Visiting Scholars Program

Program Description

Scholars with support from their own institutions or grant-funded projects are welcome at the Hong Kierkegaard Library to use its resources and converse with other visiting scholars. Often there is an opportunity to stay at the Kierkegaard House while studying in the Library. There is also the possibility of obtaining housing on the St. Olaf campus depending upon the circumstances of individual scholars and the dates involved.

Kierkegaard scholars are invited to peruse their own research at the Kierkegaard Library during both the academic and summer months.

Application Process

For initial inquiries contact Eileen Shimota with a short proposal that states reason and interest for study in the Library. A formal application will include two recommendation letters from faculty and a detailed proposal and curriculum vitae.
