We are accepting applications for a new 2020-21 fellowship program through a collaboration between the Linda Hall Library and the Department of the History and Philosophy of Medicine at the University of Kansas Medical Center. The new History of Science and Medicine Fellowship will support doctoral students whose research examines the intersecting histories of biological and physical sciences, engineering, clinical medicine, and public health. The History of Science and Medicine fellow will spend one month in Kansas City during the 2020-21 academic year conducting research at both institutions. The collections at the University of Kansas Medical Center (KUMC) fall within the administration of the Department of History and Philosophy of Medicine and include the Clendening History of Medicine Library, which houses an extensive collection of Western European medical books from the 15th century to the present. In addition, the KUMC Archives contains an array of institutional and hospital records as well as unique collections in the history of surgery and anesthesia.

Research fellows will participate in a vibrant intellectual community alongside scholars from nearby institutions, including the Linda Hall Library of Science and Engineering, the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC), the University of Kansas (KU), and the Department of the History and Philosophy of Medicine at the University of Kansas Medical Center (KUMC).
