The McGill Library-Raymond Klibansky Research Travel Grant is intended to enable researchers from outside the Montreal area, both established scholars and graduate students, to work on a research project that requires access to material held, in whole or in part, in the Rare Books and Special Collections Department of the McGill University Library.
Particular consideration will be given to those whose research requires them to consult The Raymond Klibansky Collection of over 7000 titles that reflect Professor Klibansky's intellectual interests, from his early work on medieval thought to his engagement with the concept of "tolerance" and its importance in the post-Second World War World.
The research should require a stay of a minimum of two weeks.
The McGill Library-Klibansky Research Travel Grant, with a value of up to $4000.00 (Cdn), is open on a competitive basis.
Applicants must provide:
- A 750 work maximum description of the intended project, which must include a description of the material at RBSC which will be consulted;
- A current curriculum vitæ;
- The dates they intend to work in the library.
Each successful recipient of the grant is required to submit a written report of their time at McGill that will be published on the grant's website, and potentially give a talk about their work. The recipient will also be expected to acknowledge the library's support in future presentations of the work resulting from research undertaken at McGill.
Applications should be sent to: rarebooks.library [at] mcgill.ca (subject: McGill%20Raymond%20Klibansky%20Collection%20Research%20Grant)
DEADLINE: December 31, 2019
