The RSVP Field Development Grant was 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 grant is intended to support one or a team of researchers in creating resources that will facilitate the work of other scholars in their studies of 19tn-century British newspapers and periodicals.
Application deadline for awards beginning in 2019: March 15, 2018
Award notification: Not later than May 15, 2018
The Research Society for Victorian Periodicals (RSVP) intends to grant one RSVP Field-Development Grant to a single researcher or a team of researchers pursuing a project that would facilitate research by other scholars. Two smaller awards may be given if the right projects present themselves. The amount of the award will be up to $27,500.
Eligible projects must articulate how the proposed resource will enhance the ability of other scholars to conduct significant research in the history of nineteenth-century British newspapers and periodicals. Examples of eligible projects include, but are not limited to, collaborative projects to produce print or digital publications; demonstration projects that make use of new technologies; research tools such as indices and bibliographies; digitization efforts; and workshops or seminars that address research methods for the study of periodicals.
Eligible projects must involve substantial research in nineteenth-century primary sources, whether those sources appear in print, manuscript, or digital facsimile.
An application must designate a principal investigator to coordinate the award. Applicants may be based anywhere in the world
