With support provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities, fourteen ten-week summer fellowships were awarded to MA and PhD students in the arts, humanities, and social sciences pursuing research in material culture studies, broadly defined here to include the conservation of objects as well as the scholarly investigation of relationships among people, material processes, and objects.

Fellowship recipients participated in a two-week Institute from May 29 – June 8, during which they learned a variety of skills for engaging non-specialists through public speaking and digital media. Over the course of the summer, participants will work on projects related to material culture studies, preservation studies, and conservation studies.
