This year, Special Collections and Archives has two 10-week summer fellowships for Furman undergraduates. These competitive fellowships sponsored by Carolyn ’67 and Joseph ’68 Warden will allow students to perform original research using materials in Special Collections and Archives for a research or creative project of their own design.

Chrissy Hicks ’20 is a future Music major and classicist who will be working on our growing collection of medieval music manuscripts: studying the background of manuscript production, the uses of medieval written music, and looking closely at our manuscripts to confirm or expand their present descriptions and what we know about them.

 

 

Emory Conetta ’18 is an Art History and Studio Art double major who will be looking at our collection of Furman and Greenville Woman’s College scrapbooks from the early 20th century in a project that will study young women’s identity and practices of keeping and making memory in Greenville and the South. One of her aims is to start making her own scrapbook as a response to what she discovers, and this summer fellowship will form the basis of her year-long senior studio art project, which will culminate in a gallery show next spring.
