The John W. Kluge Center at the Library of Congress invites qualified scholars to apply for a research fellowship based on the Alan Lomax Collection 

The Jon B Lovelace Fellowship is offering a stipend of $4,200 per month for up to eight months for residential research at the US Library of Congress into the Alan Lomax Collection.

Applicants may be of any nationality. A PhD or equivalent qualification is preferred. The next deadline for applications is 1 February 2017.

Applications must be submitted by the deadline via the Kluge Center's online application system. The system, plus full details of the fellowship and its requirements, can be found at the fellowship's website.

The fellowship programme, established 2015, supports research projects in many disciplines including linguistics and movement analysis, with particular emphasis on the traditional music, dance, and narrative of the United States, England, Scotland, Ireland, Italy, Spain, and the Caribbean.

The Alan Lomax Collection is a major collection of ethnographic field audio recordings, motion pictures, photographs, manuscripts, correspondence and other materials relating to traditional music and other expressive genres. The material was collected by Lomax (pictured) in many parts of the world, particularly the United States, Europe and the Caribbean.
