The L.M. Montgomery Institute (LMMI), University of Prince Edward Island, invites scholars active in research related to the work and life of L.M. Montgomery to submit an application for the L.M. Montgomery Visiting Scholar-Program (1 July 2009- 30 June 2010).
The scholar will undertake or complete a scholarly project that advances our understanding and knowledge of Montgomery and her work. Innovative projects which serve to disseminate and extend knowledge about Montgomery are of special interest. The scholar will also be invited to contribute to planning and organizing the LMMI biennial conference in 2010 and will be invited to make a presentation at the conference. For the duration of the term, the scholar will represent LMMI at selective events and participate in the LMMI Committee (by tele-conference). While the scholar will visit LMMI, it is recognized that the visiting scholar may wish to undertake much of the project outside of Prince Edward Island. (It is understood that this position may be held in conjunction with other positions in other provinces or countries). The position offers: research assistance, a stipend of $4,800.00, a travel budget of $4,000.00 and the use of the LMMI office and research room.
Consideration will be given to university-affiliated and independent scholars who have a current research project. In your letter please explain why you are interested in this position and detail in no more than three to four pages the particular project you plan to undertake. Two names of referees (with their contact information) and a CV are also required for the application.
