The Delaware Art Museum and the University of Delaware Library invite applications from scholars focused on the Pre-Raphaelites and their general circle, for a one month fellowship.

This is an excellent opportunity to work with primary sources such as Rossetti's Lady Lilith (left), and the Mark Samuels Lasner Collection at the U Delaware Library.

The Pre-Raphaelite fellowship can come with up to 3,000 dollars and housing. Although the fellowship is intended for “significant research in the lives and works of the Pre-Raphaelites and their friends, associates, and followers,” applications focused on “the Pre-Raphaelite movement and related topics in relation to Victorian art and literature, and cultural or social history” will also be considered.

They especially encourage “Projects which provide new information or interpretation—dealing with unrecognized figures, women writers and artists, print culture, iconography, illustration, catalogues of artists’ works, or studies of specific objects” and those “which take into account transatlantic relations between Britain and the United States.”

Past projects have included a monograph on Dante Gabriel Rossetti, and research for a biography of William Allingham.
