From our friends across the Atlantic:
William H. and Kathryn E. Brackney Angus Travel Bursary
The Angus Library and Archive at Regent’s Park College, University of Oxford, is the leading world-class collection for the study of Baptist and Nonconformist history and heritage. It comprises over 70,000 items relating to the life and history of Baptists, many of which are rare and unique. The Angus is connected to the Centre for Baptist Studies, a research centre of Regent’s Park College which aims to develop research and scholarship in Baptist history and theology and to relate Baptist history and theology to Baptist life and principles today.
Scholars from all over the world use the Angus Library and Archive for a wide range of research. While certain items in the collection have been digitised and are available online, the vast majority require scholars to visit in person to be able to access them.
We are, therefore, delighted to invite applications for the new William H. and Kathryn E. Brackney Angus Travel Bursary to allow more scholars to access material relevant to their research in person. During the 2022-2023 academic year, the bursary is worth £1000.
