Bodleian Libraries Visiting Fellows Programme for research using Special Collections
The Bodleian Libraries run a Visiting Fellows Programme that gives scholars from outside the University the opportunity to carry out periods of research into Bodleian Special Collections material. As part of the programme there are two fellowship schemes for research into any topic and in any field using the Special Collections, the Humfrey Wanley Fellowships and the Sassoon Visiting Fellowships.
The Latin American Centre and the LAC Library wish to draw these fellowship opportunities to the attention of potential visiting scholars who are interested in working with the wealth of Special Collections material held by the Bodleian Libraries in the field of Latin American Studies and History.
Once in Oxford, there would be further opportunities to lead a discussion at the Latin American History seminar series at the Centre and to learn more about the exciting Latin American research taking place across the University.
For further information about the Fellowship Programme, please follow the links below.
If you would like to have an informal discussion about the Fellowship Programme, please contact the LAC Librarian, Frank Egerton (email@example.com) or the Latin American Centre Administrator, Lucy Driver (firstname.lastname@example.org), in the first instance.
