Fellowships Now Available for Doctoral Study: Information in Society
With grant support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the University of Illinois Graduate School of Library and Information Science is recruiting a select group of doctoral students interested in pursuing the study of information in society, in its historical, political-economic, and/or policy dimensions. Your interests may lie in any part of the emerging field of information studies, such as practices of information organization, library history, the political economy of information, or community information systems; your academic background may be in library and information science, history, law, communications or other fields–as long as you share our commitment to engaging deeply with the processes that structure information in society. Fellowship recipients should be seeking to prepare for careers as faculty members in schools of library and information science.
Apply by January 5, 2010 to begin study in Fall 2010
