We’re proud to announce that PhD Candidate Eva Gratta has won an inaugural New-York Historical Society Graduate
Archival Research Fellowship!
The New-York Historical Society and the Graduate Center are jointly co-sponsoring these fellowships in order to provide qualified graduate students an opportunity to work on projects (related to the student’s own research agenda) that process, describe, and help create the historical record based on primary source materials. While the rich and diverse collections of the N-YHS span the 17th through the 20th centuries and embrace the national as well as the local, the New York Historical Society is offering CUNY Fellows projects in the following areas: 18th-19th century family libraries; the fine and decorative arts; travel literature; business and advertising ephemera; family papers and records; business organizations; and historic photographs from the mid-19th
century up to the present. Archival media include rare books, printed ephemera, digital collections, manuscripts and archives, and original iconographic materials.
Congratulations to Eva!
