For the month of June 2017, I was lucky to be in Grand Rapids, Michigan as a Student Fellow at the H. Henry Meeter Center for Calvin Studies at Calvin College, where I completed research for my dissertation. I also gave a lecture on my findings, titled “Reformation & Transformation: From Convent to Hospital in Calvin’s Geneva.”
This was my second trip to the Meeter Center: I first made it to Calvin College in Summer 2014 for the Meeter Center’s biannual Genevan/French paleography course (which will be held again this summer). The Meeter Center has an unparalleled collection of primary sources, monographs, and articles on everything related to Calvin, Calvinism, and more. The Meeter Center offers fellowships and scholarships at all levels, from high school students to graduate students to faculty, and applications are due yearly on January 1. If you are a graduate student working on the Reformation or any of the areas impacted by international Calvinism, I highly recommend applying for a fellowship at the Meeter Center.
A major thank you to the Meeter Center for allowing me to visit this summer, and for your support of my research. I look forward to spending more time in Grand Rapids in the future!
