The Edward Worth Library, Dublin, is offering two research fellowships (duration one month each), to be held in 2017, to encourage research relevant to its collections.
The collection is particularly strong in three areas: early modern medicine, early modern history of science and, given that Worth was a connoisseur book collector interested in fine bindings and rare printing, the History of the Book. Research does not, however, have to be restricted to these three key areas.
The closing date is Monday 3 April 2017.
March 1st deadline for next round of SIS grants.
The Scientific Instrument Society awards small research grants up to £500. The grants are intended to support new research into the history of scientific instruments based on archival materials and/or museum collections. Grants may be used to cover any reasonable costs of research including travel and photography.
The Resources menu of the HSTM Network of Ireland website now contains the beginnings of what we believe will be a great tool for researchers in the History of Science, Technology and Medicine both in Ireland and abroad.
Currently we have pages containing information about the collections at the Edward Worth Library and the Royal Irish Academy and the slides from James Sumner’s fascinating lecture on teaching history of science to science undergraduates from the HSTM Network of Ireland’s 2015 conference.
We are happy to receive submissions of any resources you wish to share with us and we particularly encourage libraries and archives to participate. In time we hope to link to as many institutions, libraries, and archives with valuable resources on the history of science, medicine, and technology as possible to encourage more researchers in these subject areas in Ireland and abroad.
