Kentucky Historical Society Churchill Weavers Fellowship

The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) is home to one of the finest weaving archives in the nation—the Churchill Weavers collection. Comprised of more than 30,000 handwoven textiles and related weaving and business records, this collection promises to enrich many areas of scholarship, especially those related to labor history, material culture, the history of 20th century capitalism, and the history of Appalachia.

The Kentucky Historical Society Foundation has provided KHS short-term fellowship funds (one- to four-week residencies at $400.00/week) to assist researchers with travel and living expenses while using the Churchill Weavers collection. Applications are welcome from independent scholars, college and university teachers, museum professionals, graduate students and scholars working in other related disciplines. Please email applications to Dr. Amanda L. Higgins, Amanda.higgins@ky.gov, by September 1, 2016.
