The New York State Archives is now accepting applications for their Larry J. Hackman Research Residency Program, which supports advanced work on New York State history, government, or public policy using historical records in the State Archives.
The onsite program is open to faculty and graduate students in the humanities and social, natural, and life sciences, public historians, and teachers. The program honors the New York State Archivist who managed the dramatic development of the State Archives between 1981 and 1995.
Previous Residency participants have included academic and public historians, graduate students, independent researchers and writers, and primary and secondary school teachers. Projects involving innovative uses of the Archives, such as research for multimedia projects, exhibits, and websites, are welcomed. The topic or area of research must draw on government records in the New York State Archives.
Preference will be given to projects that:
- have application to enduring public policy issues, particularly in New York State
- rely on records that have been little used and are not available electronically or on microfilm
- have a high probability of publication or other public dissemination
The deadline to apply is January 15th, 2022. For more information or to apply, click here.
