The Delaware Art Museum is home to the most important collection of Pre-Raphaelite art in the United States.

With comprehensive holdings in books, periodicals, electronic resources and microforms, the University of Delaware Library is a major resource for the study of literature and art. The Special Collections Department contains material related to the Pre-Raphaelites who are also well-represented in the Mark Samuels Lasner Collection of Victorian books, manuscripts and artworks.

Applications need to be received by Nov. 1. The appointment of the successful candidate is expected to be announced on Dec. 2. 

Advertisements announcing the fellowship are circulated on Internet mailing lists and published in the Chronicle of Higher Education and the Times Literary Supplement. More information and an application form are available online.
