Fellowship at Center for Creative Photography, Tucson
The Ansel Adams Fellowship at the Center for Creative Photography
The Center for Creative Photography invites proposals for the 2012 Ansel
Adams Research Fellowship. This program is designed to promote and
support research in the Center's photograph, archive, and library
collections. Among the Center's treasures are the complete archives of
more than forty major photographers including Ansel Adams, Edward
Weston, Wynn Bullock, Aaron Siskind, Frederick Sommer, Louise
Dahl-Wolfe, W. Eugene Smith, and Garry Winogrand. See the Collections
and Archives pages for additional information.
Our goal is to promote new knowledge about photography, photographic
history, and photographic theory. Through the Center's support of
scholars, training of students, and dissemination of new scholarship,
the Center for Creative Photography works to ensure the growth of
photographic history as a discrete field in intellectual history.
Fellowship applications are evaluated within this context.
Ansel Adams Research Fellowships are awarded for projects that require
an extended period of research in the collections of the Center. Awards
in amounts up to $5000 will support two to four weeks of study at the
Center. Multiple awards may be given depending on the applications
received. Scholars at any point in their careers and from any discipline
are encouraged to apply.
Application process: Send a cover letter, curriculum vitae of no more
than four pages, and a brief statement detailing the candidate's
research interests and how they will be advanced by study of CCP's
archives and print collection. Attention will be given to the
candidate's statement concerning the value of the Center's holdings in
investigating those interests. Applications should be emailed to: Cass
Fey, Curator of Education, cassccp.library.arizona.edu.
Applications must be sent via email by October 28, 2011. The Ansel Adams
Research Fellows are announced by the end of December and residencies
may begin in January 2012. Scheduling the residencies must be done with
the approval of Center staff.
