Five scholars from the United Kingdom will conduct research at the Ransom Center as part of the 2016-2017 International Placement Scheme (IPS) administered and funded by the UK’s Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).
The AHRC provides residential fellowships to doctoral students and early-career researchers from the United Kingdom to study at international libraries and research institutions. The Ransom Center is one of seven host institutions, including China’s Shanghai Theatre Academy, the Huntington Library, Japan’s National Institutes for the Humanities, Library of Congress, the Smithsonian Institution, and the Yale Center for British Art.
The AHRC’s program provides scholars with access to renowned research collections and expertise; enhances the depth, range, and quality of research activities; and enables networking with other international scholars.
The AHRC recently announced the names of this year’s fellowship recipients, including five academics who will conduct research at the Ransom Center for residences of two or three months.
These individuals will join more than 75 scholars who will visit the Ransom Center in the coming year as part of its 2016-2017 fellowship program.
