The new Center will draw upon the New-York Historical’s experience and expertise in scholarly and cultural programming and will prepare new cadres of historians for work in museums and centers for culture while promoting new scholarship, exhibitions, and public programming in the field of women’s history. Consequently, the three Andrew W. Mellon Fellowships in Women’s History will have a unique concentration in public history, enhancing the breadth of the New-York Historical’s existing fellowship program, which each year welcomes seven academic-term scholars and many more short-term fellows. Interns and fellows will have the opportunity to develop new exhibitions, identify and pursue relevant materials and collections that could enhance the New-York Historical’s women’s history holdings; and help organize programs. The Center’s location within a suite of women’s history galleries will encourage and enhance its public orientation.
