Call for Artists: Opportunity

The Sallie Bingham Center for Women's History and Culture, part of the
Rare Book, Manuscript, and Special Collections Library at Duke University,
announces the availability of Mary Lily Research Grants for research
travel to our collections.

The Sallie Bingham Center documents the public and private lives of women
through a wide variety of published and unpublished sources. Collections
of personal papers, family papers, and organizational records complement
print sources such as books and periodicals. Particular strengths of the
Sallie Bingham Center are
feminism in the U.S., women's prescriptive
literature from the 19th & 20th centuries, girls' literature, zines,
artist's books by women, gender & sexuality, and the history &
culture of
women in the South.

Mary Lily Research Grants are for undergraduate and graduate students,
faculty, and independent scholars conducting research using collections
held by the Sallie Bingham Center. Grant money may be used for travel,
photocopying, and living expenses while pursuing research at the Rare
Book, Manuscript, and Special Collections Library. Applicants must live
outside of a 50-mile radius from Durham, NC. The maximum award per
applicant is $1,000.

The deadline for application is January 30, 2009, and recipients will be
announced in March 2009. For more information and the application form,
