The J.B. Harley Research Fellowships in the History of Cartography

The Harley Fellowships – the only one of their kind in Europe – provide support for those working on the history of cartography, from any discipline, doing the equivalent of post-graduate level work in the historical map collections of the United Kingdom.  Awards range up to £2000. Website:  http://www.maphistory.info/harley.html

The J.B. Harley Fellowships were set up in London in 1992 in memory of Brian Harley (1932-91). Prof. Harley was founding co-editor of the History of Cartography Project and the leading theoretical thinker in the field.

Applications are invited from anyone pursuing advanced research in the history of cartography, irrespective of nationality, discipline or profession, who wishes to work in London and other parts of the United Kingdom. While independent of them, the fellowships are run in association with the four institutions in the London area that, together, hold the greatest number of early maps, namely: British LibraryThe National ArchivesRoyal Museums Greenwich and Royal Geographical Society.

The closing date for applications is 1st november.  The Fellowship website has an application page that should provide all the necessary information as well as answering many frequently asked questions:   http://www.maphistory.info/application.html .  Please indicate in your application if you are a postgraduate or an early career researcher within five years of completion of your PhD.

It would be helpful if you could say where you saw this notice.  Please forward to others who might be interested.
