Applications for the 2015 Le Guin Feminist Science Fiction Fellowship are being taken until October 1.
The Le Guin Feminist Science Fiction Fellowship encourages research within collections in the area of feminist science fiction, supporting travel for the purpose of research on, and work with, the papers of feminist science fiction authors housed in the University of Oregon Libraries Special Collections and University Archives (SCUA).
SCUA houses the papers of authors Ursula K. Le Guin, Joanna Russ, Kate Wilhelm, Suzette Haden Elgin, Sally Miller Gearhart, Kate Elliot, Molly Gloss, Laurie Marks, and Jessica Salmonson, along with Damon Knight.
These short-term research fellowships are open to undergraduates, master’s and doctoral students, postdoctoral scholars, college and university faculty at every rank, and independent scholars working in feminist science fiction. In 2015, $3,000 will be awarded to conduct research within these collections.
