Chicago, IL – The Leather Archives & Museum [LA&M] announced the 2013 – 2014 Visiting Scholar Program for the Fall 2013 or Spring 2014 academic terms.  A stipend of $1,000 will be awarded to one recipient scholar to conduct research using the collections of the LA&M.  A travel reimbursement allowance of up to $1,000 will also be provided to the recipient.

The award is available to three types of scholars:

  1. Scholars with academic appointments
  2. Graduate students pursing an MFA or PhD
  3. Independent scholars with an established research agenda

The LA&M is seeking projects that may enhance the institution’s mission to disseminate information to the public about the history of the leather / fetish / BDSM community and its culture.  Toward that end, they are particularly interested in proposals that may provide materials for display in its galleries, as a traveling exhibit or as an online exhibition.

Applications for the program must be postmarked by April 2nd, 2013.  For information on how to apply, please visit the program’s website.
