Subject:    Texas Fellowship Announcement

         The Texas Institute for Literary and Textual Studies
         invites Fellowship Applications
         for its 2010 Summer Symposium on the topic of
         Literature and Religious Conflict in the English Renaissance
         to be held at the University of Texas at Austin
         May 24 through May 27, 2010

The Texas Institute for Literary and Textual Studies is pleased to 
announce its first annual Symposium. Scholars whose research concerns 
any aspect of the Symposium topic are invited to send proposals to the 
Directors of the Institute. (Applicants should feel free to interpret 
both "literature" and "religious conflict" in broad terms.)

TILTS Fellows receive an honorarium of $1,200, and expenses for travel 
as well as for food and lodging during the four-day event (air travel 
and lodging to be booked by the Institute). Fellows are expected to 
produce substantial scholarly essays which, together with other texts 
and materials, will be the focus of presentations and discussions at the 
Symposium. Texas Studies in Literature and Language will publish a 
special issue of selected essays from the Symposium.

Application deadline: October 1, 2009. Applicants must hold the Ph.D. 
and should submit the following, in a single pdf file: (1) a current CV, 
(2) a 200-word abstract, and (3) a three-to-four page, single-spaced 
project description. Successful applicants will be notified after 
November 15, 2009, and will then be asked to develop their proposals 
into essays of 25-30 pages, which must be submitted to the Directors by 
March 1, 2010 for advance circulation among the participants in the 
Symposium.

Address applications to Wayne A. Rebhorn and Frank Whigham, Directors of 
the Texas Institute for Literary and Textual Studies, at
