As part of the Society’s mission to undertake research on our Collections and make them more accessible to a wider audience, in collaboration with Wiley, we have awarded three new Research Fellowships which provide researchers with access to the Wiley Digital Archive platform.
The Fellowship projects cover a wide range of topic areas, advancing knowledge and providing new insights on a number of key themes, including the science and technology of exploration, highlighting hidden and forgotten histories, and exploring under-researched parts of the Collections.
The projects supported are:
Felix de Montety (Université Grenoble Alpes): Mountain cartography and the languages of exonymy
Ellen Smith (University of Leicester): Searching for Cinchona: reconstructing the experiences of Minna Markham in South America, India and Sri Lanka
Kate Simpson (University of Sheffield): The spatial poetics of artefacts: David Livingstone’s expeditionary collecting
Over the year of the Fellowships, we will be sharing more information about each of the projects, new materials that are found, and how the digital archive is enabling new kinds of scholarship.
The Society partnered with Wiley Digital Archives on an extensive digitisation programme of substantial parts of our pre-1945 Collections. The Wiley Digital Archive enables digital access to a wide variety of published and unpublished material, revolutionising access to our Collections and creating new pathways for interdisciplinary research and education, while preserving them for years to come.
