The Sallie Bingham Center for Women’s History and Culture, part of the
Rubenstein Library at Duke University, announces the availability of Mary
Lily Research Grants for research travel to use our collections:
The Sallie Bingham Center documents the public and private lives of women through a wide variety of published and unpublished sources. Collections of personal papers, family papers, and organizational records complement print sources such as books and periodicals. Particular strengths of the Sallie Bingham Center are feminism in the U.S., women’s prescriptive literature from the 19th & 20th centuries, girls’ literature, zines, artist’s books by women, gender & sexuality, and the history & culture of women in the South.
Mary Lily Research grants are available to any faculty member, graduate or undergraduate student, or independent scholar with a research project
requiring the use of women’s history materials held by the Sallie Bingham
Center. Grant money may be used for travel and living expenses while
pursuing research at the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript
Library. Applicants must live outside of a 100-mile radius from Durham,
NC. The maximum award per applicant is $1,000.
The deadline for application is March 29, 2013 by 5:00 PM EST. Recipients will be announced in April 2013. Grants must be used between May 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014.
