Summer Research Fellowships in Material Culture Studies

The Center for Material Culture Studies annually runs the Delaware Public Humanities Institute (DELPHI). University of Delaware MA and PhD students pursuing material culture-related projects are invited to apply for this fellowship. This past summer, twelve recipients participated in a two-week Institute, June 6 – June 17, 2016, during which they learned a variety of skills for engaging nonspecialists through public speaking and digital media.

Fellows are given $4,500 to facilitate uninterrupted research to bring material culture projects to fruition. This year’s DELPHI will take place from May 30-June 9, 2017. Applications are due by February 17, 2017.
