Manuscript Fellowship

TIIS Manuscript Fellowship Program

As in past years, we aim to support faculty who are in the final stages of preparing a manuscript for submission to a press or for publication. The selected manuscripts will be read by three Trinity faculty members and one outside reader, all chosen by the author(s) in consultation with the TIIS Co-Directors. All participants will convene on a Saturday or Sunday to discuss the manuscript during a daylong workshop; readers receive a stipend. All faculty members, regardless of rank or status, are eligible for this fellowship. In keeping with the TIIS mission, we especially encourage the submission of manuscr​ipts that incorporate interdisciplinary approaches, or are aimed at a non-specialist audience.

During AY 2014-15, TIIS will fund up to three workshops per semester. The deadline for submissions for the fall semester will be September 2, the first day of classes. Please submit a one-page proposal outlining your project, plus a timetable for its completion and a list of 5-7 potential readers including both Trinity and off-campus faculty, to Rashana Lord​.
