The New York Public Library is pleased to offer short-term research fellowships to support graduate-level, post-doctoral, and independent researchers. Individuals needing to conduct on-site research in the Library’s special collections to support projects in the humanities, business, and the fine and performing arts are encouraged to apply.
Fellowship stipends are $1,000 per week for a minimum of two and maximum of four weeks. Each fellow is expected to be in residence at the Library for the duration of their fellowship and to write a blog post for nypl.org about their work with the Library’s collections.
The Manuscripts and Archives Division of The New York Public Library holds over 29,000 linear feet of material in over 5,500 collections, with strengths in the papers and records of individuals, families, and organizations, primarily from the New York region. These collections support research in the political, economic, social, and cultural history of New York and the United States.
The Rare Book Collection contains over 350,000 printed volumes, pamphlets, broadsides, and newspapers, in addition to thousands of pieces of ephemera. It is especially rich in fifteenth century printing, Americana, voyages and travels, early Bibles, and literature.

The Phillips Library at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts is one of the nation’s premiere scholarly collections in American history and literature. Since 2011, it has been virtually closed to scholars as the Museum has undergone extensive renovation. The Peabody Essex Museum has moved most of the collection to the town of Rowley, 16 miles from Salem, and has presented plans to the city of Salem to keep the collection off-site permanently.
Because of public and scholarly concern about this move, the Peabody Essex Museum will convene a public meeting on Thursday, January 11, at 6 p.m. in the Morse Auditorium, 161 Essex Street, Salem, Massachusetts to present their long-term plans for the Phillips Library.

H-SPORT is currently seeking contributions for our Teaching Initiative project. Presently, we are looking for syllabi and assignments that focus on media, literature, philosophy, law, policy, management, sociology, and history of sport. Because we are an interdisciplinary list other categories in the sport-teaching field are also welcome. Our goal with the Teaching Initiative project is to offer a place where instructors and researchers can share information regarding syllabi, course assignments, and reading lists, as well other educational materials related to the sport-teaching field. When submitting syllabi and/or assignments, please include information, such as course name, the level of the course (undergraduate or graduate), school name, and in which specific category you would like your syllabus to be listed under (this will help us divide the materials into the specific categories).
Please send submissions as .docx, .doc, or .pdf. In the subject line, include your LAST NAME, TEACHING INITIATIVE, and the SPECIFC CATEGORY YOU WOULD LIKE YOUR SYLLABUS AND/OR ASSIGNMENT TO BE LISTED UNDER. For example, Jones_Teaching Initiative_Media.
Please send all submissions to Tanya Lovejoy (H-Sport List Editor) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The most recent submissions can be accessed on the H-Sport Teaching Initiative page. The syllabi are filed under specific categories on the main Teaching Initiative page. A link to the Teaching Initiative Project page can also be found on the right-hand menu on the main H-Sport page. The H-Sport Teaching Initiative is an ongoing project and H-Sport looks forward to adding other sport-teaching materials in the future.

New Books in Sports (http://newbooksnetwork.com/category/sports/) is currently seeking hosts interested in conducting interviews with authors of new books on sports. Hosting the channel is a good way to bring the work of sports scholars to the attention of large audiences. Interested parties should write Marshall Poe at email@example.com.
New Books in Sports is part of the New Books Network (http://newbooksnetwork.com), a non-profit consortium of 81 author-interview podcasts focused on academic books. The NBN serves 25,000 episodes a day to a worldwide audience. Its mission is outreach and public education.
