Leave a comment

The Research Society for Victorian Periodicals invites applications for three funding opportunities:

Field development grant

This enables researchers to form collaborations and work on projects that advance the field of periodical studies, by enhancing the ability of other scholars to conduct research in the history of 19th century British newspapers and periodicals.

Ashgate travel awards

These aim to help defray the cost of travel to the society’s annual conference for graduate members of the society.

Linda H Peterson fellowship

This supports the study of any aspects of the periodical press in any of its forms, and may range from Britain to countries within and outside the Empire, where British magazines and newspapers were bought, sold and read during the 19th century.

The closing date for all applications is 1 Feb 2016.
