Fall 2018 CHSTM Fellows Select Drexel Archives for Research
October 3, 2018
For the second time this year, two research fellows appointed by the Consortium for History of Science, Technology and Medicine (CHSTM) opted to use Drexel University’s archives in their research.
Ellery Foutch, assistant professor in American Studies at Middlebury College, will use the Drexel collections for her research on The Artists' Models: Natural history specimens and their illustrations.
Vivek Neelankantan, visiting assistant professor of history at Universitas Airlangga, will use the Drexel collections for his research on Southeast Asia and the Beginnings of the Primary Health Paradigm, 1948-1978.
Foutch and Neelankantan will each receive a small stipend to use Drexel’s collections, and have one year in which to visit these collections and conduct their research.
Each year, the CHSTM – of which Drexel University is a member – holds two semi-annual rounds of competitive research fellowships for scholars who would like to use collections from member institutions.
CHSTM is currently accepting applications for 2019/2020 fellows in the history of science, technology and medicine. Opportunities include:
- Short-term Research Fellowships
- Dissertation Fellowships
- NEH Postdoctoral Fellowship
- Fellows in Residence
Applications for 2019-2020 must be submitted online by December 18, 2018.

The Consortium for History of Science, Technology and Medicine brings together educational, cultural and scientific institutions to promote public and academic understanding of the history of science, technology and medicine. The Consortium awards fellowships for researchers, produces events for academics and for the public and provides online resources for teaching, learning and research. The Consortium for History of Science, Technology and Medicine was founded in 2007, originally as a consortium of cultural and educational institutions across the Philadelphia area. The Consortium has since expanded to include leading institutions across the United States and Canada. The Consortium helps to make the collections and scholarly resources of the member institutions more broadly available for research in the history of science, technology and medicine.
