The Pre-Raphaelite Fellowship: A Joint Fellowship from the University of Delaware Library and the Delaware Art Museum

The University of Delaware Library, in Newark, Delaware, and the Delaware Art Museum are pleased to offer a joint Fellowship in Pre-Raphaelite studies. This short-term, one-month Fellowship, awarded annually, is intended for scholars conducting significant research in the lives and works of the Pre-Raphaelites and their friends, associates, and followers.  Research of a wider scope, which considers the Pre-Raphaelite movement and related topics in relation to Victorian art and literature, and cultural or social history, will also be considered. 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—are particularly encouraged, as are those which take into account transatlantic relations between Britain and the United States.

The Delaware Art Museum is pleased to offer an annual Curatorial Fellowship. This two-month Fellowship is intended for graduate students working towards a Museum career. This Fellowship honors Alfred Appel, Jr., a leading scholar of American Studies and a collector of modern prints and photographs. In 2016 the Appel Curatorial Fellow will provide research assistance for an exhibition entitled The Book Beautiful, co-curated by Rachael DiEleuterio, Delaware Art Museum Librarian and Archivist, and Margaretta Frederick, Chief Curator and Annette Woolard-Provine Curator of the Bancroft Collection. The exhibition will investigate the trans-Atlantic concept of the ‘complete book’ which was particularly prominent on both continents in the late 19th-early 20th centuries. Examples in which the collaborative process between author, illustrator, bookbinder, and publisher are most clearly articulated will be featured
