The 2024 Craft Archive Fellowship will foster archival research on underrepresented and non-dominant craft histories in the United States, such as feminist, intersectional, queer, Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian American and Pacific Islander, and other communities and approaches that may not be specifically listed here.
Applications are due by 12/06/2023
The goals of the fellowship include:
- To encourage and support the research and writing of historically underrepresented and non-dominant American craft histories
- To expand understanding of where and how archival craft research can be conducted
- To raise awareness of the importance of craft research
Eligibility includes, but is not limited to:
- Proposals are welcome from a range of emerging to established scholars, including artists researchers. Funding is intended to support independent research and is not intended to support research conducted on behalf of an institution, organization, or 501c3.
- Archives are repositories for and collections of primary source materials where people can conduct research. However, the histories preserved and stored within institutional libraries and archives often reflect the dominant cultural narratives, limiting the types of histories that can be told. Therefore, this fellowship takes an expansive understanding of what an archive is, to delimit what an archive can be.
- Applicants must be:
- 21 years of age or older
- Eligible to receive taxable income in the U.S.
