Scholars, educators, and specialists in diverse fields of study are invited to apply for the 2023 Berea College Media Archives Fellowships.
The 2023 Media Archives Fellowship is an outreach program of the Special Collections and Archives (SCA) department of Hutchins Library at Berea College. The program is designed to increase the scholarly use of SCA’s non-commercial audio and video collections.
Within the SCA at Berea College are thousands of audio and video recordings in many formats. These media assets include oral histories, public addresses, music performances, radio broadcasts, and spoken word recordings. The recordings allow a wide range of inquiry from Appalachian religion, linguistics, and traditional folkways to modern environmentalism and social justice issues. Scholars using the Media Archives are also benefited by access to supporting contextual data found in the print, manuscript, archive, and photographic holdings of SCA.
Two fellowships of $1,400 (for a two consecutive week commitment) will be granted in 2023. The monetary stipend is envisioned as partial support for travel and lodging expenses. It is not designed to pay all the researcher’s expenses.
The 2023 Media Archives Fellowships will take place between July 1 2023 and June 30, 2024. To be considered, proposals must be received on or by February 2, 2023. The successful candidates will be notified promptly.
