[May 21st 2013]
This Symposium of leading Kipling scholars is a landmark event in Kipling studies, which will inaugurate a renewal of critical and scholarly interest in Kipling's writings, at present somewhat neglected in the USA, with some notable exceptions. Because of the high cost of transatlantic travel, the Kipling Society is making available a limited number of Travel Bursaries, to be awarded at the Society's sole discretion, to help Kipling scholars and students of Kipling in Europe who wish to attend the event but cannot do so without financial assistance.
Applicants must be able to demonstrate (1) a serious interest in Kipling, (2) a proven record of scholarship and/or publication (e.g. authorship of a book on Kipling or Kipling-related subject, contributions to the Kipling Journal, contributions to the New Readers’ Guide, doctoral thesis on Kipling or Kipling-related subject, or other substantial Kipling research, and (3) on-going commitment to advancing work in Kipling studies.
They must also be in genuine need of support in order to meet the costs of attending the Symposium.
For further information and to apply for a Travel Bursary, email Jan Montefiore the Symposium Director at firstname.lastname@example.org by June 20th 2013.
