Pittfilm Travel to Collections Grant, University of Pittsburgh, Deadline: October 15

The University of Pittsburgh’s Slavic, Central Asian, and Eastern and Central European video and DVD collection is the leading collection outside of the Russian Federation, with a holding of more than 6,000 items, including extensive holdings in Russian, Slovak, and Central Asian cinema. Online information about the Pitt collection, which is non-circulating, is available at www.pitt.edu/~slavic/video/index.html. The 2009-2010 Pittfilm Travel to Collections Grant solicits applications from scholars with developed research projects that would benefit from on-site access to this collection. The selection committee would look favorably on those applications that include a research presentation as a public lecture. Travel awards are $1,200 each. Interested scholars should send an electronic copy of a one-page, single-spaced project description (including preferred dates and a list of anticipated research materials in the Pitt collection) to Prof. Vladimir Padunov at padunov@pitt.edu with the subject heading “Pittfilm Travel-to-Collections Grant.” The deadline for applications is October 15.
