The annual two-month residential fellowship is granted in the memory of David Woodward (1942-2004), a founding editor of The History of Cartography and a Senior Fellow at the Institute for Research in the Humanities (1997-2002). Made possible by the generosity of Arthur and Janet Holzheimer, the fellowship gives scholars an opportunity to research and write on a subject related to the history of cartography in a stimulating academic environment. Preference is given to proposals that complement one of the forthcoming volumes of The History of Cartography, but choice of subject matter is otherwise open. Fellows are provided with office space (when available) and access to all UW-Madison libraries and campus facilities. Participation in the lively, interdisciplinary community of the Institute is strongly encouraged.
Appliations are due December 7, 2012.
