Summer Research on Storify

Exploring materials for child readers at the American Antiquarian Society, June 2015 (photo via @AmAntiquarian).

With the support of two weeks paid research leave from Bryn Mawr College Special Collections, I was able to participate in two research seminars over the past month that will help me move forward my dissertation research into new projects (more on those soon!)

It’s a significant shift, in some ways, but most of the time it feels like exactly what my particular fellowship set me up for, because of the hybrid nature of my role, in the library, and in an academic department. My fellowship contract even gave me research time — 10 days a year, nothing fancy — but it allowed me to get back to my own projects from time to time, and attend last year’s fantastic AAS summer seminar, “Reading Children.” […]
