Richard E. Greenleaf Visiting Library Scholar program, 2014-2015

The Latin American and Iberian Institute (LAII) and the University Libraries' Latin American Collections at the University of New Mexico are pleased to invite applications for the Richard E. Greenleaf Visiting Library Scholar award for 2014-2015. The deadline for applications is Monday, April 21, 2014 by 5:00 PM.

The Richard E. Greenleaf Visiting Library Scholar award provides individuals the opportunity to work as visiting researchers with the University of New Mexico's Latin American library collections, one of the largest and most complete Latin or Spanish American collections in the country. Invited to apply are scholars (U.S. and international), junior faculty (U.S.) and graduate students (U.S.) who specialize in Latin America and Iberia. The award honors Dr. Richard E. Greenleaf, distinguished scholar of colonial Latin American history, and his extensive career in teaching, research, and service.

Recipients of the Richard E. Greenleaf Visiting Library Scholar award will work to promote scholarly use of the Latin American and Iberian collections, focusing on objectives with specific relevance to the UNM Library collections. Scholars will have the opportunity to present their research to faculty and students during their visit to UNM and to submit a brief report. LAII will assist awardees in identifying and networking with UNM scholars in relevant fields.

The LAII will make one long-term (minimum two months) award for $8,000.00 and at least one short-term (minimum two weeks) $2,000.00 awards to help defray travel and housing costs for Albuquerque, New Mexico. Proposed research may be conducted any time between June 1, 2014 and July 31, 2015. The LAII's Operations Committee will award the grants based on the relevance of the proposal to the unique holdings of UNM University Libraries, the merits and significance of the project, and the applicant's scholarly qualifications.

This year special consideration will be given to projects that utilize UNM's Ibarra Collection. The Ibarra collection documents the personal, social, and political life of the Ibarra family and its associates in 18th, 19th and 20th century Venezuela. It consists of photos, book and newspaper publications as well as family, political, and business documents. While most of the material relates primarily to Ibarra family history with photos, documents and charts; some documents also address elements of South American history, including material related to Simon Bolivar. Of particular interest in these manuscripts are hard-to-find Venezuelan newspapers and unpublished poems within the papers of women in the family. For an inventory of the documents in this collection please see:
