Library Scholar Grant recipients announced

Purdue University Libraries recently announced the 2017-18 Library Scholar Grant recipients.

Through the Library Scholars Grant Program, Purdue University Libraries provides grants to untenured and recently tenured Purdue professors to gain access to unique collections needed for their research. Annual awards of up to $5,000 are made possible through an endowment established by the generosity of the 50th anniversary gift of the Class of 1935.

The 2018 recipients:

* Charlene Elsby, assistant professor of philosophy and interim director of the philosophy program in the Department of English and Linguistics at Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne, received $5,000 to travel to the Husserl Archives at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Catholic University, Leuven, Belgium). While there she will continue her research on the roots of phenomenology.   

* Kendall Roark, assistant professor of libraries at the Purdue West Lafayette campus, received $5,000 to conduct archival research within organizational and community collections housed in the Arizona Queer Archives at the University of Arizona.

The archival research that both Elsby and Roark will undertake will be used for a book, a monograph and/or a project based on their research.

The grant program covers the recipients’ expenses associated with transportation, lodging, meals and fees charged by the library or other collection owner.
