pleased to announce a competition for one pre-doctoral visiting
fellowship in nineteenth-century American Literature for Spring 2009.
The Lillian Gary Taylor Fellowship provides a $5,000 stipend, a

Small Special Collections Library, as well as the larger U.Va.
Library.  Fellows may choose to conduct research at the Institute from
a period of one to three months, between February and May 2009.  In

To apply, please submit a cover letter describing the research to be
conducted at the Institute, including specific reference to rare and
unique materials housed in the Special Collections Library; a c.v.; a
transcript; one letter of recommendation; and one writing sample.
Special consideration will be given to projects that focus on Edgar A.
Poe, whose life and work will be the subject of a major exhibit to
open at the Harrison Institute in March 2009.

Please make three copies of the application and submit them by postal
mail to:
