Multiple Narratives in Plains Indian ledger Art: The Mark Lansburgh Collection
Short-Term Visiting Fellowships
The Leslie Center is offering five, short-term visiting fellowships to participate in an Institute devoted to the study of the Mark Lansburgh collection of Plains Indian art, which was acquired by Dartmouth College in 2007. Comprising more than one hundred nineteenth-century drawings and including works by leading artists such as Howling Wolf, Chief Killer, and Frank Henderson, the Lansburgh collection is one of the most important ledger art collections in existence. The core of the Institute will be a weekly seminar, held on Friday afternoons and directed by Joyce M. Szabo of the University of New Mexico. The Institute will run concurrently with a major exhibition of the collection at Dartmouth's Hood Museum of Art. Joe D. Horse Capture, Associate Curator at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, will serve as guest curator of the exhibition.
Short-term fellows will have on-line access to the drawings, will have the opportunity to study the drawings first-hand, and will make a presentation of their research at one of the seminars. The Leslie Center will provide an honorarium of $2,000, round trip travel to Dartmouth, and lodging from Wednesday to Friday evening inclusive. In addition, fellows are expected to submit an essay on their seminar topic, which will be considered for publication in a book to be published by the University of Oklahoma Press. An additional stipend of $1,500 will be paid for finished essays submitted and accepted by June 1, 2011.
Preference will be given to scholars in early stages of their careers.
Please send letters application, accompanied by a CV and a two-page description of a research project to be pursued during the Institute, to the Institute director: COLIN.CALLOWAY@DARTMOUTH.EDU by December 1, 2009.
