The American Philosophical
Society’s Library & Museum announces its latest round of fellowship
The American Philosophical
Society’s Library & Museum is excited to announce that Kacey
Stewart, a PhD candidate in English at the University of Delaware, has received
a Barra Foundation Fellowship. These funding opportunities provide 1- to 3-
months of support for researchers in residence and are open to scholars
in all fields who show
a demonstrated need to use the Library & Museum’s collections for their
fellowship will allow Kacey to further his project, “Sensing Place: Data
Representation in Early America.”
We look forward
to working with Kacey and learning more about his research efforts. As the
Society's Librarian Patrick Spero said, “We are thrilled to welcome a new class
of fellows to the Library & Museum. Our fellows conduct cutting edge
research in a wide range of fields, and every year they make new discoveries in
our collections that change what we know about our past.”
The American Philosophical Society (APS), the oldest learned society
in the United States, was founded in 1743 by Benjamin Franklin for the purposes
of “promoting useful knowledge.” In the 21st century, it serves to advance
knowledge and promote scholarship in the humanities and social, mathematical,
life, and physical sciences. Members of the Society are elected from among the
most eminent scholars and civic and cultural leaders in North America and
abroad. More than 100 living APS Members are Nobel laureates.
The APS Library & Museum collections make it among the premier
institutions for documenting and exhibiting the history of the American
Revolution and founding, the history of science from Newton to NASA, Native
American languages and culture, and the development of American anthropology.
The Library houses over 14 million manuscripts, 275,000 volumes and bound periodicals,
250,000 images, fine art, and other objects. Museum exhibitions interpret these
extensive collections for the regional, national, and international visitors
who come to Philadelphia’s historic district. In doing so, the exhibitions aim
to nurture the spirit of inquiry, promote critical thinking, and engender
enthusiasm for object-based learning by using primary source documents and
authentic objects. The Library & Museum also hosts a robust fellowship
program, offering over 25 short-term and 10 long-term fellowships each year to
scholars using its collections.
You can connect with the APS by
subscribing to our e-newsletter or by following us on social media to receive
updates on our fellows (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter). For a full list of this year’s fellowship recipients, click here.
