Research in the Collection: A Kessler Conversation with the 2020-2021 Research Fellows

This special edition of the Fall 2020 Kessler Conversations will be an engaging conversation with our current cohort of Kessler Research Fellows. The conversation will cover the Fellows' current research projects and how they connect the 500-year-old treasures of the Richard C. Kessler Reformation Collection to the issues facing contemporary communities and congregations.

Pitts Theology Library at Emory University invites applications every Spring to serve as a Richard C. Kessler Reformation Collection Research Fellows. Kessler Research Fellows will work virtually for a full academic year studying a single item or a single aspect of the Richard C. Kessler Collection. While residence in Atlanta is not required, each fellow will make a Fall and Spring visit to Pitts Theology Library to be in residence for 3 days each visit. During each visit, the fellow will have access to the Kessler Collection for research and will offer one public lecture and conduct one research workshop. During the visit, the fellow will also meet with graduate students and library staff to discuss research methods. Throughout the academic year, the fellow will meet virtually with the Director of Pitts Theology Library and the Rare Book Cataloger to discuss research progress. The fellowship will work toward the creation of detailed metadata for the item(s) studied, a research-quality essay to be published by the library, and a digital exhibition to be hosted by the library.
