The LGBTQ Studies section of the Ransom Center’s Guide to the Collections has been recently revised and expanded. Please see: http://www.hrc.utexas.edu/collections/guide/lgtbq/ Since the terms used to describe queer and sexuality-related materials vary by repository and continue to change, an introductory note about research methods to help researchers search the Center’s collection more effectively has been included. Please feel free to email Gabriela Redwine at with suggestions about how to make this portion of the Guide more useful and accessible.
The Center’s research fellowship program is open to all students, faculty, and independent researchers. Applications for 2011-2012 fellowships must be received by Tuesday, February 1, 2011, in order to be considered for the 2011-2012 academic year.
The Harry Ransom Center, an internationally renowned humanities research
library and museum at The University of Texas at Austin, annually awards
over 50 fellowships to support research projects that require substantial
on-site use of its collections. The fellowships support research in all
areas of the humanities, including literature, photography, film, art, the
performing arts, music, and cultural history.
The fellowships range from one to three months, with stipends of $3,000 per
month. Also available are $1,200 to $1,700 travel stipends and dissertation
fellowships with a $1,500 stipend. Complete applications for the 2011-2012
Research Fellowships in the Humanities must be received by February 1, 2011.
