Etherington Art Centre and

The Isabel Bader Fellowship in Textile Conservation and Research
supports the study, care and treatment of Canadian historical
costume. Through the generous support of Dr. Isabel Bader, the
Fellowship links two unique resources at Queen's University: the
Queen's University Collection of Canadian Dress at the Agnes
Etherington Art Centre, and the Master of Art Conservation Program,
Canada's only graduate degree in conservation theory and treatment.

The Fellowship provides an exciting opportunity for you to pursue
your own research project in the area of textile conservation and/or
costume history using the Queen's University Collection of Canadian
Dress. Your project will be supported by a conservation intern
working under your supervision in the investigation and treatment of
selected objects. You will also have access to the well-equipped
textile laboratory in the Master of Art Conservation Program and
opportunities to engage and share your expertise with the students
through lectures, seminars and/or workshops.

Terms: One $12,000 Fellowship is awarded for a three-month residency
at Queen's University (plus up to $2,000 for research expenses). The
Fellowship begins in January 2015. The Fellow is responsible for
