typographical—relating to Morris. The Society also encourages translations of Morris’s works and the production of teaching materials (lesson plans and course materials) suitable for use at the elementary, secondary, college or adult-education level. Applications are sought from younger members of the Society and from those at the beginning of their careers. Recipients may be from any country, need not have an academic or institutional appointment, and need not hold a Ph.D.
Applicants should send a two-page description of their project, along with a c.v. and at least one letter of recommendation. For a translation project, please submit an additional letter from a recognized authority able to certify the applicant’s competence in both languages. For teaching materials, we ask also for a cover letter describing the ways in which the materials might be used in learning situations. The Society would be pleased to publish any completed translation or teaching materials on its website, but this is not a requirement.
The deadline for applications is 15 December 2013. Applications are judged by committee, and the decision announced by 15 January 2014. Send applications to:
Elizabeth Carolyn Miller
Department of English
University of California, Davis
One Shields Avenue
Davis CA 95616
Submissions should be sent via email, with supporting documents sent by e-mail as well (letters of recommendation should be emailed separately by the recommender). Although recipients are not required to be members of the William Morris Society, we encourage those applying to join and to share in the benefits of membership.
