New archive scholarship seeks to write more inclusive stories of craftsmanship

The Center for Craft Archive Fellowship will promote archival research on underrepresented and non-dominant craft histories in the United States, such as feminist, intersectional, queer, black, indigenous, Latino, Asian American, and Pacific Islander communities, and other communities. The Fellowship will support a range of scholars, including independent scholars and artists, from emerging to established levels of experience.

Six Center for Craft Archive Fellows will receive a $5,000 grant to conduct research in the archives of their choice. Fellows can engage in conventional and innovative approaches to archival research. In order to make the research accessible to a wide audience, fellows will participate in a joint virtual program presented by the Center for Craft and the American Craft Council and will have the opportunity to publish in a special issue on hyperallergy in summer 2023 .

An information session will be held for potential applicants on May 31, 3-4 p.m. ET (virtual). The session is free, but registration is required here.

Application deadline: June 27, 2022
