Exciting fellowship to promote research in the Methodist and Wesleyan traditions
12 Oct 2015
Scholarly access to the internationally renowned University of Manchester Methodist Archives at the John Rylands Library
Applications are welcome for the John Rylands Research Institute/Manchester Wesley Research Centre Joint Visiting Fellowship.
This exciting fellowship aims to promote research in the Methodist and Wesleyan traditions by facilitating scholarly access to the internationally renowned University of Manchester Methodist Archives held at the John Rylands Library, part of the University of Manchester Library and Manchester Wesley Research Centre (MWRC) and Nazarene Theological College (NTC) libraries, based at the College’s Didsbury campus.
Dr Cindy Alders, Joint Fellowship Holder 2015, said: “The opportunity to spend extended time with both manuscript and print sources at the Rylands was incredibly valuable, and I think I have made significant strides toward understanding the lives and experiences of Methodist children.”
The John Rylands Research Institute is a unique partnership led by the Faculty of Humanities and the University of Manchester Library. Humanities scholars, scientists, curators, conservators and digital imaging specialists are brought together to uncover, explore, unravel and reveal hidden ideas and knowledge contained within the Library’s world-leading Special Collections.
The Institute in partnership with MWRC have announced a second call for a Joint Visiting Research Fellowship to promote research in the Methodist and Wesleyan traditions. The Fellowship offers free accommodation for up to six weeks at NTC, subject to terms and conditions, and a bursary of up to £150 per week to cover travel and living expenses during the Fellowship.
Applications for the Fellowship are due by Monday 30 November 2015.
