The Armstrong Browning Library at Baylor University is currently accepting applications for research fellowships for 2021-2022.
The primary focus of the Library's collections are the lives and works of Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning; included are original letters and manuscripts, books from the poets' library, first and successive editions of their poetry, as well as criticism and other secondary works and materials. In addition to the world's largest collection of material on Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning (over 3,400 original documents; plus an additional 8,000 letters of British and American figures and 27,000 books), the library has a growing collection of nineteenth-century women poets, over 1400 nineteenth-century British sermons and religious pamphlets, significant research materials in many areas of Victorian culture, and research holdings of Matthew Arnold, Thomas Carlyle, Ralph Waldo Emerson, George MacDonald, Joseph Milsand, J. H. and F. W. Newman, John Ruskin, Alfred Lord Tennyson, and other Victorian writers. The Milsand Archive contains over 50,000 items, mostly in French, relating to Browning, the Milsand family, and the Anglo-French literary scene from the 1860s to 80s. Additional information about the Library's collections is also available in the online The Brownings: A Research Guide.
